Can you do the BLJ in Super Mario 64 (3D All Stars)?

In this collection of three classic Mario games namely Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy, you will see retouched versions of the original games. There are a few changes though and one of them involves the Backwards Long Jump.

So to answer your question, Nintendo has removed the BLJ in Super Mario 64 on Switch because it was actually a glitch that was exploited.  It is one of the most well-known glitches and exploits in the gaming world. Its removal, although good for a majority of players, is unfortunate news for all those who were hoping to speedrun through it. Especially in areas of slopes, stairs and moving platforms, speedrunners have made the most of the Backward Long-Jumping technique.

This is basically the sad news for some Mario fans about the Backward Long Jump in Super Mario 64 3D All Stars. You can still do the Long Jump to cover long distances, though. It will come in handy when you want to jump over long gaps such as the one in Hazy Maze Cave. Plus, you can also obtain the Wing Cap and Metal Cap to give some additional powers to Mario.
