How to fast travel in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

There are multiple methods of fast traveling in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom depending on what section of the map you’re in.

Hyrule: Shrines and Skyview Towers

As you work your way through the game, you’ll soon find that any shrines and Skyview Towers that you visit can become fast travel points. Simply open your map via the Purah Pad and select your desired location, then hit Travel to be instantly transported to that shrine or tower.

When exploring the deep underground Chasm, you’ll discover glowing Lightroots, which you can interact with to create a fast travel point. As with locations in Hyrule, you’ll be able to open your map via the Purah Pad and select a Lightroot of your choosing, then hit Travel to teleport there.

Travel Medallions

You can eventually earn up to three Travel Medallions by completing quests for an NPC named Robbie – and it’s well worth the effort. These medallions can be placed anywhere on the map to act as your very own fast travel points, allowing you to strategically decide on a few spots you’d like to go back to at any time. Even better, you can pick them up and move them somewhere else whenever you’d like.

How to get infinite lives in Super Mario Bros. Wonder
Mario turning into Super Mario.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder is a thrilling adventure for everyone's favorite plumber, but while there's plenty to do in this wondrous outing, most players should find that the game's difficulty level isn't too stressful overall. Nevertheless, getting a Game Over means losing some of your hard-earned flower coins, so you might still want to stock up on extra lives just to be safe. Of course, you can earn 1-ups by collecting 100 golden coins or buying them from Poplin Shops using your flower coins, but we've also got a cool infinite lives exploit you can use early in the game to make things even easier. Read on for how to get infinite lives in Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
How to get infinite lives
You can access the infinite lives exploit very early in the game by visiting the third level of Pipe-Rock Plateau called "Scram, Skedaddlers!" Do note, however, that the exploit will only work if you're using the Parachute Cap badge while using Yoshi, so make sure to equip the badge and swap your character to any of the four unique Yoshi options before entering the level.

A little way into the level, you'll encounter a Skedaddler in a tree holding a large purple coin hostage. As you approach him, he'll begin running away from you, so chase after him across the musical notes until you reach a point where he gets hung up on some honeycombs. Allow the Skedaddler to fire his acorns to break the honeycombs to his left, clearing a space where you can stand across from him.
