One of Mario’s best 3D adventures is Super Mario 64, in which the goal is to get enough stars to go through the different rooms of Princess Peach’s castle.
In total there are 120 hidden everywhere and in this guide, we are going to tell you how to get Mario’s flying cap and its respective secret star.
How to get the flying cap and its secret star
In the various adventures of Mario we have seen that he is capable of adopting various transformations depending on the objects he obtains.
In Super Mario 64 he is no exception and that is something he achieves thanks to the secret caps, among which is the flying cap with which, as his name suggests, Mario will be able to fly for the stage.
To unlock it, you must have previously obtained a minimum of 10 stars. Once you have them you have to go to the main hall of the castle, where you will see that a beam of light has appeared that illuminates a large part of the room.
If you place yourself on it and look up with the manual camera you will be transported to the secret level where this special cap is.
In this place, there are eight red coins scattered in the air that you must collect to get one of the 15 secret stars in the game.
To do this, you just have to follow the row of coins in the sky, very carefully, but without stopping too much, since the use of the cap has a time limit and if it runs out you will run the risk of falling into the void.
Once you get the eight red coins you will see that a star appears in the central tower of the stage.
Right there will be a giant red switch that once you press it, it will activate all the red blocks of the adventure, in order to fly with Mario through the places where you find them.
