World 12 – World Crown

Super Mario 3D World: How to Beat World Crown-Crown: Champion’s Road

This level involves a lot of climbing and Beep Blocks. Once you get started, there isn’t a safe place to take a break at the beginning.

Tip:Peach and Rosalina both have natural abilities that can make these climbs much easier. 

How do I find the Green Stars in Champion’s Road?

Green Star #1

The first Green Star is located at the top of the second Beep Block Climb. 

Tip:Keep in mind that Peach and Rosalina can handle this section better than other characters.

Green Star #2 

The second Green Star is located across the moving platforms. 

Tip:Use the Warp Box to take you directly to the next part of the level. 

Green Star #3

The third Green Star can be snagged just as you enter the final section of the Dash Panel speedway. 

Tip:Act quickly. The Dash Panels cause you to speed up considerably. 

Super Mario 3D World: How to Beat World Crown: Captain Toad’s Fiery Finale

This level contains a total of five Green Stars and a Stamp. There’s really nothing else to do but start collecting goodies.

Tip: Watch your step! There’s lava all around, which can make your journey around the level tricky.

Green Star #2 

You need to reach the pillars across from where you started. When the lava is lowering, drop down and enter a small alcove to collect the second Green Star.

In the center of the Fire Piranha Plant is where you can find the fifth Green Star. 

Tip: Pass by the Fire Piranha Plant and take the Propeller Platform up. Drop down the hole at the center of the cloud. The fifth Green Star is just behind the Fire Piranha Plant. 

Where is the stamp in Captain Toad’s Fiery Finale?
