This page is dedicated to the first episode of Pinna Park. You’ll unlock Pinna Park when you’ve collected 10 Shine Sprites.

Chase Shadow Mario

When you arrive in Pinna Park, you’ll need to firstly run up through the gate and begin chasing Shadow Mario. When you both reach the shallow swimming pool, you’ll trigger a cutscene in which Shadow Mario will activate a giant Mecha-Bowser.

Shadow Mario will spawn in a spooky Mecha-Bowser!

Fighting Mecha Bowser

In this fight, you’ll be riding on the Pinna Park rollercoaster. Your aim is to shoot rockets at Mecha-Bowser’s head to damage him. As you go around the coaster, FLUDD will automatically pick up any rocket missiles on the track and you can then shoot them using ZR, which you can aim using the Left Analog Stick.

You’ll need to shoot Mecha-Bowser four times to defeat him for good, but during this fight he will also shoot fire and Bullet Bills at you. When you’re in direct line of the fire, you can use your water nozzle to put out the flames, and when the Bullet Bills are closing in, you can also spray them with water to defeat them.

Once you’ve defeated Mecha-Bowser and witnessed a short cutscene, you can pick up the Shine Sprite in the shallow pool.
