Fun in the sun

Super Mario Sunshine is a fun and unique adventure, and thanks to an update in resolution and wide-screen support, there's no better way to play than on Nintendo Switch. Experience these classics however you'd like, but remember that Super Mario 3D All-Stars won't be around for long. The collection disappears at the end of March 2021, so be sure to grab a copy when it releases on Sept. 18 2020.
