Thanks to Super Mario 3D All-Stars hitting the Nintendo Switch, tons of people will be playing Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy for the first time ever — I wish I can wipe my mind and play these for the first time too but oh well! If you’re wondering just how long Super Mario Sunshine takes to beat, here’s what you need to know.
How Long Is Super Mario Sunshine?
Super Mario Sunshine takes about 15 hours to beat, but those looking to 100% the game are looking more at 30-35 hours.
Compared to the 3D Mario title that came before this one, Super Mario 64, Sunshine will take players a bit longer to complete. Most players will see the end of the game and the credits after playing for about 15 hours, but that also depends on how you’re playing the game.
If you’re someone who wants to collect every sprite and blue coin that Super Mario Sunshine has to offer, it can take upwards of 30 hours, doubling the total playtime. Thanks to HowLongtoBeat for the player stats.
Luckily, if you don’t want to spend the extra time collecting every Shine Sprite in every single area, you can get through the story by simply completing some of the missions and grabbing only about 50 stars or so.
There are a total of 120 Shine Sprites in Sunshine, and there is even a little bonus award for those that can manage to do everything there is to see but we won’t spoil it here.
Hopefully that answered your question about how long Super Mario Sunshine takes to beat. If you’re looking for even more tips, just search Twinfinite.
