Give Mario and friends a boost with these new and returning power-ups!
Play with Yoshi
Several varieties of Yoshis make their home in certain corners of the Mushroom Kingdom. Their powers will really help you out in a bind.
Grab one of these wondrous little nuts and you'll get the Flying Squirrel transformation. Flying Squirrel Mario can glide for a good distance by holding down the 2 Button. You can shake your controller to do a double jump, or grab onto a wall and stick there for a quick breather.
Mario gets a little size boost and the ability to withstand one attack from an oncoming baddie when he finds one of these iconic mushrooms. He can also bust blocks when he's bigger.
Strong and hearty, you'll find Fire Flowers growing in every corner of the Mushroom Kingdom. These red hot flowers grant you the ability to throw fireballs at your enemies.
This power-packed power-up lets you toss ice balls to freeze enemies in their tracks. Then you can pick up and toss the ice blocks containing their frozen bodies across some surfaces. Geez, sounds brutal!
Get a Super Star and you'll be completely invulnerable to enemy attacks, plus your running speed will increase dramatically. Use these super powers to zoom through levels with ease!
This mushroom turns Mario so mini that he can squeeze into tiny warp pipes, and run quickly across the water. Now, with a running start, he can even dash straight up walls!
Hitch a ride with Yoshi and he'll take you through tough levels with ease, chomping on fruit and enemies along the way. He can also use those strong hind legs to kick the air and give you a little extra aerial distance.
Balloon Baby Yoshi
Give this Yoshi a shake and he fills up with lots of hot air, ballooning in size and lifting you off the ground. You can shake him a few times and float for awhile before coming back to the ground.
Bubble Baby Yoshi
While holding on to this little one you can make him belch bubbles all over the place. Enemies trapped in the bubbles will drop coins, and you can hop onto the bubbes to reach high places.
Glowing Baby Yoshi
You'll most likely find this Baby Yoshi in dark underground caverns. He emits a brilliant glow when shaken, and is a huge help for cave spelunking adventurers.
