How to unlock the cheats menu: In order for this to work you must first have unlocked debug mode by collecting at least 16 medals from the bonus stages. Then, you need to enable Debug Mode at the Secrets menu which is found by pressing X (on Switch) / Triangle (on PS4) / Y (on Xbox One) at the File Select screen when the “No Save” option is highlighted.
