Super Mario Sunshine’s Weirdness was Right at Home on the GameCube

Avclub: "This past Wednesday was the 15th anniversary of Super Mario Sunshine’s Japanese release. I’ve always had a lot of love for this tropical Mario adventure and had been wanting to write about it for a long time, so to mark the occasion, I booted it back up and replayed it with the last 10 years of 3-D Mario games in mind. I was fascinated by how different Sunshine was, not only from the games that followed but even when compared to its revolutionary predecessor. Down in the comments, Jakeoti pointed out how that represents Nintendo’s GameCube output as a whole."

This is the only Mario title I have not played, i was into PC in a big way back then.

I would love to play it, just to form my own opinion and this article has raised my desire to try it even more. Is there an easy way to play it without investing in the original hardware and copy of the game? I am at work so cannot visit Nintendo Arcade on my WiiU.

It runs well on Dolphin.

If you have a Wii you can play it just as well. You could also hack your Wii U, thats a way to play it.

Its a good game, and its very refreshing in contrast with the recent mario trend of "retro/nostalgia = king". Theres not a goomba in sight in the whole game.

Recently just repurchased a GameCube for $20 and super mario sunshine was the first to get. Playing it on an old school CRT tv with those controllers and that startup screen, what memories! Unique mario game, and odyssey coming out as the follow up to it is really cool.
