Lakeside Cat Shines Guide – 3D World + Bowser’s Fury Walkthrough

Our Lakeside Cat Shines guide details all 20 Cat Shines in the Lakeside area in our Bowser’s Fury walkthrough.

Like the three other main areas in Lake Lapcat, the Lakeside area has a total of 20 Cat Shines to find and collect split between four islands. Each of these islands have five Cat Shines each. The area also has the Lakeside Giga Bell that’s used to smack Fury Bowser around once he awakens. The amount needed to unlock the massive power-up changes each time you defeat Bowser starting at 5 Cat Shines and moving up to 15, 20, 40, and finally 50.

The Lakeside area is unlocked at the start of your adventure. Take note, some Cat Shines won’t appear until a specific Cat Shine is collected first. You’ll have to enter another island for the other island to refresh. Need a Cat Shine from a different area? Use the links below to jump to each section!
