Nintendo’s new update for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, the Switch collection that features Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy, gives players the option to invert camera controls in each game. Better still, that same update also adds support for Nintendo’s GameCube controller (but only for one of those games: Super Mario Sunshine).

GameCube controller support is limited to playing Super Mario Sunshine in TV mode, which means you can’t use one on a Nintendo Switch Lite. It also requires the GameCube controller adapter, which was originally released for Wii U but is supported on Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo announced support for inverted camera options in 3D All-Stars in October. Each game has its own settings, and Super Mario Sunshine offers the most granular control, letting players adjust the game cameras, FLUDD camera, and Mario-specific cameras to their liking.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars released for Nintendo Switch on Sept. 18. In our review of the collection, we called it a “perfect re-creation of an imperfect batch of games.” Nintendo will sell Super Mario 3D All-Stars through March 31, 2021, when it plans to pull the game for sale from the Switch eShop.
