New Super Mario Bros.


Are there any other unlockable characters besides Luigi? On the touchscreen in my instruction booklet, it shows the worlds but on the actual touchscreen the worlds look different. Why is this?

Games Guru: Unfortunately, Luigi is the only unlockable character in the game. Regarding the difference between the booklet and the actual touchscreen worlds, sometimes the people who make the booklet get an earlier version of the game design document. They should have gotten one that looks like the real thing. But sometimes when deadlines are tight, some things fall through the cracks.

Are there any cheats or hidden characters?

Games Guru: I have not tried this myself, but as I understand it, if you press and hold the L and R shoulder buttons down and choose one of your saved game files on the select file screen, you can play as Luigi.

    That game was way to easy, they need to remake the original mario bro games for further action.

    i beat the game, it was really easy. a good cheat (w/out action replay) is jump on the flag, then press up, down, left, right, a, b, and sometimes if you do it really fast, the castle explodes and bowser comes and gives you princess peach so you can beat the game and only completed world 1-1!! ps you have to jump high enough so you get at least 800pts.

  18. mario pokemon master says:

    hey guys ive got a cheat. when you are in the main big map press start and then press left right left right xx yy and you unlock chalange mode (ps im writing thid from my dsi ^^ :) :P

  19. cheat master says:

    unlock World 4 and World 7 and then play through them as Luigi.

    Inifinte 1UPs
    At the pipe right at the end of World 1-4, kick a koopa shell and it’ll keep sliding back and forth between the pipe to the right and the wall to the left. If you jump every time the shell comes your way, the shell will kill the enemies that constantly appear, eventually giving you you 1UPs.

    p.s. i don’t know what the frist one is supsed to do.
    i am not sher if the second one werks

    special note:mario and luigi are’nt just ordinary plumbers that save princesses on a daily basis, they’re gymnasts!(dash and jump,as soon as you hit the ground,jump again.Repeat the process again to execute the deadly triple jump!)
