|“||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 their vacation to Yoshi's island, Bowser Jr. kidnaps Princess Peach once again, forcing Mario to run off to save her. As Mario pursues Bowser Jr. through the seven main 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 layouts as in the original game, but are retextured and modified to have different themes.
|A fall-themed plains area near Peach's Castle that transitions into a forest midway through the world. There are seven levels, one secret level, and a cannon.|
|An underground sewer-themed world inspired by Crystal Caves in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It takes place in the sewers of the Mushroom Kingdom, featuring many pipes and Piranha Plants. There are eight levels, one secret level, and one cannon.|
|A beach-themed world that transitions into a jungle midway through. Dorrie is introduced here. There are five levels, three secret levels, one ghost house, and one cannon.|
|A haunted world based on the world of the same name in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It features many Boos, Splunkins, and Dry Bones. 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.|
|The game's only secret world, taking place in space, based on Starry Skies in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It features drastically lowered gravity. There are nine levels and two secret levels.|
|A pink, sky-themed world which introduces many new enemies such as the Shy Guy and the Muncher. Some of the later levels feature dangerous thunderstorms. There are nine levels, one ghost house, and one secret level.|
|The first half of this world takes place in a barren desert, and the second half takes place in a volcanic wasteland. Both sections have six levels to a total of twelve levels. The world ends with Bowser's Castle, where Mario will finally rescue Peach in a climactic battle with Bowser and his son.|
