Super Mario 3D World (Wii U)
Super Bell Hill, Double Cherry Pass, Shifty Boo Mansion, Bowser's Castle
Super Mario 3D World released in 2013 and in some ways, is a sequel to the Nintendo 3DS title Super Mario 3D Land. While Super Mario 3D Land took a lot of inspiration from Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario 3D World took many themes and ideas from Super Mario Bros. 2.
Super Bell Hill
This track features what is both the main and title theme to Super Mario 3D World. Similar to the Super Mario 3D Land soundtrack, there are some very noticeable jazzy elements to the games music tracks.
Double Cherry Pass
This track is a relatively unique theme that features an almost old-timey sound to it. The track features a full set of amazing and diverse instruments, as well as some other unique sounds.
Shifty Boo Mansion
This theme is a dark and haunting theme that plays during the games Boo Mansion levels. It has a comical creepiness to it, with the eery ghost crying sounds that are found throughout almost the entire Mario series.
This theme plays during the Bowser Castle levels. They are often difficult, tense stages in each Mario game that always feature a more crucial atmosphere to them.
