In a special Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Direct released by Nintendo today. Super Mario 64 is indeed coming to the Nintendo Switch in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars remake bundle that will be released on September 18, 2020.

Although Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy are also included and get a graphics enhancement to HD - in the same presentation.

Unfortunately, Super Mario 64 does not get a graphics remake, the engine looks the same as it did on the N64, it is still in the 4:3 letterbox presentation.

Unfortunately, Super Mario 64 on the Switch will not be an enhanced remake.

Some textures look slightly improved, such as the icons at the top of the screen showing the lives, coins and stars. In the trailer, the animation looks a bit smoother, but overall this appears to be the same look as it did on the N64.

Overall, it appears that the Super Mario 64 remake is similar to what you found on the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console, unfortunately it is not a full blown remake with a new graphics engine, which is somewhat disappointing.

However, does the re-release have any other additional enhancements or even new stages or bonuses? We will know more in the coming days.
