World 1-2: Unlimited lives

Find the three Koopa Troopas and three coin blocks immediately after the checkpoint flag. Step on the first long coin block on the ground, then walk down onto the Koopa Troopa below when it moves directly below the coin block. If timed correctly you can bounce off the Koopa Troopa repeatedly and start unlimited lives.

World 1-2: Advance to World 2

After you get to the checkpoint flag, go to the three coin blocks with the Koopas. Jump on the middle one, then jump up as if you were going towards the back wall. You should reach a top ledge above. Run to the right, jump over the gap, and you will reach a orange pipe that will lead you to World 2.

World 2-3: Extra lives

At the end of World 2-3, go around flag pole and enter the small door in the castle to find a 1-Up mushroom island and a 1-Up mushroom.

World 4-2: Advance to World 5

Proceed through the level as normal. When you get to the three bounce blocks (the first one has 27 coins), jump on the second block. Bounce as high as possible, then wall jump on the left. You should wall jump to a secret hidden wall. Continue, and you will reach a orange pipe to World 5.

Easy lives

  • Reach the goal post while holding an item to convert it to an extra life.
  • In an airship with Boom Boom, jump on her head and stay there. She will bounce and you will get extra lives. Note: Do not stay there too long or you will lose your power-up.

Finding hidden items

If Mario looks up during game play, try to go where he is looking to find hidden coins and extra life blocks.

Grey Tanooki leaves

Collect a grey Tanooki leaf in the Special World. A red or green bandanna will appear around your neck. Do a Ground Pound and you will turn into a statue.

Golden Tanooki Suit

Fail a level repeatedly and an item box with a golden Tanooki leaf will appear. Hit the box to get a Tanooki suit which makes you invincible.

Test level

Remain idle at the title screen until a level preview begins. Continue to remain idle, and a test level will start, where you can practice your moves and play in a 3D puzzle.

Microphone features

  • Blow into the mic to blow away all the dandelions and automatically collect any hidden coins.
  • Blow into the mic to blow away any ink on the screen from the ink black piranha plants.

Control photographs

When viewing a photograph, as with the photo album, shake the 3DS to put some objects and characters in motion. For example, shake the 3DS when viewing the photo from World 4. You will eventually see Luigi jump up from the behind the castle wall in the background.

The Legend Of Zelda reference

Created by supershadowheroE3.

In World 5-2, have a Fire Flower. Reach the part where you are under a large "X", with a giant spiky pole circling above. Move to the left to find four lanterns. Light all four of them to hear the "secret" sound from The Legend Of Zelda, and get some coins and a medal.

Super Mario Bros. 3 reference

Lose your life ten times and a P-wing from Super Mario Bros. 3 will appear. Use it to reach the end of the level.
