Finding all three penguins in Pristine Peaks will earn you one of the most useful items in Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.

Finding all three penguins in Pristine Peaks will earn you one of the most useful items in Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.

When you reach Pristine Peaks, the second world of Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, you might notice some evasive penguins running about. These aren’t just here for the cuteness factor; they’re for a quest entitled “Hide N’ Squeak.” Mario and his Rabbid friends are tasked with tracking down three penguins near the sunken ship in the lake. 

The reward for finishing this quest is the incredibly useful Spark, Regenesis. This unique Spark will greatly boost any teammate’s survivability. Regenesis, as the name implies, gives the hero equipping it Regen. When used in combat, it refills 20% of a Hero’s health for two turns, as well as the character’s Max HP by 15%, and that’s before you start upgrading the Spark. 

Regenesis will come in mighty handy in the long tactical road ahead, so it is well worth knowing where and how to rustle up the second world’s pesky penguins. By following the steps in this guide, you’ll quickly and easily be on the path to adding a serious upgrade to your arsenal.

How to Start Hide N’ Squeak

To start the side quest, you must speak to the Regenesis Spark near the sunken ship in Pristine Peaks. Once you’ve begun the side quest, you can begin collecting the Penguins. 

Penguin 1 Location

The first and closet penguin can be found just North of where the Regenesis Spark is hanging out. To the left of the bridge, you’ll see a block of ice that you can destroy using your Wave Power ability on the ZR button. 

Pick up the penguin with the A button and then take it back to the lake. Face the boat, and press A to throw the penguin in. 

Penguin 2 Location

Cross the bridge near where you found Penguin 1. Keep going past the merchant until you are at the open ice cave. Do not go into the cave. Instead, look to your left, and you’ll see a sparkling tree where the second Penguin is perched. Now you know where to go to knock him down from his hiding place. 

Once you have the second penguin in hand, turn back to the lake (it should be a pretty short run from your location), and throw the second penguin onto the boat. 

Penguin 3 Location

This one is the furthest and trickiest to get to, by far. First, go to the merchant and then hug the path around the lake to the right. Go down the hill, either fighting or running past the enemies, and enter the pipe at the bottom on your left.

From here, smash a stone wall obstacle using your Wave Power. This will allow you to cross a gap and use the pipe on the other side to reach the area where the final penguin resides.

This area is full of pipes that only the penguin can access. It will juke you out, so stay on your toes to outmaneuver the little bugger. After capturing the penguin, jump down with the Penguin in your hands. Turn to the left, and toss it in the boat with ease. 

To unlock Regenesis, complete a battle after retrieving all three penguins. Head down to the bottom of the lake to complete “Top of the Lake,” where you’ll be required to defeat three Darkmess Eyes in one encounter. After, you’ll have completed “Hide N’ Squeak.”

And that’s it for the penguin locations. For any more Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope tips and tricks, head on over to our dedicated guides page for the title.
