The new Mario Nintendo Switch Collection is not worthy of the All-Stars name

After months of heady rumors around a series of remasters for some of the most beloved Mario games out there – in celebration of Mario’s 35-year anniversary as one of gaming’s most iconic, well, icons – we finally have confirmation. Nintendo Switch is getting a Mario 3D All-Stars trilogy featuring Mario 64 (1997), Super Mario Sunshine (2002), and Super Mario Galaxy (2007) – but it’s not quite the good news it may seem on the surface.

Nintendo has been here before, with 1993’s Super Mario All-Stars, which landed on the SNES and contained four classic 2D Mario games initially released on the NES: Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros 2, and Super Mario Bros 3. This compilation remastered every level for the upgraded hardware, with updated graphics and music – and went on to become a critically-acclaimed bestseller.
