  • Five Character Stamps

    In order to get the last five character stamps, you have to beat all the levels with every character. This includes Blockades and Mystery Houses but does not include Captain Toad levels. In multiplayer, the character has to touch the flag for it to count. After gaining access to World Crown, you will be able to see what characters you have beaten a level with with the other collectibles.

  • 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.

  • Save File Stars

    Like other Mario games, you can get up to 5 stars on your game save file, representing what is essentially 100% completion of the game. FINAL WORLD - The first 4 stars must be gained in order to unlock World 12 (Crown), and the 5th star can be gained afterward. FINAL CHARACTER STAMPS - Beating every level with every character will get you their final Character Stamp. This includes World 12 (Crown), so it's not needed for Star #3, only Star #5. GLITTERING STARS - Your save file stars will be glittering if none of your levels have been cleared using an Invincibility Leaf. If any of them have, simply go back and clear those levels legitimately to get the glittering stars.

Easter Eggs

  • 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.

Secrets

  • 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.

  • 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.

Secret Items

  • 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.
