Most Popular Hints and Tips
You can blow into the microphone on the 3DS as a novelty to blow any dandelions on the screen, to collect any hidden coins, and to get rid of any ink that is blocking your screen produced by the black piranha plants.
In a level with Binoculars, locate and zoom in at Toad for something to happen.
Toad will either:
-Show you something like a Secret
-Drop an item like a 1-Up or a Star Coin
Note: This doesn't apply to the Bowser/Airship Levels
In W4-1, there is two Binoculars.
In W5-5, locate the Toad with the Block Propeller and he'll move to the finish. At the end you should see a Mushroom. The Mushroom only appears when the Toad is at the finish.
To play him, beat S1-castle. He's on lower screen.
To get S1 beat bowser's final castle.
Warning: when you enter S1 castle collect clocks.
Time starts @ 030.
After that you see a l. Push it.
If your level time ends in a 1, 3 or a 6, you will receive an additional fanfare when you hit the flag, similar to in the original Super Mario Bros.
A time ending in 1 will earn you some streamers, a 3 will give you fireworks, while a 6 will produce some balloons.
If you tilt or shake your 3DS during a cutscene you can get the characters involved to perform different actions and animations.
When you beat the game, the credits will show up and you can control Mario or Luigi and Peach using the control pad and press the B button if you want Peach to get spinned around
On World 2-3 At the end of the level where it looks like the classic Mario game you can go inside the castle and get a one up.
1-2: at the point where the koopas are jump on 1 of the ? Blocks are, jump & you'll find a hidden ledge.
Make it to the end & find the orange pipe. Go in it
& find yourself at w2.
4-2: at the bounce things go to the 2nd to last bounce thing. After the jump wall jump a few times. Like 1-2 it takes you to a new world.
The Final Level is broken up into stages, similar to the final level on Mario Galaxy 2. One of the stages includes a duo fight against those two Koopa Bosses.
It is highly recommend to have the Tanooki Suit, really helpful in the level. I recommend the Stoney Tanooki Suit, which is even helpful on the stage after the Bosses. It is good to have one on you and another in case in your item spot.
Hope this hint helps you get past the level.
There are three 1-Ups found in this level.
1: Head south of the checkpoint and east towards a box. Destroy it and go through the tunnel to get a 1-Up. There is a way out at the other end of the tunnel.
2: At the other end of the tunnel from the previous hint, climb up the tree and jump onto the yellow block on the right. Head south towards the bird. The bird will fly away and reveal a 1-Up.
3: Head right of the checkpoint pole and jump over the fence to the platform on the other side. South point of that platform is a 1-Up.
These can give you a good start to the game if this is your first time playing.

Another location where this can happen is in World 4-1. Near the beginning of the stage, there is a patch of water. There is a Koopa Troopa in front of the water. Kick the Koopa into the narrowest portion of water on the far left so it bounces quickly back away and towards the screen. Try to jump on the Koopa near the edge where it turns around. If you land on it in the right place, Mario will bounce, getting a life every time he lands after the first few hits. No presses of JUMP are needed to keep Mario jumping on the shell. It may take a few tries before this works.
Ok on 5-5 go all the way to where when you kill that giant mushroom guy with a tail who drops a tail thing if it is your 1st 10th 20th 30th 40th 50th 60th 70th 80th or 90th then you should see a block flying over you hit it and you'll get a 1-up if you have a tail go to the side where there's a block hit it with your tail and a thing comes out hit that a bazillion times and you'll go and have a boost
At the classic end like thing pass flag & enter castle.
