  • Here is a video walkthrough for lots of tips and tricks throughout the game. They even talk about New Super Mario Bros. 2!

    How to play as Luigi in single player mode:
    At the “select a file” screen, keep the L and R buttons held down and choose one of your saved game files with the A button.
    Now you’ll play as Luigi instead of Mario!

    How to unlock worlds
    World 4: Defeat the boss in the last castle of World 2 as Mini Mario
    World 7: Defeat the boss in the last castle of World 5 as Mini Mario

    How to Access the Secret Challenge Mode
    While paused on the map, press L, R, L, R, X, X, Y, Y, to enter the secret Challenge mode. You will now be unable to go back to an area that has scrolled off the screen while playing a level. This cheat only works after you finish the game.

    Extra Lives at Flagpoles:
    As you may know, jumping onto the flagpole at the stage’s end will net you some points (up to 8000). If you somehow manage to jump high enough and land on the very top of the flagpole though, you will automatically receive an extra life (1-Up).

    Original Mario Bros theme and fireworks
    If you beat a level with a time left of x11, x22, x33, x44 etc you get fireworks and the original Super Mario Bros. level completion tune will play.

    Warp Zone Cannons List:
    In some worlds, there are cannons you can access (usually through taking secret exits). When you enter the cannon area, there will be a large cannon in the area, and a world number written below it. If you want to warp, simply drop into the cannon and blast off!

    World 5 Warp #1: Take the secret exit from the World 1 Tower.

    World 5 Warp #2: Take the secret exit from Stage 2-A.

    World 6 Warp: Take the secret exit from the World 3 Ghost House.

    World 7 Warp: Take the secret exit from the World 4 Ghost House.

    World 8 Warp: Take the secret exit from the World 5 Ghost House.

    Mushroom Houses at start of each world
    The mushroom houses at the start of each world (the point with an arrow at the start) differ determining on the time you get on a stage.

    If you get x11, x22, x33 on the timer, a Red Mushroom House appears, which generates items.
    If you get x44, x55, x66 on the timer, a Green Mushroom House appears, which is a 1-Up mini-game.
    If you get x77, x88, x99 on the timer, a Orange Mushroom House appears, which lets you gain a Mega Mushroom into your inventory, thus overriding anything in it.

    Special Background Patterns & Unlimited Toad House Items:

    To get a special Background pattern, beat the game once. To get unlimited Toad House items, clear every level, including lettered bonus levels.

    How to save anywhere on the map:
    Beat the game. After completing world 8 you’ll see a Star Mark next to your save file. This means that you can now save anywhere on the map screen by selecting Save under the map screen menu.
