Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a Mario trio of classics coming to Nintendo Switch later this week, has already leaked to the internet, it has been claimed.
The game is expected to officially launch this Friday, but a known data miner Oatmeal Dom reports that the title has already found its way online, revealing some little curiosities about how the compilation was composed.
OatmealDome says: “It seems all games are emulated. Galaxy is Sunlight works with a Wii and GameCube emulator called “hagi”
They continue to note that with Super Mario Galaxy, it would appear that Nintendo has “recompiled the original code to run natively on the Switch CPU”, but has decided to run other aspects such as the GPU and audio via the emulator.
Interestingly, the main menu, which has already been shared online by Nintendo, was made using LunchPack, the engine reportedly used in Splatoon, Mario Maker, and Animal Crossing.
Thankfully, with the three games now over 10 years old, there’s no reason to worry about spoilers appearing online before the official release. However, if you wish to avoid any content that Nintendo hasn’t officially shared before the big day on Friday, you may want to be careful when browsing the internet in the next few days.
