Nintendo has rolled out Super Mario 3D All-Stars update 1.1.1, which adds support for the recently-released Nintendo 64 (N64) controller for the Switch.
Alongside the introduction of Nintendo’s premium tier Switch Online service, the Switch Online + Expansion Pack, Nintendo released the Switch Online member-exclusive N64 controller in order to fully experience the new Nintendo 64 library of games.
Following the release of the new Switch N64 controller, Nintendo has now also released an update for last year’s classic Super Mario 3D collection that allows players to play Super Mario 64 collection using the same controls as found in the original Nintendo 64 release. Further release notes for this update haven’t been shared. Nonetheless, we’ve included the official release notes, as supplied by Nintendo, down below:
