Super Mario 3D All-Stars Update N64 controller

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Update Adds N64 Controller Support

A new update for Super Mario 3D All-Stars has added support for yet another iconic controller. With the 1.1.1 update, Super Mario 64 now supports the new N64 controller, allowing players to  play the game exactly how it was when it released in 1996. This follows a similar update from last year that added Gamecube controller support for Super Mario Sunshine. [Thanks, Wario64!]

It’s important to note that the N64 controller requires a Nintendo Switch Online membership to use. With a subscription, you can pair the controller with the Switch and play with the same control scheme as the original game. However, Nintendo also notes that the in-game button prompts will not change. This means that while players can use N64 buttons and controls, the button prompts will default to Switch button displays.

Below are the full patch notes from Nintendo’s support site:

  • Super Mario 64 now supports the Nintendo Switch Online member exclusive Nintendo 64 Controller (sold separately). Players can now play this title using the same controls as found in the original Nintendo 64 release.

Nintendo revealed the Switch Online subscriber-exclusive N64 and Sega Genesis replica controllers earlier this year. The controllers debuted alongside a new Nintendo Switch Online expansion pack that adds a collection of N64 and Sega Genesis games.

The new version 1.1.1 update for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, which adds N64 Controller Support, is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch.
