Super Mario 64
Head to the waterfall near the castle. Climb the third tree from the waterfall. Do a handstand at the top to nab the 1-Up Mushroom. Now head inside to the castle’s first floor. Go back to the same tree and repeat for more lives.
There’s an upgraded triple jump move that makes Mario invincible during the third leap! Nab all 120 stars. Head outside the castle. Hop into the cannon that appears near the fishpond. Aim above the roof to fire Mario up there. Speak with Yoshi to nab 100 lives, plus the upgraded triple jump.
Super Mario Sunshine
First, score 25 Shine Sprites in Super Mario Sunshine. Then head to Pinna Park and complete the story. At the end, you should be back in town. Fake Mario will rock up with an egg. Chase him down to nab a rideable Yoshi! Yoshi can eat fruit and spit out juice to fell foes. Plus, he helps Mario jump higher.
Every time you beat a level, head to the water where the boats come and go. Dive to the bottom to find a 1-Up. Whenever you start a level or finish one, that 1-Up will be there. Grab it every time to stay stocked up on lives!
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario Galaxy is a Mario adventure. But you can play as Luigi. First, nab all 120 Stars. Then visit Rosalina on the Comet Observatory. Tell her you want to biff Bowser again. Then beat Bowser to unlock a different ending. After the credits roll, you can play as Luigi! Mario’s bro sprints faster and jumps higher.
The Red Luma above the Bedroom Done has a secret. First, sniff out all 100 purple coins. Nabbed all of them? Head back to the Red Luma to score a red star that lets you fly after a midair spin. These red stars will now appear around the Comet Observatory for further flying fun!
