It’s that time again! Yes, Nintendo 3DS Daily has got another e-mail from someone wanting to know how to beat a certain 3DS game, so I thought I’d answer their question in the form of an article. Here’s the original message and what it said:
Please help! We have the NEW mario nintendo 3DS, and i swear the world 2, the end of that world is driving me nuts! I thought for sure if i got all 3 gold stars, then that would allow me to get to world 3, but ah last it hasn’t! The game is called super Mario 3D land. But i can’t get finished with world 2. What else do i have to do to finish that world?
The answer here is simple. You don’t have to get all the Star Coins to beat each world. No, what you have to do is play through all the levels in that world and beat them. This includes the final world level and boss, which is what unlocks the next world in the game.
So to beat Super Mario 3D Land’s second world, all you have to do is complete the airship level in world 2 by reaching Boom Boom and defeating him in a boss battle (then getting to the flag as normal). Here’s a video showing how to do this:
That’s all you need to do. Ignore the Star Coins, they’re not relevant until you’ve beaten Bowser in world 8 and are trying to play through the special worlds.
Hopefully that answers your question and you can now progress with Super Mario 3D Land.
