|“||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. 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, featuring a forest midway in the world.|
|A sewer-themed world inspired by Crystal Caves in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii.|
|A beach/jungle themed world introducing Dorrie.|
|A halloween-themed world based on the world with the same name in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii.|
|This world takes place in a moonlit snowfield. It also includes lava in some levels.|
