I’m saving up for a 9999 coin item in the shop (post-game content) so I need a lot of coins. Outside of the few vault chambers associated with a few power moons, are there any dense locations for farming coins?
With the release of v1.2.0, Luigi’s Balloon World is now the best way to collect coins.
Luigi’s Balloon World is a minigame added in an update on February 21, 2018 and is unlocked after defeating Bowser.
Talk to Luigi on any stage to view a list of balloons hidden by other players. You can earn money multiple ways:
- Finding balloons hidden by other players.
- Having other players fail to find a balloon you hid
- Getting a streak by finding multiple balloons without failing
- Ranking up by completing challenges
I can’t say for sure whether this method is faster than the bonus area in Bowser’s Castle, but it is certainly a more fun and less repetitive way to earn money,
