His minions guard the keys, so you’ll need to fight them.

The rank section shows team rankings. The five teams are led by Mario, Peach, Daisy, Luigi, and Toad. As of now, no team has any points, of course (although we resent Toad being automatically listed at the bottom).

Super Nintendo World Pass Member previews will begin on January 29. The land will then open to the public on February 17.
