Of course, this isn’t meant for original N64 controllers. Instead, the patch adds compatibility for the recently released N64 wireless Switch controller (which also happens to be out of stock until 2022).
The controller could technically be used with Super Mario 3D All-Stars before this update, though the B button was mapped to jump instead of attack, making the game impossible to finish.
This update is no doubt welcome for those that actually managed to pick up one of the Switch N64 controllers, but it’s still odd for Nintendo to support a game they seemingly have no intention of reprinting — or even just re-opening digital purchases for.
