Button mapping[edit]

If a Nintendo 64 controller for the Nintendo Switch is connected, the main menu's sound effects are replaced by those from Super Mario 64. Unlike the other applications, the rewind feature is not available in this application.

* - The game being played determines whether Control Stick and Z Button or +Control Pad and L Button are being mapped to the Joy-Con's Control Stick and SL Button. Pokémon Puzzle League, Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2 use the control stick mapping, despite the fact that the Stadium games mainly use the +Control Pad for gameplay and menu navigation while Control Stick is only used in some minigames, while Pokémon Puzzle League uses L Button for gameplay and Z Button is only used in a few cheat codes.
** - Sin and Punishment uses Right C Button instead of Down C Button while Z Button is mapped to both ZL Button and ZR Button.

To get to the bottom of things, you'll face fast-and-furious action as all sorts of villainous types scramble to get their hands on Dr. Mario's Megavitamins.
