Super Mario World 3D | Where is Level 3-B?

Finding the Super Mario World 3D 3-B level can easily stump some players, especially those who are going through Bowser’s Fury for the first time on the Switch. The level itself isn’t too difficult, but here’s how to find level 3-B in Super Mario 3D World and how to beat the boss inside.

How to find the Super Mario World 3D 3-B level

Super Mario World 3D | Where is Level 3-B?

To find the Super Mario World 3D 3-B level, go to the castle in the stage. This is the level with the Bullet Bill Express. Beat that level and save the purple Sprixie Princess  in the jar at the end. Upon completing the on-rails level, she will open up a path to the left.

The 3-B level is down that new path. Continue left past the castle and enter the clear tube. Go through it and it will take Mario to a small island. A cutscene will play and the “Banquet with Hisstocrat” will come down. Jump inside to start the boss fight.

How to beat the Super Mario World 3D 3-B level

The Hisstocrat is the boss of the 3-B level and, like most platformer bosses, relies on simple pattern recognition to beat. Avoid the falling rocks and then use the platforms on top of the snakes coming out of the ground to get to the big snake. Get high enough to jump on top of the big snake’s head. Players with the cat suit can climb up the smaller snakes instead of jumping on top of them. Either way should work.

Complete this a couple times and the beast will collapse. Collect the green star and coins and then go down the green pipe. Go right to grab the clock and then jump on the black flag with Bowser on it to end the level.
