Versus Mode (SM64DS)
Through the wireless connection, up to 4 players can compete in battles to earn the most stars, using whatever abilities are available to them. Players can lose stars if hit, which can then be stolen by other players. All 4 player controlled characters from the main game are available for use here. The stages open for play are as follows:
A revised version of the castle grounds in front of the castle. There are a few differences between this version and the one in the main game. Naturally the doors are barred out, for preventing access to the castle. The cannon is locked out, a moving platform has been added over to the lake and a loose Chain Chomp is bouncing around with one of the stars at the end of its chain.
A revised version of the mini-stage found in the main game in the Rec Room. There are no enemies in this stage and a yellow box contains a feather. Players can use this to fly regardless of character, as opposed to the Mario only restriction in the main game.
Princess's Secret Slide
A revised version of the mini-stage found in the main game in the Character Selection Room. Stars here are not locked in transparent boxes, and the whole stage works as a race to see who can reach the already present stars first. The only penalty for falling off the stage is being returned to the beginning of the slide.
A revised version of the mini-stage found in the main game in the Boo's courtyard at the back of the castle. The only hazard that has remained is the black rolling balls, which will cause a player to drop a star if they touch one, but only Wario can break them. The rest of the stage consists of various walkways, a grid and a pole. This stage also has yellow boxes containing feathers.
