Where to get the Gameboy (Beetlemania)

Head towards Mushroom Kingdom and enter the Inn. The Beetlemania Toad will be inside playing with the Game Boy.

Once inside, go behind the counter and make your way to the far right side of the room where the Beetlemania Toad will be playing. When you first interact with him, He will tell you to wait after he finishes his game. You need to talk to him a number of times for the game to be finished.

After speaking with him for about 4 times, he sells you the game boy for 500 gold coins. He will then ask you if you need instructions and we suggest you answer “yes” since the tutorial cutscene from your inventory has a funny animation.

How to play the Beetlemania mini-game

To play the mini-game, bring up your menu by tapping the X button. You will have an additional “game” tab from your menu list and you can access the game by selecting it from here. The image above shows the tutorial animation and the gameplay.

You can move the beetle from left to right of the screen by using the directional pad on your controller. Tapping the A, B or Y button will make the beetle shoot and the objective of the game is to shoot as much Koopa shells as you can before getting hit.

*One thing to note about the Beetlemania mini-game is that it does not offer any reward in-game when you pass a high score. Getting a high score gives you more chances to revive in the mini-game after getting hit.

How to Change Beetlemania Screen

Another secret that you can do is change the Beetlemania screen. The screen display is based on what character is slotted in the middle party slot. To do this, Use the switch command and swap any characters into the middle slot to change the display screen.
