Top Ten Worlds in the New Super Mario Bros. Series

darthvadern
New Super Mario Bros U. Deluxe is on January 11th 2019 released on the Nintendo Switch and it's one of the games people are looking least forwad to on the console. However, I do think the series, New Super Mario Bros. has a few good things about it still, like the levels for the most part, in the worlds. Here are the best worlds in these games. Without further ado, let's start!

The Top Ten

1 Soda Jungle (New Super Mario Bros. U) Soda Jungle (New Super Mario Bros. U)

Soda Jungle is by far the best world on New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. It's the most creative world by far, and features Iggy, who has that insane fight in which he travels through pipes which allow him to travel onto the ceiling. The scenery is amazing, and I truly love the level design. All good things do have cons, however. It is so easy to get to Soda Jungle. For example, completing the secret levels in Acorn Plains and Layer-Cake Desert both unlock skips to Soda Jungle, and I feel skipping two of the best worlds (Frosted Glacier and Sparkling Waters.) Other then that, I really love Soda Jungle! - Mario_Deluxe

I liked it except for the dark forest part. Mostly because the Boos will spawn in any given place and it gets on my nerves. Other than that, the levels are fairly decent. - Spicygarlic

Soda Jungle is defintely my favourite world in both the game and in the series in the general! I love the amount of creativity in this world and the levels are almost all great! So jungle worlds are usually my favourite worlds in the games, and it's no suprise here. However, what makes this one so muh greater than it aleady was, is the second half. You are suddenly in this spooky area in the forest, were you must find a way out, and the levels there are awesome! One of them which is awater level in a cave isn't too mind-blowing, but the other one is a beautiful swamp level with gorgeous background and tiles based on Vincent Van Gogh's paintings! It's beautiful! The rest of the world is quite cool too, as it's a jungle world. Easly one of my favourites - darthvadern

2 World 8 (New Super Mario Bros.) World 8 (New Super Mario Bros.)

The original New Super Mario Bros. game on the DS is certainly the most original of the bunch, and it shows seeing as the level design is usually great and same for worlds, and the final world is my favourite. It's the biggest and most high-quality world in the game and all levels were great, and certainly unique! At one point you wil be in a spooky valley with spiders frmo the ceiling, and another moment you must travel vertically in a volcano because lava is rising, and then you must dodge meteors, and it goes on and on. I mean this is easly my favourite world in the game, and the only one I truly love from that game - darthvadern

World 8 is pretty fun. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

Agree! - MaxPap

3 Peach's Castle (New Super Mario Bros. U) Peach's Castle (New Super Mario Bros. U)

While Peach's Castle on New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe may not be the best world, it has an insane final boss battle against Bowser. The scenery is awesome, and the fact her castle was once a happy place full of wildlife has now turned into a castle surrounded by lava and steep bridges truly shows how much Bowser changed it. Some cons, though, is that the world is short, and that's kind of lame considering I would have loved an actual world rather then an excuse to have the final boss battle. Overall, great world! - Mario_Deluxe

While World 8 from the DS version is my favourite, this one is certainly one of the most unique. Unlike the other games, in this game, Bowser transforms Peach's Castle into a lava world instead, and it's just so creative! I mean there's the lava moat, and you actually must venture in the castle! It's just so cool - darthvadern

4 Acorn Plains (New Super Mario Bros. U) Acorn Plains (New Super Mario Bros. U)

Acorn Plains is definitely one of the better worlds in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. When you first play it, it's pretty obviously an introduction to some mechanics you'll be using along the way, like Yoshi, fighting Boom Boom, an awesome castle featuring a boss fight, yadda yadda. It's really weird coming back to Acorn Plains after fighting Bowser or Ludwig and seeing how easy it was. While it may be one of the boring worlds, it truly follows the criteria of a very nice introduction world. - Mario_Deluxe

What? A "first world in game" on the list? Yeah, and the only one as well. The first three "first world in the game" in the previous three games were very basic honestly. The DS version is cool and all, but nah. The 3DS version is just rehash, and the Wii version is iconic but it still feels basic, and one thing they share is that they all take place near Peach's Castle. Not the case with the Wii U version. This is Acorn Plains, the area in game most far away from Peach's Castle and is a forest filled with acorns and and mountains in the background and flying squirrels on the levels. It's really great - darthvadern

In this one, you can just relax.

5 World 5 (New Super Mario Bros. Wii) World 5 (New Super Mario Bros. Wii)

The jungle world of New Super Mario Bros. Wii takes the number #5 spot on the list. It's quite a hard world and one of the harder worlds in the game and it has some very memorable levels overall (that one level with green flying manta rays was awesome). This world's map enemies are quite annoying as well, the walking piranha plants can block your path, and the vines block your path even more, and I like it. Shame the vines disappear after you complete the world - darthvadern

6 Frosted Glacier (New Super Mario Bros. U) Frosted Glacier (New Super Mario Bros. U)

Frosted Glaciers is World 4 and is one of the most stunning to look at. The backgrounds look like something coming out of a famous painter, and level design is pretty good, but the ice... oh, the ice. I think there was this one level where you had to run while piranha plants were melting the ice (was that a secret level? ) and collecting the star coins there were Hell, but overall a good world and a pretty nice boss battle with Wendy. - Mario_Deluxe

That level you're talking about is 9-7 from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It's not from this game at all actually - darthvadern

I love Frosted Glacier. The imagery, especially the nighttime mountains background, is amazing, the levels are great, and I love the spinning stars. I wish the Penguin suit was here so I could slide around, but this is still great. - robertoiglesias271

This was a quite a beautiful world. The map music is very christmassy and the levels themselves are overall pretty nice to play. They are among the most beautiful and most visually stunning in the game, and are pretty good to play - darthvadern

7 Sparkling Waters (New Super Mario Bros. U) Sparkling Waters (New Super Mario Bros. U)

Sparkling Waters is one of the better stages in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. The scenery is amazing, however fighting the Cheep Cheep are an easy battle if you have the star. Some of the levels, however, were awful, like the Ghost House (which had to be the worst one in the game because of all the fake walls) and getting the last star coin in that one world when you got Yoshi, because it's so hard to keep him while Cheep Cheep are flying up from the water. Overall, it's a hard world with a bad boss battle, so I would put it in the neutral category. - Mario_Deluxe

Overall I thought World 3 of the Wii U game was quite good. Something I'll admit is that I did think a few of the levels weren't that good, I mean ghost houses are among the worst levels in my opinion, but the rest is quite good. I really liked the beach levels, apart from the underwater level, as they were really nice, and I especially loved the castle level! It's the only level in the game with my favourite underwater enemy in it: torpedo teds! They are quite rare in the game and this makes this one of my favourite levels in the game. I think the rest of the world is pretty solid too - darthvadern

8 World 2 (New Super Mario Bros.) World 2 (New Super Mario Bros.)

Overall I do really like this world. Most of the levels feel very fresh and different and music in the desert levels are very awesome to listen too and as I mentioned, the levels are all different, and honestly excellent as well! I especially love the castle level as it's iconic and requires some challenge - darthvadern

It's an awesome world. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

9 World Star (New Super Mario Bros. 2) World Star (New Super Mario Bros. 2)

Even though most of us can agree New Super Mario Bros. 2 was a disappointing and unoriginal mario game overall, something I think about the game is that a lot of the levels were very fun and original at least I guess. World Star proves this, as unlike the other two lackluster bonus worlds (mushroom and flower), most of the levels are unique to this world and don't feel like rehashes on existing levels (apart from Star-7, but other than that they're awesome). I mean one level is a mix of a ghost house and a beach, and another level is set in an underwater fortress, and it goes on, and on. I really liked this world - darthvadern

10 World 6 (New Super Mario Bros.) World 6 (New Super Mario Bros.)

The Contenders

11 World 2 (New Super Mario Bros. Wii) World 2 (New Super Mario Bros. Wii)

One of the most iconic worlds in the series in my opinion, and most levels feel different! At one point you'll be dodging spikes, another point there will be a sandstorm carrying a bunch of coins, and then there will be a bunch of pokeys and a lakitu attempting to hit you hit spinies, and it goes on, and on. The most iconic world in my opinion - darthvadern

12 World 1 (Super Mario Bros (NES))

Because it's a classic, the one where it all began.

D'OH. My bad. I could have sworn it didn't say "New" when I added this...

13 World 8 (New Super Mario Bros. Wii) World 8 (New Super Mario Bros. Wii)

This world is surely difficult, and satisfying to complete, that's for sure! This world is quite big, and unlike World 8 in New Super Mario Bros., the whole world is a lava world and not just the second half, and a lot of the levels are pretty good! I mean it, they are extremly fun to play! Let's not forget the epic moment at the end with the giant Bowser twist which is just pure epic - darthvadern

14 World 7 (New Super Mario Bros.)

Great music and level design
