The main idea of New Super Mario Bros. 3 is that Bowser has recovered from his defeat in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. After he recovered he stayed in lava land and built a new castle. he thought of what to do and did it. Mario and the gang are off to stop him. This will be one of the hardest and longest Mario games ever.
For a year Bowser spent his time recovering and rebuilding his koopa army. Slowly he was able to put his old castle back together. His children returned from their evil doings in faraway lands. He hatches a nasty plan in his brain. He sets out... Mario,Peach,Luigi,Wario,Waluigi,Yoshi, and the Toads are all hanging out at the castle. Thats when Wario and Waluigi fall under some sort of trance. They grab Peach and run away. Meanwhile in the jungle Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie, and Pauline are at the treehouse. Donkey Kong falls under the same trance as the others. he grabs Pualine and runs into the jungle at full speed. At that same moment on Yoshi Island Daisy is exploring the island with the Yoshis. Monty Mole pops out of the ground and takes Daisy deep underground. Bowser, waiting at the castle, is happy as he sees his new minions coming up the mountian with his prizes. He gives them the orders and they lumber off to their posts. he has given each of them a job. Protect the princesses and destoy the Mario Bros. The two brothers had already set off when they noticed that a few toads in town had gone missing. Bowser had captured them too. Toadsworth stopped them and told them to protect the princecces at all costs.

Daisy is even able to go back to Yoshi island. All is well...
Here are some ways to get extra points.
If you jump on the flag when the last two numbers of the clock are the same(ex:22,44,77,99) you will get 1,000 extra points for that number.(ex:22=2,000 points or 99=9,000 points)
Before you go in some levels there might be a toad sign above the level. If you find the Toad and finish the level with him on your shoulders, you will get 10,000 extra points.
Finishing while riding Yoshi will get you 5,000 extra points.
Once you finish the game there will be a letter at the castle saying that there is a new world discovered. Go to the World Map screen and it will open up. World Z is like a mish mash of all the different worlds. All you have to do is get every Star Coin in every world to open up each level.
A boss room is a room or stationary level that is filled with a certain type of enemy. The goal is to get to the top or the flag. They are often harder than normal levels.
