If you start up Super Mario 3D All-Stars, you’ll notice a patch is now live for the software. This update adds GameCube controller support to Super Mario Sunshine, which includes pressure-sensitive controls for F.L.U.D.D. But that’s not all the patch improves. It appears other various glitches, including the embarrassing debug cubes, have been stomped out entirely.
Now 3D All-Stars contains a Sunshine port it can be proud of

User @qseeker95 also discovered some fixes not listed in the patch notes. They include corrections for an aspect ratio glitch and a timed events sound issue:
