The Perfectly Subtle Remaster of Super Mario 64 in 3D All-Stars

It may not be a full on remake, but Super Mario 3D All-Stars version of Mario 64 is hiding quite a few upgrades

"The Perfectly Subtle Remaster..."

It's not a remaster. It's literally just an N64 rom running in a Switch emulator. That's been confirmed in pre-release coverage. The emulator may be applying some filters to make it look nicer, but Nintendo didn't do **** when it came to remastering the game

... That's not how filters work. The manner of getting a game to run is less important than the final results. If we throw out anything that emulates old code I have horrible news about a lot of remasters.

There's some Lua scripting hacks that are replacing some assets with redrawn or scaled art.
