New Super Mario Bros (Wii) - Cheats & Tips
You can find below all the cheats and tips we have available in our database for New Super Mario Bros (Wii)
As in the original Super Mario Bros many long years ago, it is possible to gain 99 lives by going to the end of world 2-3 just before the flag and jumping on the turtle as he comes down the steps, if timed correctly you will continue bouncing on the shell until you have 99 lives.
If you die 8 times on a single level of the game, a big green block with an ! on it will appear, if you hit this block it will turn on guide/autopilot mode and Luigi will appear to complete the level for you. This works all the way up to world 8 but not in world 9.
Double Ground Pound
If two players perform a ground pound in sync you'll wipe out all visible enemies on your screen, exactly like when you throw a POW block in Super Mario Bros. 2. This for obvious reasons is limited to multiplayer.
Spin jump (by shaking the Wii remote) on the dancing flowers to reveal a coin.
Hat's off to Mario
If you use the 99 life cheat once you hit 99 lives and finish that level, Mario will then appear with no hat on both the map screen and in all levels until you lose a life. His hat will then reappear.
Map screen enemies
To avoid confrontation with the enemies on your map screen you can select a star from your inventory and use it to pass the enemies.
Permanent residence in the Mushroom Houses
When you complete the game all the Mushroom houses in the first eight worlds will reappear, if the player then collects all the star coins and goes to every Warp Cannon the houses will appear again, this time for good.
Save on the go
After beating Bowser's Castle in World 8 for the first time, you'll unlock the feature whereby you can 'hard' save at any point in any level that you like, rather than having to use the quick save option.
Taking another players turn in the Red Mushroom house
When in a red mushroom house in a multiplayer game if you perform a ground pound by jumping and pressing down you can steal the other players turn!
Each part of world 9 is unlocked by finding every single star coin in the first 8 worlds, for example finding all of the star coins in world 1 will unlock level 9-1, finding all of the star coins in world 2 will unlock level 9-2 and so on.
