One of the fun Nintendo Switch games this year is definitely the new iteration of Super Mario. However, just like any other games, many reports have reached us that people are experiencing crashing issues when playing Super Mario 3D All-Stars. If you’re one of them, this guide should help in fixing the problem for you.

What are the reasons for Super Mario 3D All-Stars crashing problems?

We’ve rounded up three possible reasons why you may be experiencing crashes when playing Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Let’s take a quick look at each of them below.

Random game bugs.

New games like Super Mario 3D All-Stars  may sometimes develop bugs after release. Usually, these types of bugs are minor although some, like frequent crashes or freezes may also be become persistent for a while. 

The good thing is that developers are constantly on alert for these problems so they also become ironed out eventually.

Game copy is buggy.

For those who don’t want to shell out the full price of the game, or even wants to get games for free, they may resort to shadier tactics of obtaining them. We know that there are people who are playing a pirated copy Super Mario 3D All-Stars and these games seem to be the ones having the crashing issues right now. 

Nintendo Switch is modified or modded.

Modifications to the official Nintendo Switch software is a double edged sword for some. While using a modded Nintendo Switch can be beneficial for some, others may find it problematic as some games may not work properly. 

We’ve been getting reports that only those who are running Super Mario 3D All-Stars on modded consoles are experiencing crashing issues at this time. If you have a modded Switch, you should consider updating your custom firmware before playing the game again, revert to using the official Nintendo software.

How to fix Super Mario 3D All-Stars crashes?

There are two things that we find helpful in fixing crashes on Super Mario 3D All-Stars.

Reboot the Switch.

If your Nintendo Switch is not modded and you have an official copy of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, then you may just be experiencing a random glitch with the game. What you can do is to restart the console by turning it off completely using the Power button on top.

To turn off the console, just press and hold the Power button for about 3 seconds. Once the Power options appear, select Power Off. Turn the console back on again and check for the problem.

If the game has become unresponsive and you can’t do anything, you can try to press and hold the Power button for about 12 seconds. This is going to force the Switch to reboot.

Update the custom firmware.

If you play the Nintendo Switch Super Mario Super Mario 3D All-Stars with an unofficial firmware and you are experiencing frequent crashes, the best thing that you can do right now is to update. Hopefully, the newer firmware update that you’ll get will already include the necessary JIT module needed to run the game properly.
