Footlight Lane, otherwise named World Bowser-4, is the fourth standard course and fifth overall level in World Bowser from Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, becoming accessible after the completion of The Bowser Express. The completion of either this level or Deepwater Dungeon unlocks A Beam in the Dark.


The level is composed primarily of invisible blue walkways that become visible around the player, but the view of the paths expand on impact by Cat Bullet Bills, Thwomps, or Ground Pounds. The level starts on a cyan pathway with a Thwomp and a Parabones nearby, followed by some more Thwomps. Another cyan pathway infested with Parabones brings the player to the Checkpoint Flag. This time, spiked rollers fill the pathway. This is followed by a cyan pathway with a multitude of Bullet Bill launchers nearby. The Bullet Bills soon stop coming out and are replaced by Cat Bullet Bills. A nearby Warp Box brings the player to an area which houses the Goal Pole.

Green Stars[edit]

  • Green Star 1: Right before the checkpoint, the first Green Star is on an isolated invisible platform.
  • Green Star 2: The player must activate the Green Ring and collect all 8 Green Coins to reveal the Green Star.
  • Green Star 3: After the stamp, there is a Mystery Box that leads to a room with invisible floors, a Thwomp, and the Green Star.
