3.3 million units sold. Congratulations!!

Now I’ve just managed to complete All Star Coins in the main campaign. But nothing happens. No reward? No ending? I’ve got them all, every level, every Star Coin. All I got was a pop-up message. Is that it?

EDIT: I’ve only got 4 gold stars on my save file. Got 93 MARIO flags and all the white flags on my save file, so I’m missing something.

You're missing a secret exit flag pole for 94 exits. You also have to catch Nabbit once in every world if you haven't.

And no you don't really get anything besides the message and unlimited toad house access (I guess the secret island which is just personal records).

I knew it had to be something to do with catching Nabbit.

Damn if I’m missing a secret exit then it’s gonna be so hard finding out which individual level it is without playing through them all again. Unless I study the map for an imperfection.

Okay!!

I got my 94 Flag save file and 5 Gold Stars on my save!! I had to look at a complete map and compare it to mine to find the level that had my last secret exit. I'm happy about that!!

Now, onto New Super Luigi U, I've never played that before. Anybody done an All Star Coin run on that yet?

Yeah. Star coins honestly don't feel too much harder than the main game since individual stages are a lot shorter. If you've been keeping up with how they design their hiding places then it should be easy to get a hang of where they are considering there's less real estate to work with.

There are a very few cases where you'll need to make a leap of faith or need a squirrel suit to reach a coin, but that's balanced by a fair few number of coins that they hand out like candy, especially near the end of stages. There's only one coin that comes to mind that I recall really not being able to figure out, but to be fair it was signposted with blocks/coins in a pattern being present or not.

Thanks for the info. Yes I did notice the shorter levels and so far all of the Star Coins are in plain sight. Are there as many secret exits compared to the standard game?

All of the secret exits happen in the "same" levels as they did on the original map, so that should cut out some of the guess work. Also that star coin I mentioned being hard to find earlier may have been a secret exit thinking back, haha.

I’m playing through New Super Luigi U now and I’ve noticed the 8-bit pixel Luigi art that is found on some levels. On one level the art is placed next to a pipe that leads you to a Star Coin.

Does the each placement of pixel Luigi art indicate that a secret is there?
