What Games Are Included?

The games that will be included are:

Super Mario Sunshine

Time to hit the beach in Super Mario Sunshine! Mario travels to the beautiful Isle Delfino for a tropical vacation with his friends but instead finds himself teaming up with trusty F.L.U.D.D. to uncover a shadowy plot and the master puppeteer behind it all.

His newfound friend also allows Mario to traverse worlds in all sorts of unique ways thanks to its wonderful water pump!

Original Report

Back during the beginning of April, a report surfaced from VGC and a follow-up report from Eurogamer, which outlined some details regarding the remakes of certain Nintendo games. 

According to the official report which can be found here, VGC claims that:

"these remasters will include 1997’s Super Mario 64, 2002’s Super Mario Sunshine and 2007’s Super Mario Galaxy."


So it appears Nintendo is going all out for their 35 birthday, and this may also be in large part due to the on-going global pandemic. Perhaps Nintendo is filling the void that they originally had with other first-party titles, but are being forced to delay them.
