A game in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection that seems to attract special attention is Super Mario Galaxy.

Right now, that’s mainly because everyone wants to know how exactly the motion controls will work on the Nintendo Switch on a docking station, table, and handheld.

Polygon contacted an official Nintendo representative, who shared a few more details:

« Super Mario Galaxy is supported in TV, tabletop and portable modes. In TV and tabletop modes, motion controls are required for pointer functionality. In handheld mode, the pointer functionality has been adapted to use the touch screen. “

Nintendo has confirmed to the same source that All-Stars will support the Switch Pro controller. The official game page also provides basic information about motion controls and pointer functionality in Galaxy:

Gently shake a Joy-Con ™ controller to activate Mario’s Spin ability or pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend for extra help in Co-Star mode.

Can’t wait to see this 2007 Wii title again when All-Stars releases later this month? Tell us below.
