The Information Booth[1] (also parsed as information booth)[2] is a store in Beanbean Castle Town in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its Nintendo 3DS version. The shopkeeper is Miles Tones, who specializes in selling "information" to Mario and Luigi for 100 coins, and this information usually revolves around their current objective and either where it is located or how it can be accomplished. His information only relates to the main story and nothing else. Near the end of the game, when Mario and Luigi are ready to go to Bowser's Castle, the Information Booth has no more information to give. In the Nintendo 3DS version, Miles instead looks at the player's records, awarding items based on their progress with blocks, beans, the number of battles won, the number of enemies defeated, the number of Excellent attacks done and the number of battles fled from. Once Mario and Luigi have fulfilled all requests, Miles leaves the shop, satisfied.

  • 100 Battles Fought: 3 Ultra Mushrooms
