“Wow! An entirely new world! Looks like the path splits up ahead. Hey, don't look at me! The captain makes the choices, am I right?”
Lubba, Super Mario Galaxy 2

World 3: The Far Reaches of the Universe is a world traveled to in Super Mario Galaxy 2. World 3 is an area that contains a green nebula and many green comets and stars. Like the other worlds, there are seven galaxies in World 3, including a boss galaxy, Bowser Jr.'s Fearsome Fleet. Here, Bowser Jr. launches a second attack on Mario, this time with his giant robot Megahammer.

Cloudy Court Galaxy
This galaxy makes prominent use of the new Cloud Mario powerup via Cloud Flower. Mario needs to use his new power to create clouds to cross the gaps in the galaxy. However, strong winds slowly push the clouds that Mario creates, meaning that the player needs good timing and reaction to overcome this obstacle.
