Moonview Glacier is the fifth world in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It takes place in a moonlit snowfield with some Freezeflame elements. It is represented by a snowman dressed as Mario over the night sky.

Its tower boss is Bowser Jr. and its castle boss is Snowipokey. King Boo is fought during The House of Stairs' secret exit.


Moonview Glacier is a night-skied snowy field akin to Freezefall Hill in Newer: Falling Leaf. Within Candelabrum Cavern and beside Icesmolder Lake are lava lakes, seemingly ineffective to the ice. Lava is also seen within Freezeflame Fortress. Snow Spikes and Ice Pokeys are commonplace.

Moonview Glacier can be accessed through completing Derelict Schooner in Pumpkin Boneyard or through using World 2-Cannon.png in Crystal Sewers, unlocked via Hydroskip Drain's secret exit. Completion of Freezeflame Fortress grants access to Lavender Skybridge in Cirrus Heavens. Completion of The House of Stairs' secret exit grants access to World 5-Cannon.png, the only path leading to Highhop Pass, or Asteroid Valley if the player buys a Star Coin Sign, in Lunar Realm.


  • A similar name, Moonview Highway was from Mario Kart Wii from the second race in Special Cup.
