Super Mario 3D All-Stars update coming next month for a non-limited time

Some players weren’t thrilled with the lack of inverted cameral controls in Super Mario 3D All-Stars, so Nintendo’s popping them in.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars may consist of three of Mario’s most beloved adventures, but it is not without flaws.

Most of these problems return from the original games, like Super Mario Sunshine’s somewhat subpar controls, but some fans have been displeased with the lack of options.

One thing that has been heavily demanded is inverted camera controls, something which Nintendo appears to have taken notice of as it’s adding them in a future update.

Announced via the official Japanese Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Twitter account, the update will be made available on November 17 and provide an option for inverted camera controls for all three games.

The tweet doesn’t mention anything else so this might be the only substantial addition included in the update.

This has led to further requests, such as a patch that adds Super Mario Galaxy 2, but who knows if Nintendo intends to update the collection again after this.

After all, Super Mario 3D All-Stars is to be delisted, both physically and digitally, at the end of March 2021, though there have been theories and rumours that Nintendo is planning to release all three games in the collection separately.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars is available only on Nintendo Switch.
