Super Mario 64: How to Save your Game (3D All Stars)

Now, it is important to note that there is no auto-save feature in the game. Instead, the method is old school where you have to choose the option to save in a pop up.

Basically, when you find a star, you will see a pop up where there will be multiple options shown on the screen. They are as follows:

  • Save and Continue
  • Save and Quit
  • Continue and Don’t Save

Based on your requirements at that point of time, you can choose the desired option. Saving the game is what I choose to do every time because I can play without worries after that.

If you want to manually save whenever you want, you cannot do it, sadly. So, you need to make some wise decisions regarding when to stop playing for the day. If you have collected a star and want to finish playing, pick the Save and Quit option.
