List of hidden blocks in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

From the Super Mario Wiki
Hidden blocks in Beanbean Castle Town house "sparkling".

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, Mario and Luigi can discover Hidden Blocks containing Hoo Beans throughout the Beanbean Kingdom. By jumping around at suspicious platforms or patterns, or in seemingly "empty" dead ends, the Mario Bros. can uncover invisible blocks containing single Hoo Beans. There are 41 Hidden Blocks in the game.

Like in the original, the Mushroom Kingdom, Koopa Cruiser, Stardust Fields, Hoohoo Mountain and Guffawha Ruins do not have any hidden blocks at all.

Even though the placement of almost all the blocks is the same, there are four things that differ from the original game: If the Bros. stand near the place with the hidden blocks for long enough, their location is revealed by sparkling, although this process can be bypassed by the Secret Specs, which are obtained by blending five different drinks at Starbeans Cafe, which if equipped to either bro. will allow the player to see the invisible blocks in the form of a white outline (also how they are presented in this list). These blocks are also counted in the block list feature, which returns from Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. Like with the beanholes, this list is smaller, due to the areas being combined or renamed (Beanbean Outskirts are Beanbean Fields now, Beanbean Castle Town+Beanbean Castle->now simply as Beanbean Castle, Oho Oasis+Oho Ocean Seabed->now simply as Oho Oasis and Teehee Valley+Little Fungitown->now simply as Teehee Valley) and one hidden block in Joke's End was turned into a normal ? Block.

Hidden Block locations[edit]

Beanbean Fields[edit]

Beanbean Fields – 1 Hidden Block
From the eastern entrance to Beanbean Castle Town, the Mario Bros. should head south past the bridge into the next area, then immediately east until they find a long green platform that can be reached by High Jumping up it. Going east into the next area, the Bros. will find the edges of the platform blocked off by a cage, with the block in the middle. M&LSSBM Beanbean Fields Hidden Block.png

Beanbean Castle[edit]

Beanbean Castle – 8 Hidden Blocks
From Beanbean Castle Gate, the Mario Bros. should head west into the next screen with the building housing Warp Pipe. Luigi should hammer Mario from behind to make him small. As Small Mario, he should jump into the hole leading the next maze-like area. In the hedge maze, Mario should then go all the way east into a corner, then move north and follow the path until he approaches three paths going north. By taking the the immediate path, Mario should continue the path until he reaches another passageway into the castle itself. In this dead end room are five Hidden Blocks: two close to the wall and three to the front. M&LSSBM Beanbean Castle Hidden Block 1.png
In the western area of Beanbean Castle Town, the Mario Bros. should enter the house in the southeast. There are three Hidden Blocks in the northwest, southwest and northeastern corners of the rug where a normal ? Block is. These blocks can only be obtained after clearing Chucklehuck Woods and before defeating Popple and Birdo in Teehee Valley, and as a result are not listed in the menu.

As Luigi, from the platform to Little Fungitown, he should head south one screen and immediately to the west to find an elevator that will rise with only one person on it. Taking the elevator and going west, Luigi should continue along the path until he finds a breakable gray block. After shattering it, he should then head east and follow the path until he reaches a dead end. Alternatively, with both brothers, the player should enter Teehee Valley from the Hoohoo Mountain Base. In the first area, the Bros. should High Jump over the platform, and continue east into the next area. There the Bros. should head east, then work their way north and west through the canyons to the next area. In the same area where Luigi shattered the first boulder, the Bros. should take the eastern path and follow it to the dead end. M&LSSBM Teehee Valley Hidden Block 3.png
