Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Near the start, there'll be a tall Warp Pipe after the first Fire Piranha Plant. Enter the pipe to the right of it, and you'll get a Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: Once you get a Mega Mushroom, keep moving right until you see the Star Coin. Then, ground pound the Warp Pipes beside the Star Coin. This'll allow you to grab the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Once you reach the vertical room with many Bump Platforms, go up the room, then go to the green Warp Pipes on the sides of the screen. Once you enter, you'll go above the room and get the third and final Star Coin.
