Super Mario Odyssey: All 100 Purple Coins Locations | Bowser’s Kingdom

Grab all the purple coins in Bowser’s Kingdom as we reach the penultimate main level of Super Mario Odyssey. There are 100 coins to find in the Japanese Castle-themed fortress, and grabbing them (or a bunch of them, at least) will allow Mario to buy an awesome suit of armor that fits in perfectly with Bowser’s Kingdom.

Most of the coins are located in or around the castle walls. Using the pokey birds, you can climb the white walls or explore the rooftops for extra purple coins. Unlike most levels, there are no purple coins in the secret obstacle course areas, you’ll be able to get them all just exploring the castle. The last few are only available after completing the story missions, so prepare for a return trip.
