GameXplain has given us an insight in to how the HD version of the excellent Super Mario Sunshine will look on Nintendo Switch compared to its original release on Gamecube. As you can imagine, the upgraded HD visuals and the addition of it playing in widescreen is immediately noticeable and the Isle of Delfino is looking better than ever. We also reported on a similar comparison video yesterday, but showing Super Mario 3D World and you can read (and watch) more about that here.
Check out GameXplain’s video below to see the comparison in action!
So who’s getting the All-Stars pack? (RIP WALLET)
I am, never played sunshine, so this is a brand new experience for me.
It’s the reason why I sold the GameCube. It wasn’t the proper successor to Super Mario 64. For me a let down.
Well I liked Mario sunshine way more than 64. I couldn’t really get into 64, the low polygon visuals and lack of shadows annoyed me.
My favourite 3d Mario games are
3. Galaxy 2
4. Galaxy 1
Already preordered. Considering a second one to keep sealed because of that “limited” clause.
Which is better two physical copies or one physical and one digital? Im thinking two physicals and keep one sealed.
I preordered it even before I read all of the details, or seen any video footage. Even before reading that it was going to be a limited release. Because I had a feeling it would be because of how quickly the Wii Super Mario All-Stars sold out and disappeared.
Is it that much better? Tough to tell…
Sunshine on Switch looks basically like a vast improvement detail wise.
It looks exactly the same minus the resolution adjustment
The resolution adjustment is a pretty huge deal both from a visual and latency standpoint. There are also screens out there demonstrating that texture quality has been noticeably increased in SM64, possibly the other games as well.
Think this is the first time I’ll ever buy a digital copy of a game and own a physical completely untouched
They just added blur on the GameCube version, I don’t remember it as that on a CRT. It was pretty clean.
It’s the same.
Did they use a $10 ezcap on the GC or something?
Got to admit, sort of weird. It actually looks like they took out the ‘heat’ affect in the remaster. You know, when you look into the distance and things go a little wobbly because of how damn hot it is? Yeah, Sunshine had that. And everyone here is totally onto it – the game looks nowhere near as fuzzy as it did in footage from the direct.
Super Mario Sunshine is an amazing game. I’ve finished it 4 times. And I’m pretty sure there’s still at least one more time in the pipeline!
