Default Off-track levels in NSMB2

40 hours into NSMB2, and I'm still scratching my head at how to access some of the off-track levels. Am I the only who doesn't get it?

This is what I'm talking about:











I love exploring the levels and that's why, I think, the game is more fun than 3D Land, but I can't come up with anything. If anyone can share hints, it would be cool.

I found most secret exits in the ghost houses. one of them also happens to be easier to find than the regular exit. i think it's the one in world 6.

Yeah, once you beat the main game, you can just press L + R when selecting your save file and boom, Luigi time.

What he says is true. Notice how most of those levels are next to Ghost Houses? Almost every single Ghost House has an alternate exit (and they made them pretty tricky to find). A couple of regular levels also have hidden exits too, so don't discount them.

Just keep your eyes open in the Ghost Houses for anything out of the ordinary. I also know one of the levels requires you to hit a hidden block to get to the secret exit.

Most of them are the secret exits from the Boo Houses. You can try finding them on your own or look at the Gamexplain videos.

Yeah actually I tried the ghost house on World 6, as advised by Darkrai, and found the secret exit for that one. Seriously, cool game. I feel like 3D Land was a bit lacking in secrets.

I am also still looking for all the secrets and getting all the coins.


There is a part I need 90 coins to unlock... but if I spend so many coins there will I still have coins to unlock all of the offtrack levels?

There is more than enough Star Coins in the game to unlock all the levels. You just gotta go back and collect more of them.

Also, dont use Star Coins to get items or lives...There are way easier ways to get those things. You need to savor those Star Coins for future areas/paths

There's enough Star Coins in the game to get everything, so there's really no problem in using them, as long as you're up to getting every Star Coin.
