ESRB Rating: Everyone 10+ with Mild Cartoon Violence

Here are four fantastic tips on how to collect in-game items—and where to find them.


Stamps & Music


Some of the coolest collectibles in the game can be found at the Item Stand. These in-game shops are located across the street from the main beach area of Rio City. You can use coins or rings you may have earned throughout the game to get prizes like Miiverse stamps and music. There are three different Item Stands (including one that’s Mario themed and one that’s Sonic themed), and they appear in the game one by one. But by the end of the game, players will be able to see all three Item Stands near the in-game beach.


Mii Wear


You can also try to collect gear for your Mii character at the Prize Booth! Equipping your Mii with these stat-boosting items can help give your Mii a competitive edge in events and tournaments. Plus, the collectible Mii Wear is super stylish (and sometimes, super silly!). Players can try to collect different types of outfits throughout the game, like Olympic, Mario, and Sonic.


Facts & Flags


If you want to take a quick break from the competition, you can head over to Copacabana Beach for a chance to meet Mii characters from around the world. If you talk to a visiting Mii character, they’ll offer you interesting facts about their home country, as well as their country’s flag! It’s a great way to learn more about people and places from around the globe. 


Pop-up Tips


You can try to collect in-game tips that may help improve your performance in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. These hints pop up on the screen when you complete a certain part of the tournament, and you might find some of them very helpful—especially if you’re trying to work your way up the podium!
