Super Mario Sunshine on Switch – What it Offers

Super Mario Sunshine will be released to the public on the Nintendo Switch as part of a limited-time offering alongside the Super Mario 64 and the Super Mario Galaxy games in the 3D All-Stars package. It will be launched on Friday and will only available until March 2021. 

Originally debuting on the GameCube some 18 years ago, this title launches exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Set on Isle Delfino, the once beautiful island is discovered to be covered in goop and scum, and it’s up to Mario and you to save the day.


What starts as a holiday for Mario, Peach, and the toads on the sunny tropical paradise quickly turns into a nightmare as Mario is captured for a crime he isn’t responsible for. Take part in clearing his name by going through a series of challenges, collecting Shine Sprites, and more. 

Game Highlights Exclusively Available on the Nintendo Switch

Eighteen years after the game was released on the GameCube in 2002, the star of the show is still the Flash Liquidizing Ultra Dousing Device, otherwise known as FLUDD. And for a good reason. After all, this rugged device helps you douse water all over the island, making clean-up a breeze. 

For the Switch edition, however, players can enjoy better experiences thanks to a variety of nozzle upgrades using the FLUDD. FLUDD is now more powerful than ever, thanks to these new features and additions. Among the different nozzles available for use are the squirt nozzle for cleaning the town and blasting enemies and the hover nozzle for flying. 


Apart from those mentioned above, there is also an addition of a rocket nozzle for a more powerful sky-blasting power and a turbo nozzle that can push Mario across the sea with the help of a powerful stream of water behind him. 

Other Upgrades

Other upgrades that can be enjoyed via the Nintendo Switch is the updated Joy-Con controls, browsable soundtrack, and higher resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio, perfect for gaming on larger screens. The graphics and visuals of the game have also been improved and optimized to provide players with a smoother and more seamless gameplay

Super Mario Sunshine on Switch has also included a host of other features, with some firsts gracing the screen yet again. This consists of the full cinematic cutscenes the game is known for, the comeback of Bowser Jr, Yoshi in 3D, and Princess Peach in a ponytail.
