Super Mario 64 is back in the spotlight again thanks to the limited release, Super Mario 3D All Stars. The 3D All Stars version of the game is based on the original Nintendo 64 release of Super Mario 64, and thus does away with some of the extra content that was featured in the DS version of the game. If you’re here, you’re probably wondering what the deal is with Yoshi in Super Mario 64 and whether you can still find them on the top of the Castle. Here’s everything you need to know.
Yoshi in Super Mario 64 & 3D All Stars
So let’s get a couple things straight first. Yoshi is not playable in this version of Super Mario 64. Yes Yoshi appeared in the DS version, but the DS version this is not; our green reptilian friend will need to sit on the sidelines for this adventure.
That said, unlike Luigi and Wario who are banned from the proceedings in 3D All Stars, Yoshi does appear in Super Mario 64 just as they did in the original game.
How do you see Yoshi then? Well it’s the same process as in the Nintendo 64 version.
First, you need to collect all 120 stars. This not an easy task and it may take you quite a bit to do, especially if this is your first time playing Super Mario 64 and you’re not familiar with how to collect every star in each world and the castle secret stars.
After you’ve done that a cannon will appear in the castle courtyard after beating the game. You can fire yourself out of the cannon up to the castle’s roof and you’ll be able to visit and have a quick chat with our ol’ pal Yoshi as an Easter egg to fans of Super Mario World where Yoshi made its debut.
How to Get to Yoshi on Top of Castle in Super Mario 64:
- Collect all 120 Stars and beat the game.
- Return to castle courtyard and use the newly opened cannon to fire yourself up to the top of the castle.
- Say hi to Yoshi who will be waiting for you on the roof of the castle.
That’s all you need to know about how to get and see Yoshi in Super Mario 64 in 3D All Stars. Unfortunately there isn’t too much else to it but hey, at least Yoshi still made it.
