1-2, is the second course of World 1 in New Super Mario Bros. X. It is an underground course with slanted pipes and shifting crystals. It is the first course to feature the Fire Flower and Mega Mushroom. After this level is completed, a cutscene will show the flags on Peach's Castle being replaced by Bowser's flags, next is World 1-3


The course is filled with slanted pipes, which Piranha Plants come out of, and shifting crystals, which move when the player gets to a specific point. Later in the course, there is a long pathway where the player can slide into Goombas to gain 1-Ups. There is also a bonus area full of Buzzy Beetles and a POW Block. The player can toss the POW Block to make a shower of coins to fall down, and Mega Mushroom to destroy blocks, pipes, and enemies.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: At the end of a long slide with Goombas.
  • Star Coin 2: At the end of a corridor full of slanted pipes, the player must use a Koopa Shell to hit a Brick Block. The Brick Block contains a vine that leads to a sub-area, in which the player can use the Cannon Pipe to get the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Once the player runs into two blue crystals, one with an Arrow Sign on it, the player must Ground Pound the latter crystal to reveal the path to the Warp Pipe, which leads to the sub-area with the final Star Coin in it, before Mega Mushroom.
