Super Mario Sunshine On Switch Now Supports GameCube Controllers

Super Mario 3D All-Stars has added a much-requested feature in its new update. The version of Super Mario Sunshine featured in the collection now supports the use of GameCube controllers. This means that players nostalgic for the analogue shoulder buttons of Nintendo’s older system can now recreate their early-2000s memories by playing Sunshine with the older controller.

To do so, players will need a GameCube Controller Adapter, which was released alongside Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This will allow you to play the game with the classic controls, meaning that you can use the right shoulder button to control the stream of your FLUDD. A light press will shoot a light stream of water; a full press gives you more control over your direction, while Mario is planted firm.

This wasn’t possible with the Joy-Cons or Pro Controller, so it’s a welcome addition. Unfortunately, it’ll only work with the Switch in

Samsung’s Smart Monitor can stream TV apps, supports AirPlay 2 and more

Samsung is no stranger to releasing quirky computer monitors, such as last year’s Space Monitor that articulates like the Microsoft Surface Studio desktop. For late 2020, the company is releasing the Smart Monitor, which it claims is the first monitor to combine over-the-top media services, mobile connectivity, and remote PC capabilities. Samsung is releasing the M5 lineup, consisting of a 27-inch size for $230 and a 32-inch size for $280. A 32-inch 4K monitor called the M7 is also coming that costs $400.

It’s not as immediately eye-catching as the aforementioned Space Monitor, but it makes up for it with having more features. Like Samsung’s line of TVs, the Smart Monitor runs Samsung’s Tizen OS software and can connect to your Wi-Fi network to stream HDR10 content from apps like Hulu, Netflix, Apple TV, YouTube, and more without the need for any extra hardware connected. You can install other apps
