Super Mario 3D All-Stars (スーパーマリオ ３Ｄコレクション Super Mario 3D Collection?) is a Nintendo Switch 3D Platformer Compilation game that was released on September 18, 2020 for a limited time. Announced alongside to celebrate Mario's 35th Anniversary. 3D All-Stars includes high-definition ports of the first three 3D platformers in the Super Mario series: Super Mario 64 (1996), Super Mario Sunshine (2002), and Super Mario Galaxy (2007). The collection was only available until late March 2021.
According to video game news website Eurogamer, Nintendo referred to the compilation as Super Mario All-Stars 2 internally. Super Mario 3D All-Stars was officially announced on a Nintendo Direct presentation on September 3rd 2020.
All the games have been improved for a "smoother" experience, high-definition upgrades (up to 1920 x 1080 docked; except 64), and new Switch controls, while they maintain their faithful design and look. There will also be a new mode where the player can listen to whole soundtracks of all the three included games, whether the console is turned on or off. The text and dialogues are expected to be changed for improvement, removal of original console-exclusive features not compatible with the Switch, and to match the Switch controls. Some textures of these games have been updated, with Super Mario Sunshine having received the most texture updates.
64 maintains its original 4:3 aspect ratio, while now having a high-definition upgrade, up to a resolution of 960 x 720 in both docked and handheld modes. The HUD design has been modified for an HD upgrade as well which now looks smooth and more clear. The same is applied to Mario's "M" emblem. The game's title screen has a "Press +" text, replacing the "Press Start" text to match the Switch controls. Mario no longer says "So long, king Bowser!" when throwing him; he'll instead say "Bye-bye!" Some glitches like the backwards long jump have been fixed which means it might be based on the JP version.
Sunshine features an aspect ratio presentation of 16:9 hacked from the original using a Gecko widescreen code. Additionally, despite the Switch's capability to support the GameCube controller (via an adapter) and the game originating from the console, this version doesn't support such a controller.
Galaxy has motion controls through the use of two detached Joy-Con controllers. The star cursor is now determined by the motion of a Joy-Con rather than requiring a sensor bar, as it was in the original. The cursor can also be interacted through the use of touchscreen if played in handheld mode. A secondary Joy-Con controller is required for co-op 2-player mode. Other features like the Wii Message Board messages and the Wii Remote speaker hasn't returned as it is not present with the Switch's current hardware and features.
3D All-Stars received positive reviews. Metacritic gave a score of 82 based on eighty-six reviews. Cubed3 mentioned 3D-All Stars "represents the pinnacle of platforming goodness and with perfect ports". GamingTrend refers the game as a must-have if the stakeholder never played them or have no means of playing the copies you own. GamingTrend mentioned that "the included soundtracks are not enough to make this 35th anniversary package feel special enough to warrant a buy."
Kevin Knezevic on GameSpot rated the game as 8/10, saying, "despite their age, the games are still rife with inventive ideas and surprises, which more than makes up for the collection's presentational shortcomings."
- There was controversy about the game when it was discovered to have a limited release and not feature Super Mario Galaxy 2. Because of that, people started making memes about Mario dying on March 31, 2021.
- This was originally planned to be announced as an E3 presentation, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it became a Nintendo Direct.
- All the three games were emulated on the Switch.
