When Mario and Captain Toad go to the Star Festival 100 years after Super Mario Galaxy 2, they discover that no Star Bits are falling from the sky. Rosalina and Lubba come to warn them about an ancient evil that has returned. Suddenly, an evil holographic figure appears, threatening to end the universe.

Each world is accessed through a portal.
World 1: Bowser's Escape
Bowser is trying to escape to the ancient evil. He is seen at the end of every level of this world, and he battles you briefly at the end of those levels, but then quickly escapes. At the end, the evil ends up taking him away through a portal.
World 2: Bad Timing
In this world, there are occasionally portals that lead to the past or future. In order to continue through a level, you will sometimes need to go through those portals because there is usually something different between times.
World 3: Upgraded Weapons
This world introduces enemies that occasionally have strong armor and weapons to attack from a far distance. The Super Magnet can help in this situation.
World 4: Flight Frenzy
In this world, you will have to fly from planet to planet rather than using a star spin because there are no star spins.
World 5: Electric Power
A lot of things in this world are electric, so you can get shocked. However, there is a lot of technology that can help you.
World 6: Rock Stars
Some levels have actual stars in them, meaning the character could burn if they don't escape the star quickly. The introduction of Rock Mario is in this world.
World 7: Quest for the Titanium Power Key
At the end of each level is a short battle with Bowser, like in the first world, but you need to get a key from Bowser to enter the next world. If you defeat Bowser quickly enough, he will drop a part of the key. Once you have all parts of the key, the entire key can be created.
World 8: Doomsday Central
A key is required to enter this world. The levels in this world are extremely hard and also include every feature from past worlds except for Bowser drops different key pieces. On the last ordinary level, you battle Bowser at the end on a star with metallic enemies and electricity with portals and flying. The final boss is in this world.
World 9: Star Festival
This is the only world allows you to play as Bowser. You also unlock Luigi in this world. This world is basically a special world, each level with a different feature and occasionally no features at all. You need the key from World 8 to access this world. This also allows you to play the first level of the game, or the Tutorial Level, upon getting all other stars in the game.
