A Switch Block in Super Mario 3D World

Switch Blocks[1] are a type of block similar in appearance to ! Blocks from previous games, appearing in Super Mario 3D World. Similar to the ON/OFF Switches in Super Mario World, Switch Blocks, when hit, usually change the direction of Switchboard tracks in stages they appear in. Switch Blocks appear in three stages: Switchboard Falls, Cosmic Cannon Cluster, and Honeycomb Starway. The one in Honeycomb Starway reveals a platform when hit.
