About this image

Acorn Plains is the first world in New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. It lies south of Layer-Cake Desert, west to Sparkling Waters, Soda Jungle and Rock-Candy Mines, and southwest of Frosted Glacier, Meringue Clouds and Peach's Castle. It is a plains world with acorn trees, teal hills, shrubs, viridian jagged mountains reminiscent of some of the backgrounds in Super Mario World and the world's most defining feature, the Acorn Tree. This special tree is one of main sources of the game's new power-up, the Super Acorn. It can be found in the game's intro, Acorn Plains' map section and said world's first level. This world has eight levels, with 5 normal levels, a secret level, a Tower, a Castle, a red and green Toad House, a Piranha Plant Enemy Course, and a spot where a magenta Baby Yoshi walks near. The Castle boss of this world is Lemmy Koopa.
