The day my kids and I have hoped for has arrived! Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy are coming to the Nintendo Switch in one awesome game bundle.
I was a teenager when Super Mario 64 was released and, like everyone else, I was blown away by how amazing the game was at the time. It introduced a new way of playing Mario – in 3D, and I spent countless hours exploring every nook and cranny.
Super Mario Sunshine came along in my mid-20’s, but playing it brought me back to being a kid again! I didn’t have nearly the amount of free time to play it, but that didn’t stop me from finding all the Shine Sprites.
Finally, I was a father when Super Mario Galaxy was released, and it was an incredible experience to play it with my kids. Nintendo once again reinvented the Mario experience, and it’s a game that my kids love to play again and again.
Now, all three games are available on the Nintendo Switch as part of the Super Mario 35th Anniversary. Read on to learn about this new game bundle!
Super Mario 3D All-Stars
Super Mario Sunshine is probably the game that my kids are most excited to play on our Switch. It’s amazing how that game continues to command a premium price on sites like eBay. Used copies can currently sell in the $60-$70 range!
Game Bundle Highlights
Optimized versions of 3D Mario games Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy are coming to Nintendo Switch in one package.
In addition to having higher resolutions than their original versions, the games have been optimized for a smooth gameplay experience on Nintendo Switch.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars also includes an in-game music-player mode to play the music and songs from all three games. Players can also listen to music on their Nintendo Switch systems when the screen is off.
A limited production of Super Mario 3D All-Stars launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch family of systems on Sept. 18 and will be available until approximately March 31, 2021.
