He skids a bit more (faster/more momentum?) and jumps higher (Luigi can triple jump), but the biggest difference that I've noticed though is that he wears green and that he is Mario's brother. "Tanooki Luigi" wears a Kitsune suit.

It looks like the voice actor for Toad has changed over time. From this Wiki: Toad's voice was originally portrayed by Tomoko Maruno for the Japanese version of Mario Kart 64 (and later the first three Mario Party titles) and Isaac Marshall for the overseas version. Eventually, Jen Taylor, and then Kelsey Hutchinson, played Toad's voice for many ...

There are 285 Star Coins in the normal levels and 50 Star Coins in the bonus levels. However, since StreetPassing with other players allows you to "reset" mystery boxes, letting you collect their Star Coins again, potentially there's an infinite amount of Star Coins, however you can only accumulate up to 999 star coins In any case, you'll need only 290 ...

Apparently it's the same as in Galaxy - he jumps a bit higher/further, but he has poorer traction. A minor graphical difference, but his Tanooki Suit supposedly also looks a bit more like a Kitsune.

You need to hit it with your Tanooki's suit tail and it will lift the platform it's on.

He jumps a bit higher and skids a bit farther. he can also run faster. He can also triple-jump.

Unfortunately, Super Mario 3D Land does not support any more than 3 save slots. The SD card does hold save data for many games, but you cannot add to save slots or anything like that.

The White Tanooki suit gives Mario the powers of the Tanooki suit plus invincibility for the whole level.

When you look through them you are generally supposed to be looking for a toad, the toad will then throw a 1up or a star coin down for you. I think they were just added to take advantage of the gyroscope controls the 3DS has built in.

Neither of the Assist Blocks appear in the Special Worlds.

The only method to kill fuzzies is to run into them while invincible due to the effects of a star.

To get StreetPass data, you just have to have the StreetPass feature turned on for the game. You can have up to 12 games turned on for receiving StreetPass data at one time. You don't need the system on, or the cartridge for that game in the system. If you want to send StreetPass data to another game, you'll need that game in your 3DS. Therefore, ...

According to the Super Mario Wiki, these are the five requirements for each save file star: Beat all the levels in the first eight worlds.While not necessary, the player must also not use the Invincibility Leaf nor the P-Wing on all levels for glittering stars. Beat Bowser on World 8-Castle 2. Clear Special 8, then beat Bowser again in World 8-...

It's simply another level. Once you spend the coins, it will unlock, and you can play through it just like any other level. It's better to thing of these levels as having a "minimum" coin requirement, rather than a coin cost, as you keep your coins after unlocking them. Eventually, the castle levels start requiring coins to unlock, which means you are ...

If you have already completed the level once, and go back and try to complete the level again, the Invincibilty Leaf (the item that gives you the white Tanooki suit) will not appear anymore, no matter how many times you die. The same goes for P-Wings - if you have already completed a level once, then you will not get to use the P-Wing in that level.

The main story part of the game concludes when you clear the final castle in world 8. It doesn't matter how many levels you go through to get there. That said however, you might want to go through the optional levels just for the Star Coins they have. There are three castles that require certain amounts of Star Coins: one needs 50 while the last two need 90 ...

My understanding is you're immune from the point at which you see the credits roll for the first time. All of the bonus content is much harder, and in those stages, five or more deaths ceases to trigger the game's assist features. I've 100% completed the game with glowy stars intact, by the way. My worst playthrough of a level after the main game was around ...

Getting them all is one of 5 things you can do to get a "star" on your save file in the main menu. The others are:

Well for starters, I would usually go look for the little nooks and crannies in a level, such as a wall which may have bricks you can break with a tanooki suit or by crouching under small holes that lead to rooms(Usually they are 1Ups but they can be paths to coins). Next EXPLORE as i would climb the walls of levels and follow the paths until something ...

I believe that is the zelda room, you'll need to have the fire flower and light up the torches in the room. There is a fire flower in the very first room between the "!" question mark boxes. [?] [?] [?] X <--there's some fire power. [?] Hope that helps.. the formatting for posting that picture is a little off but you get the idea if your looking at ...

The propeller starts either by jumping and holding the jump button (A or B) or pressing the jump button for the second time after jumping and holding it, so the ideal height will be achieved either by using the first method or by using the second at the top of your jump, either way, once you start ascending, you'll need to hold the button as long as ...

No. The only purpose of regular coins is to get extra lives.

A short while after the level's checkpoint, you'll come across a water jet while riding a green platform. The star coin is just above that jet, you have to try and stop the platform above the jet and jump for the coin when the platform's raised.

From what I know it will only show the face of the rival for that particular level. the game itself does not have any official place to track world wide records. even though you can see from the numbers the one that has the best time is in gold and is shown first when you stand on that level spot on the overworld map. I looked around for any record ...

There are apparently 35 distinct mystery box rooms, 20 regular mystery boxes with 1 coin each and 15 gold mystery boxes with 2 coins each for a total of 50 star coins from mystery boxes. More than the single-player maximum star coins of 335 can be earned through StreetPass mystery boxes which are duplicates of those 35 rooms. To see all variations, you need ...

You can farm up to 999 star coins. Purple boxes respawn on their own every day or so, but you might get a box you've already cleared. I think the better option for getting star coins are the levels themselves. You can get up to 285 coins from the 16 worlds and special worlds, and you need 290 coins to unlock the final castle, so the minimum number of ...

I agree with Toomai's answer, and would like to add my own, it's past the scope of the main game, though, so I'll tag it as a spoiler

The only way I've gotten them to respawn is when I street pass with someone who doesn't own the game. When I street pass with a random person who hasn't played Super Mario 3D Land, I'll get a mushroom house instead of a new purple box room. Other then that I haven't seen them randomly respawn on their own.
