It’s the home stretch for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, and Nintendo’s showing no signs of stopping its brief glimpses at these classics. The latest batch are from the Wii masterpiece Super Mario Galaxy.

While there was some initial ambiguity due to a focus on using Joy-Con to mimic the Wiimote and Nunchuck, we now have 100% confirmation of Galaxy in handheld mode. You’ll be able to tap the screen to both fire off and gather Star Bits. It’s also confirmed you’ll be able to use motion controls during minigames, like Ray surfing in the Loopdeeloop Galaxy.

The most ear-catching bit of this footage though is the Gusty Garden Galaxy. Carrying one of the best Mario songs in the modern era, it’s sure to be a highlight of your Mario Galaxy return. Look forward to that and more in Super Mario 3D All-Stars, coming this Friday, September 18th.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
