|“||Newer Super Mario Bros. DS is a sequel to Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, using assets and ideas from it, while keeping it somewhat fresh and taking advantage of mechanics in New Super Mario Bros. DS. Originally meant to just be a level and tileset hack, the game is now much more, ah, custom.||”|

Newer Super Mario Bros. DS takes place after the events of Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, acting as a sequel. After the Mario Bros. and Peach return from there vacation on Yoshi's island, Bowser Jr. kidnaps Princess Peach once again, forcing Mario to run off to get Princess Peach. As Mario passes throughout the seven worlds (and possibly a secret world), he makes it to Bowser's Castle, where he fights Bowser and finally rescues the princess.
Newer Super Mario Bros. DS features eight worlds, most of them being based off of the worlds from Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. All 8 worlds have the same paths as in the original game, but with a different theme.
|A fall-themed plains level that transitions into a forest midway in the world. It is near Peach's castle and features many mysterious ancient ruins. There are seven levels, one secret level, and a cannon.|
|A sewer-themed world inspired by Crystal Caves in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It takes place in the sewers of the Mushroom Kingdom, and Mario must hike though it to reach Dorries Island. There are eight levels, one secret level, and one cannon.|
|Dorrie's private island, that isn't so private when the Koopa clan and Bowser Jr. come, but Mario defeats them. It's a beach/jungle themed world introducing Dorrie. There are five levels, three secret levels, one ghost house, and one cannon.|
|A Halloween-themed world based on the world with the same name (also called Pumpkin Boneyard) in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It is a graveyard for members of the Koopa clan that pasted away. It is also ruled by King Boo, and is were Bowser gets his revenge on Mario as Dry Bowser. There are eight levels, one secret level, one ghost house, and one cannon.|
|This world takes place in a moonlit snowfield. It also includes lava in some levels, much like Freezeflame Glacier in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. There are six levels, three secret levels, one ghost house, and a cannon.|

|Bowser's tank squad attacked this area of the Mushroom kingdom. The first half of Koopa Country takes place in a barren desert, inspired by Dark Land in Super Mario Bros. 3. The second half takes place in a volcanic wasteland. Both sections have six levels to a total of twelve levels. Bowser's kingdom is the part of Koopa Country home to Bowser. Mario will come here to rescue Peach in an epic battle with King Koopa and his son.|
