Super Mario 3D All-Stars is launching in just a few hours worldwide, and it has now been confirmed that players will be asked to download a new update as soon as they try booting the game up.
GoNintendo confirmed today that Super Mario 3D All-Stars will get a day one update that will bump the game’s version up to version 1.0.1. Unfortunately, patch notes are not available, so we don’t know precisely what this update does.
In the past few days, a few new details on Super Mario 3D All-Stars have also been revealed. According to people who took a good look at the game’s code, all three games are not native ports, but are actually emulated, with the exception of Super Mario Galaxy, whose code has been reworked to run natively on the Switch CPU.
The fact that both Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine are emulated definitely bodes well for the future of the Nintendo Switch Online service, as working N64 and GameCube emulators could mean that more games could be added to the online service in the future.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars launches on September 18th on Nintendo Switch worldwide. The game will be available for purchase until March 31st, 2021.
