World 2-3 is the third course of World 2 in Super Mario 3D Land. It has platforms resembling imagery from Super Mario Bros., along with an arrangement of said game's Ground Theme. The icon is a section of the course's colored blocks with smaller sections floating above them.


Mario starts the stage on a platform in the shape of his appearance in Super Mario Bros. There are three P-Switches — two located at Mario's overalls' buttons, and the other in Mario's ear. On the Mario platform there is a Brick Block with a Tail Wheel. Hitting it makes the platform rise up to a Luigi platform. A Propeller Box can be found here. Past some giant blocks is a platform in the shape of an 8-bit Super Mushroom; here, a P-Switch causes a line of coins to appear. Near one of the mushroom's spots, there is a Brick Block hiding a Tail Wheel. Twirling it with Tanooki Mario's tail causes the platform to rise, uncovering a Red Ring can be reached.

Past the Super Mushroom platform is a set of yellow and blue blocks with Paragoombas, coins and a green + Clock; the path of blocks leads to a platform in the shape of an 8-bit Princess Peach. Another Tail Wheel is found here, and raises the blocks composing Peach's dress stripe; this leads to a section with Goombas and Coin Coffers, as well as a Super Star surrounded by coins in a heart formation. Ahead, a Warp Box leads the character to a grassy area, with a background that resembles the Super Mario Bros. style. A Hard Block staircase is used to reach the Goal Pole; inside the fortress past it is a hidden Warp Box which takes Mario to a platform in the shape of an 8-bit 1-Up Mushroom, which has an actual 1-Up Mushroom and another Warp Box that returns him to the grassy area near the Goal Pole.

Star Medals[edit]

  • Star Medal 1: On the Mario platform, the right foot part contains a Brick Block with a Tail Wheel. Hitting it makes the platform rise up to a Luigi platform. The Star Medal is located there.
  • Star Medal 2: Between the Super Mushroom and Peach platforms, a Coin Ring can be seen with the Star Medal under it. Mario, using a Propeller Box, can grab the coin and fly back up to the block.
  • Star Medal 3: Mario must rise the Peach platform's dress stripe. The Star Medal is floating on the far left.
