While Super Mario 3D World is most definitely a good time, those of you who have already experienced the game on Wii U will be most interested in the excellent Bowser's Fury expansion, which offers an open-world setting with Cat Shines to collect.

In this guide, we'll be showing you all of the Cat Shine locations in Bowser's Fury.

Slipstake Slope Shine Locations

Slipstake Slope Shine "Make The Lighthouse Shine"

Make your way to the island which sits below the rather daunting Slipstake Slope, and take the pipe which will fire you onto the slope. The objective here is to slide down to the bottom, where you'll find the Cat Shine and the lighthouse. You can use the ice skates to do this, but be careful of the enemies and spikes.

Slipstake Slope Shine "Blue Coin Bustle"

Go back to the pipe to return to the very start of Slipskate Slope. You'll notice that a blue button has appeared, which triggers another time-limited event involving blue coins. These appear in three sets, and you'll need to use the ice skate to get them all. Protip – don't hold down the 'dash' button when you're in the ice skate, as it makes it harder to grab all of the coins successfully.

Slipstake Slope Shine "Key To The Cat Shine"

Leave the area and return, get in the pipe fire yourself up to the start of the level. You'll find a Cat Shine sitting in a cage. The key is located at the bottom of the slope (of course!) next to the lighthouse. You'll need to carry it back up the slope using the thin ledge on the right-hand side of the structure. This requires a bit of old-school 2D platforming skills, too. Once you're close to the top, use the ledges on either side of the spikes to avoid taking damage.

Slipstake Slope Shine "Five Cat Shine Shards"

As you slide down the slope to collect the first Cat Shine, you'll almost certainly pick up some Cat Shine Shards along the way. The first is found before you even start your descent, sitting atop some Cat Goombas.

The others are obtainable as you slide down, but you might need several runs before you get them all. If you miss one, simply hop on Plessie and return to the pipe for another attempt.

Slipstake Slope Shine "Blast The Fury Blocks"

Run down to the Giga Bell beyond the lighthouse, but before you reach it, turn around and you'll spot some Bowser Blocks. As before, wait for Fury Bowser to appear and he'll destroy them, granting access to the Cat Shine hidden within.

That's Slipstake Slope done and dusted. Let's head onto Clawswipe Colosseum!
