It’s not uncommon for certain tasks in older games to trip up newcomers, and those checking out Super Mario Sunshine via the Super Mario 3D All Stars collection are likely encountering just such an issue. That’s why we’re here to help with a guide on how to get on top of the Shine Gate in Super Mario Sunshine.
How to Get on Top of the Shine Gate in Super Mario Sunshine
To get on top of the Shine Gate in Super Mario Sunshine, you’ll first need to have obtained the Rocket Nozzle for your FLUDD.
This is obtained by collecting 30 Shine Sprites and then completing a request to chase down Shadow Mario.
The game will automatically guide you toward Shadow Mario after you nab 30 Shine Sprites, so focus on completing levels and you should get the request before long. Shadow Mario will then drop the Rocket Nozzle once you catch him.
With the Nozzle in your possession, head toward the Shine Gate. Once there, you can use the new item to boost your jump with a jet of water, allowing you to reach the top of the Gate with ease.
Once there, you can clean the monument off to reveal a secret Shine Sprite, which you can then add to your collection.
That’s all there is to it really. It can be a challenge to figure out at first, but once you do, it’s a quick and easy way to increase your total Shine Sprites while also showing you what you can accomplish with a new piece of gear.
Hopefully this cleared up how to get on top of the Shine Gate in Super Mario Sunshine. For more on the game and the other titles included in the 3D All Stars collection, consider reading our review to see whether the classic titles still hold up against modern standards.
