Owners of Super Mario 3D All-Stars are now able to play Super Mario Sunshine with a Nintendo GameCube controller.
Support for the GameCube controller in Super Mario Sunshine was added to Super Mario 3D All-Stars Version 1.1.0 update, the same update that added the ability invert camera controls in Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario 64.
There are a few caveats for those looking to play Super Mario Sunshine with the same controller it was developed for, however, including that it can only be played in TV mode, that there is Nintendo Switch Lite support, and that all button displays will not reflect the Nintendo GameCube controller.
Furthermore, players will need the GameCube Controller Adapter to use the controller on their Nintendo Switch.
The lack of inverted controls and GameCube controller support were two of our biggest issues with Super Mario Sunshine’s inclusion in Super Mario 3D All-Stars, especially considering the GameCube’s analog triggers allow for better control of water pressure.
