First Course is the first level of the Coin Challenge Pack A in New Super Mario Bros. 2, as well as the fourth DLC level in the game.


The level begins with stacks of rainbow-colored semisolid platforms along with a Goomba Tower. More rainbow-colored semisolid platforms appear as well as several Piranha Plants and another Goomba Tower. The Checkpoint Flag immediately follows atop a Warp Pipe. Another area follows with more Piranha Plants and Goomba Towers, as well as an ! Pipe that releases three Gold Mushrooms when exhausted. One more stack of rainbow-colored semisolid platforms appears along with a Red Ring, and it follows with a semisolid platform staircase and a Goomba Tower leading to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: In the very start of the level, on the left set of blocks. The player must jump from the second highest block on the right set to reach it.
  • Star Coin 2: A hidden vine can be found before the third Star Coin. Using the vine will lead to an area that has the second Star Coin, along with a P Switch.
  • Star Coin 3: Within a maze of blocks and pipes just below the Checkpoint Flag. Mario must go to the farthest right entrance of the maze and move left.
