See some of Super Mario 3D Land’s greatest secrets in these new videos

If you’re a 3DS owner, odds are good that you played the crap out of Super Mario 3D Land, perhaps getting all the Star Coins, unlocking all the secret stages, and beating Bowser all over the 3D land. But are you sure you’ve found every secret and completed every level as fast as possible? Even though we beat every stage three times and found our share of hidden treats, these videos released by Nintendo shocked us with all the secrets and tricks on display. Watch the below vids and you might just learn something too:

As long as we’re talking about secrets, did you guys see our video of the Legend of Zelda Easter egg in the game? If you haven't done it yet, it's a must.

    I am happy I managed to do that 3-1 Wall climb thing on my first try without actually ever bothering to complete the level and I did find a couple of those infinite 1 up places, but this is impressive. I also knew about Statue Mario, but I didn't know he could break rolling spikes and flamethrowers.

    Oh, and I found the 1-2 warp pipe. Still, that's a lot of stuff I missed and I cannot see myself doing most (if not all) of those speed runs.

    the only thing impressive from these vids that I knew about was the wall climbing in 3-1 and man the statue is OP O__O

    Man the only thing I knew about was the 1-ups you could get on the boomerang mini boss... But that tidbit is nothing compared to what Nintendo just demonstrated. (Kneels before) Nintendo I resign my position of Hardcore Mario Player to you...

    It is easier to find these things when you are the one putting them in the game.

    I unintentionally found that 1-up on 6-1. It was pretty satisfying.

    Heh, its things like these that always builds replayability to core Mario games.
