Here are a series of tips / tricks of Super Mario 3D World for Nintendo Wii U and that will definitely make the game much easier. As always from Trucoteca we recommend that you try to play without using them to get the most out of the playable experience. Be as it is and as always … you choose.
Trick / Cheat to get infinite lives:
To perform this trick you have to bounce the turtle shell against the wall, with your flower of fire, which rises to the purple bricks. Once on top, shoot two new fireballs to get into the upper tube. The shell will get stuck in a crack to the right, on top of a tube, bouncing between wall and wall at high speed.
Cheats / Tips / Traps for the game:
The weather on the main menu of Super Mario 3D World changes every time you leave the game from the world map.
Encarámate to the trees to find coins and power-ups.
Activate the Stage Pennant to receive a Mushroom.
Run through the bushes to get gold coins occasionally.
You can attack the Picacóndores from behind to avoid his peck.

Blow into the microphone of the Wii U GamePad to see the invisible blocks.
Run to the stunned enemies and Mario will push you out of your way with a kick.
Pick up the Double Cherry to add another Mario to your team. Now you will have double attacks. Are the characters too far away? Walk to a corner to form a triangle, or together a wall for a straight line.
Tired of sliding on the ice? Crouch down by pressing and holding the ZL button and then turn the left analog stick to move Mario without fear.
Collect Watches + to add 100 seconds to the counter. Small watches add 10 seconds.

As soon as you reach the Stage Pennant you will keep all the Green Stars collected, even if you die. That said, it is sometimes a good idea to pick up the second Green Star and then activate the Pennant. Avoid having to collect the same Star repeatedly. Keep in mind that not all levels allow it.

Secret shortcut from World 1-2 to World 2
First get the cat costume in the 1-1 World. Now go to the underground zone of World 1-2. Go through the transparent pipes until you reach one with two paths to the exit (one of them with a row of coins). After leaving the pipe you will find a block elongated next to the wall. Use this block to bequeath to an upper area with a Koopa Troopa. Climb the wall in the area where the Koopa Troopa is to reach a hidden red pipe that will take you to World 2.
Secret shortcut from World 4-2 to World 5
This shortcut requires the cat’s costume. After reaching the groundwater zone of world 4-2, you will be in front of an area where there are platforms floating in purple water. Go to the left wall, climb it to reach the top of the waterfall and jump down the floating platforms until you reach the other side where you will find a secret red pipe that takes you to the world 5.
Here you have an explanatory video in which you can see how to reach both secret paths.
Location of Green Stars and Seals
Look at the locations listed below to find all the green stars and seals.
Get Shining Stars
In order to get bright stars from the top of the flagpole at each level, do not take the invincibility sheets of each level. Note: if you die five times in a round the invincibility will be activated automatically, so you will not be able to get the bright star in this case.
Get Stamps easily
To get all the stamps you will have to play with all the characters. The best thing to do is to play in multiplayer mode so you can collect the stamps more easily.
Get all final Seals
In order to get the final five seals, you must successfully complete all levels with the five characters (Luigi, Mario, Peach, Rosalina, and Toad), including locked worlds and Mysterious Houses, but not Captain Toad levels. In multiplayer mode, the character has to touch the flag to count that character. After having access to the Crown World, you will see which characters you have unlocked in each level as well as the rest of the collectibles information.
When you jump to the top of a flagpole, it will turn from red to gold. However, if you collect all the green stars of the level, alternatively you will see a green star floating on the flag.
Hidden 8-bit Luigis
Spread throughout the game there are some 8-bit Luigis. You can find them by hitting the «?» Blocks or watching them using binoculars during certain moments of the game.
