It’s a big week for Nintendo Switch gamers, as Super Mario 3D All-Stars arrives. But it’s not alone, as a solid lineup accompanies it.
A new Super Mario All-Stars? It’ been a long time since we’ve seen that. Fans will recall of course, that the original game to bear that name was a SNES title, and upgraded all of the NES Super Mario titles with 16bit graphics.
That’s not quite what we’re seeing with Super Mario 3D All-Stars, but honestly most fans will probably take it. Super Mario 64, Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy are all included in the set, which definitely does get a visual bump for the Switch.
It’s just that it’s not quite the leap that 16bit had over 8. We’re talking higher resolutions and a performance bump mainly. Still, it’s tough to argue with how cool this pack is.
So what else is there? Well there’s WWE 2K Battlegrounds, the arcade-like, ‘more fighting game than grappler’ WWE title, as well as Castlestorm II, Unrailed!, Mini Motor Racing X, and a stable of others.
Scroll down to check it all out.
