Celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario franchise, Super Mario 3D All-Stars bundles "enhanced ports" (read: HD emulations) of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and their respective soundtracks.

The game infamously came with a six-month-long print run, and copies were only produced through March 31, 2021. Inexplicably, this also applied to the digital version. As a result, the game is currently unavailable digitally.

Hmmm...
To do:
The launcher app has some misc files from an unknown (as of release) 3D Mario game and maybe other games. (2021-02 update - is it related to Bowser's Fury?)

Game Changes

Each game received a fair amount of changes. Full lists can be found on the below pages:

The most important changes are summarized below:

  • Super Mario 64 is based on the 1997 Shindou Pak Taiou Version, with the text translated for non-Japanese languages and some textures being redrawn in a higher resolution. These changes are patched in on the fly as the game runs. Unlike the other games, which run in 1080p while docked and 720p in handheld, 64 runs in 720p at all times.
  • Super Mario Sunshine now runs in 16:9 widescreen, and similar to 64, the textures and cutscenes are upscaled to HD. Like 64‍ '​s updated textures, Sunshine‍ '​s upscaled cutscenes are patched in on the fly; as a result, if the ISO is ripped and loaded in an emulator like Dolphin, the cutscenes will not display (though the game will otherwise function normally). Hilariously, it was compatible with practically every Switch controller except the GameCube one until patch 1.1.0, which added GameCube controller support for Sunshine.
  • Super Mario Galaxy, like Sunshine, uses Nintendo's own GameCube/Wii emulator, Hagi. The code was partially recompiled to run on the Switch's CPU, but the graphics and DSP are emulated by Hagi. A large amount of the game's unused content was removed to make it fit a smaller file size. Like the other two games, several textures were upscaled or redone and are patched in while the game runs.

Emulators

N64 Renderers

18n64Kirby64Renderer
20n64MarioGolfRenderer
21n64MarioStoryRenderer
22n64MarioTennisRenderer
22n64PerfectDarkRenderer
22n64PokemonSnapRenderer

Leftover strings found throughout the code of the Super Mario 64 NCA. They reference the Nintendo 64 games Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Mario Golf, Paper Mario (by its Japanese name Mario Story), Mario Tennis, Perfect Dark, and Pokémon Snap. Although possibly unrelated, it's worth noting that all of these games will be releasing on Nintendo Switch Online's upcoming N64 Expansion Pack with the exception of Perfect Dark, although Banjo-Kazooie, another Rare title, is also set.

Unused Control Schemes

In each game, there are configuration files that tell the emulator how to run. In Super Mario Sunshine, there are different control schemes in the configuration file, one of which is for a computer keyboard.

"Input" : { 
			"0" : 
			{ 
				"Keyboard" : 
				{ 
					"KeyPadAxisLeftX" : "Axis(NumPad4,NumPad6)", 
					"KeyPadAxisLeftY" : "Axis(NumPad2,NumPad8)", 
					"KeyPadAxisRightX" : "Axis(NumPad9,NumPad7)", 
					"KeyPadAxisRightY" : "Axis(NumPad1,NumPad3)", 
					"KeyPadAxisTriggerLeft" : "NumPad5", 
					"KeyPadAxisTriggerRight" : "Add(E, Clamp(Z, 0.0, 0.99))", 
					"KeyPadButtonA" : "Q", 
					"KeyPadButtonB" : "S", 
					"KeyPadButtonDown" : "KeyDown", 
					"KeyPadButtonL" : "NumPad5", 
					"KeyPadButtonLeft" : "KeyLeft", 
					"KeyPadButtonR" : "E", 
					"KeyPadButtonRight" : "KeyRight", 
					"KeyPadButtonStart" : "Space", 
					"KeyPadButtonUp" : "KeyUp", 
					"KeyPadButtonX" : "X", 
					"KeyPadButtonY" : "Y", 
					"KeyPadButtonZ" : "R" 
				}, 

Project Dates

Sunshine Save File

Present in the data/saves/MarioSunshine directory is a save file that uses a different format than a traditional GameCube or emulator. If one is able to convert the save into the standard format, it can be seen that the last modification date was February 19, 2020 at 12:14:57 PM (UTC). The save file is empty and is most likely used to bypass the Memory Card file creation process that happens when Sunshine is played for the first time.

Cutscene and Movie Dates

The video files in each game contain extra data of when they were created.

  • The main launcher's video files have creation dates of around March 4-11, 2020, and a last-modification date of April 15, 2020.
  • For Super Mario Sunshine, the cutscenes were all last modified on April 7-10 with the exception of the intro video, which was modified on February 6.
  • The Super Mario Galaxy cutscenes were modified on April 11-14.

Internal Project Name

Super Mario 3D All-Stars is internally referred to as Stardust in the data of Super Mario 64, the GCM file for Super Mario Sunshine, and in strings from the launcher's executable.

Leftover Game Data

Stage Names

Inside /SystemData/MemorySystem.alsarc.zs in the launcher is a file called HeapSizeDefine.byml, which contains names for stages that don't exist, as the launcher doesn't actually have any stages. Interestingly, a good number of them namedrop Pikmin.

A list of these stage names is below:

Sound Files

In the archive \Sound\Attenuation\Attenuation.baatarc.zs in the launcher is a bunch of files related to sound attenuation that... don't seem to be related to Super Mario 3D All-Stars, but rather another Mario title, and other Nintendo franchises.
