Super Mario 3D All Stars brings three classic Mario favorites to the Switch. One of these games is Super Mario Galaxy. One of the main mechanics in this game involves collecting and using Star Bits, and you’ll need a lot of them if you hope to get every Power Star in the game. If you’re not sure what Star Bits are or how to get them, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to get Star Bits quickly and what they do in Super Mario Galaxy.
What Star Bits Do in Super Mario Galaxy
Star Bits are a type of collectible in Super Mario Galaxy. They are tiny shining stars in each of the galaxies that come in a variety of colors (blue, green, purple, red, white, and yellow). They have several uses in the game.
One use is that collecting 50 of them grants Mario an extra life. This can be very useful to have when you get to challenging stages.
The second use is that they can be used to stun enemies. Aiming at an enemy with the blue Star Cursor and pressing ZR will shoot Bits and stun the foe. This allows Mario a chance to hit and defeat it without jumping on it.
The third use is that Star Bits can be fed to hungry Lumas to form a new galaxy. Every once in a while, the game will tell you that a new hungry Luma has appeared. You can find that Luma on your hub world map and feed it however many Star Bits it is asking for in order it to transform into a galaxy.
This is important because there are Power Stars on these new galaxies, so if you’re trying to get every single Power Star, you’ll need to feed all of the hungry Lumas. Some Lumas are very hungry and require a lot of Bits, so you’ll need to collect thousands over the course of the game.
