Super Mario 3D World Cheats For Wii U

  1. Luigi Bros. Mini-Game

    You can unlock the Luigi Bros. mini-game (based off the original Mario Bros. arcade game) one of two ways: (1) Have a Super Luigi U save on your Wii U, or (2) Complete Worlds 1-8 in the main game. Either way, access the game by tapping the Luigi icon in the lower-left corner on the GamePad's touchscreen.

  2. Super Mario 3D World Unlimited Lives

    In world 1-2 when you enter the pipe at the beginning of the level you will come to wall climb up that, and there will be 1 turtle and a power up block. Now on the ground there will be 2 purple blocks smash thru that with a butt stomp,and there's another turtle down there, but what you want to do is stomp on him without hitting the shell. Afterwards you want to walk off from the left onto the shell, and if you do it right it will break the blocks and bounce back and fourth giving you as many lives as you want.

  3. Hidden Pipe to World 2

    Near the end of World 1-2, right above the stamp room is a hidden room that has an orange pipe. It can be reached by using the cat suit to climb up there, and once you go down it you'll warp to World 2.

  4. Secret Exit in 4-2

    When you re-enter the oustide area after the underground section, climb as a cat the wall behind the item roulette block. Follow the path and enter the pipe to get a shortcut to World 5.

  5. Fireworks

    Much like in the original Super Mario Bros. If you end a stage on a 1, 3, or 6 you will receive fireworks in the shapes of stars and circles.

  6. Giant 8-Bit Luigi

    In the first Bowser boss battle in the game, when you get the cat suit, why not run up a wall that makes you see a giant bridge! Stare at the bridge for a while and you will see a giant 8-Bit Luigi swimming in the water that is under the bridge! This Easter egg is very, very easy to do.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury Cheats For Nintendo Switch

  1. Bowser's Fury: Skip 2nd phase of 2nd and 3rd boss fights.

    It is possible to finish the 2nd boss fight as early as 16 cat shines and the 3rd Bowser fight at 40 cat shines, to even beat the game, by skipping the 2nd battle phases.

    Bowser typically retreats when his health reaches half, which then requires more cat shines to battle him again a 2nd time. This may be skipped if Bowser starts the battle with less than half health. Collecting a cat shine while Bowser is out will lower his health. This process may be sped up if using any Bowser Amiibo to call out Bowser just before collecting each shine. If done at least 11 times, Bowser will start the next boss fight at less than half health. If Bowser has already retreated, then it's too late to attempt this.

  2. White tanooki leaf in inventory

    This trick can only be done in a level with a secret exit, easily done in 1-2. Beating a level or dying will turn the white leaf into a regular leaf.
    First, lose enough lives to make the white leaf box appear, then either use the cat mario amiibo or multiplayer to get the leaf in item reserve.
    Then, use the secret exit. And boom, white leaf in inventory.
