Right now, it’s mostly because everyone wants to know how exactly the motion controls work on the Nintendo Switch across docked and handheld play.
Polygon reached out to an official Nintendo representative, who shared the following information:
“Super Mario Galaxy is supported in TV, Tabletop and Handheld Modes. In TV and Tabletop modes, motion controls are required for pointer functionality. In Handheld Mode, pointer functionality has been adapted to use Touch Screen.”
Nintendo confirmed to the same source that the All-Stars would support the Switch Pro Controller. The official game page also provides some basic information about the motion and pointer functionality in the game:
Gently shake a Joy-Con™ controller to activate Mario’s Spin ability or pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend for some extra help in Co-Star Mode.
