Wendy's Shifting Castle, or Frosted Glacier-Castle, is the castle of Frosted Glacier in New Super Mario Bros. U. Its name is likely a reference to the novel Howl's Moving Castle. This level contains swinging girders, Dry Bones, and Thwomps. The boss is Wendy O. Koopa. It can be unlocked by finishing Swaying Ghost House, and completing this level opens the path to The Mighty Cannonship.


Wendy O. Koopa's boss battle

The level begins with some swinging girders that must be jumped across, with Dry Bones located on platforms in between them. Some Thwomps, a Big Thwomp, and a Thwimp are found in the next section, which leads to the Checkpoint Flag. Following the Checkpoint Flag, two girder platforms are found with a Thwomp in the middle. A Thwimp is found with a ? Block containing a power-up, and is followed by more girder platforms and Dry Bones. More Thwimps are found, with a hidden area filled with coins in a section of the ground. More girders follow, as well as Thwimps. A section with multiple Big Thwomps is found, with the boss door located at the end of the area.

The boss door leads to a red cannon. After being launched out of the red cannon into Wendy's airship, the player proceeds to fight Wendy O. Koopa. She uses her energy rings to knock icicles from the ceiling onto the player and, at the same time, skates across the area to avoid the player. After three hits, she is defeated and the path to The Mighty Cannonship is unlocked.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is behind the last Thwomp in a long line of falling Thwomps immediately before the Checkpoint Flag.
  • Star Coin 2: Between two Thwimps is a Brick Block. Above the Brick Block is a Hidden Block that can be used to reach a pipe that leads to the second Star Coin. A row of Thwimps can be found in the room with the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: In a section with moving girders, the player must make it to a pipe at the bottom of the course that leads to the final Star Coin. The Star Coin is hidden behind a Big Thwomp, with lifts on either side of it.
