Someone got this off the packaging apparently 

 

*If playing on Nintendo Switch Lite, detached Joy-Con controllers are required and sold separately. See support.nintendo.com/switch/play for details.

 

 

 

Edit: apparently its on the official game website at https://www.nintendo...l-stars-switch/

 

so unfortunately motion controls might still be a thing?

It's only for the distract your kid mode where they point at the screen to pick up the star sprites in Galaxy if I remember the Wario64 tweet correctly,

 

Or Nibel I should say.

They would offer it without as well, since they would be greatly limiting the audience by making a Lite user buy JC's, especially when those things are Janky as well(for a different reason than Wii Motion).

Was G&W ever active, as it's not showing it can be ordered currently?

Never played Galaxy so great deal for that. Been meaning to replay Sunshine too so this is perfect.

here's the paragraph that has the Asterisk:

 

Defy gravity as you explore space in the Super Mario Galaxy™ game, originally released in 2007! Help Rosalina restore her ship by collecting Power Stars and save Princess Peach. Gently shake a Joy-Con™ controller to activate Mario’s Spin ability or pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend for some extra help in Co-Star Mode*.

So... maybe it's mentioning co-star mode requiring the joy cons?

 

Edit: and as soon as I post this... a post earlier was edited lol. (or since the twitter embeds rarely show up... May have not seen it)

I am so stoked for this! Sunshine has been at the top of my wishlist of remasters for a long time. I have it in GameCube, but I really don’t want to play it that way. I have slightly better ways to play Mario 64 (3ds) and Galaxy (Wii U), but to have them on the Switch with better resolution and widescreen support just makes me so happy.

Side note for the very few remaining gcu members: I was, surprisingly, able to combine my gcu with a 10% off single item coupon that I had in mybestbuy offers. Came out to about $43 plus tax

I guess I stand corrected, as this is even a new low for "N", but I wish I could say I was surprised?

EDIT: Lucky for me I never planned to buy this collection, as the only game I would have wanted was M64, and I can play that on my Shield Portable, and it looks just as good. Needing to buy a JC to play Galaxy on the Lite, when "N" has offered an official Android version that doesn't use motion controls, so why force it here? Seems like a way to sell more broken JC, but maybe there's another reason?

it's been addressed, it's for Co-Star mode. Or in other words, like EVERY other coop game on the lite that would require a 2nd controller.

Does anyone actually WANT a skyward sword remaster?

I think a Zelda 3D all stars would be much easier to make (dont have to redesign controls around lack of motion plus) and sell a lot better. OOT and/or majora's mask, windwaker, and twilight princess on one cartridge. The last two are already remastered so it shouldn't be difficult.

I would love to have an HD version of Skyward Sword with absolutely no motion controls.

 

I thought I saw some waggling going on in the promo video for Mario Galaxy. Is there going to be waggling or not? I don't want any waggling, for the love of Pete!

I put this in the amiibo thread and will mention here since Super Mario 3D world + Bowsers Fury is one of the pre-orders in this thread.

 

Cat Mario and Cat Peach are up on Best Buy for pre-order.

I Hope this isn't going to be the norm with Nintendo moving forward, especially with that rumored Skyward Sword remaster coming, but then again the Classic consoles they released didn't last a year either...


Can totally see this being the norm. I mean, isn't Sony basically even planning to sell PS5s directly?

Anyways, don't care about how limited it is. I just don't want to deal with buying from stupid scalpers.

Put in a preorder at walmart. They're generally good at release day delivery.

They may be working on the logistics of that, with an announcement coming soon maybe for holiday or spring release next year? It may have been planned, and just didn't happen due to Covid, as they can't produce enough Lites & OG's to meet demand currently?

 

Why piss off even more people by offering a LE system no one can buy? Wait a minute, actually that's their MO for LE systems, so your guess is as good as mine? LOL

Got my 3D All Stars order in at Best Buy earlier.  Thanks for the thread, it made this pretty easy.  I went with BB as I've had some positive deals with them and they promise release day delivery.  Last game I preordered with them came a day early.  I am not  a prime member so not willing to wait 5 to 7 days after release as punishment and would get from Walmart if I was sure they would actually be on the shelf with that sweet $10 discount.  Not bothering with Walmart online ordering, even though it's been pretty flawless for me.  Might as well give my business to BB.  Maybe they won't go the way of Circuit City.

Its the Game & Watch Mario that is going to be a race to preorder I think. I'll be ok with digital on All-Stars.

I grabbed my Pokémon lite a month or two after it launched, guess it just depends.

GCU would be the way for me, if mine didn't expire long ago.  I may go the wally world route and, may be, get the 49.94.

 

Also, wait for November.

They're going to stop selling this physically AND digitally after March 2021? Physical, I get, but digital too? 

 

And they got rid of "so longay Bowser" apparently. 

 

Nintendo, the Fuck

Why did you choose GameStop over Walmart, Target, Amazon, or Best Buy?

 

I'm asking because my pain-in-the-ass retailer rankings go like this (from most painful to least painful):

 

GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, Walmart.

I don't think that's it. The physical is limited from the start, digital will be till March 2021.
