Super Mario Odyssey is a game of exploration. The latest and hotly anticipated new Mario title contains 17 kingdoms in total, each with its own unique design, landscapes, and architecture.

To move from world to world, you'll need to collect moons, the game's main collectible item. Once a player defeats the boss in a level, they have an option to come back and search for new collectibles. After beating the main story, players will also be able to find even more moons in the post-game content.

Here are all the kingdoms in the game in order of appearance.

The Sand Kingdom mixes the Mexican tradition of Día de Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, with Egyptian architecture, all set against a desert-like backdrop. There are tons of secrets to be found across the sprawling desert as well as structures that float above land.

Lake Kingdom

The Lake Kingdom and Wooded Kingdom come after the Sand Kingdom—the player can choose which one they want to go to first. The Lake Kingdom acts as the game's Atlantis with an underwater city surrounded by beautiful coral-like structures. Most of the level is underwater, so be sure to check your air levels at all times.

Wooded Kingdom

The Wooded Kingdom is a giant greenhouse kingdom that has a factory inside of it, which is the main structure for players to explore. Players can also take a leap of faith in certain areas to discover a secret underground zone.

The Cloud Kingdom is where players first face off against Bowser. It is a small arena built in the clouds and is the smallest kingdom in the game.

After beating Bowser for the first time, players will be thrown into the Lost Kingdom instead of the Metro Kingdom.

The kingdom is surrounded by purple acid that will instantly kill a player once they fall into it. There are no second chances on this island, so be sure to always watch your step.

Power Moons: 66

Post-game Power Moons: 15

Metro Kingdom has been used in most of the promotional material for the game and it does not disappoint. The kingdom is full of references for multiple Mario and Donkey Kong games with Pauline, Mario's ex-lover, making an appearance as the mayor of the city.

The second water level of the game makes it appearance here. Most of the level's items and exploring is done underwater just like with the Lake Kingdom. There are also a few islands and cliffs scattered about to give you some pretty views.

Snow Kingdom

Post-game Power Moons: 18

The Snow Kingdom starts slow, blinding the player with a massive snowstorm before bursting to life. The game does a great job of taking away your sense freedom and direction before suddenly showcasing the vast and beautiful landscape.

A vibrant world full of color, the Luncheon Kingdom is surrounded by deadly lava pits that can kill you instantly. So be sure to always watch your step.

Bowser has gone for a Samurai feel for his castle this time around with a lot of Japanese aesthetics surrounding the multiple locations in the kingdom. Players will need to move from one section to the other by completing puzzles and beating waves of enemies.

Moon Kingdom

Power Moons: 27

Post-game Power Moons: 11

Total currency: 50

The final level before the post game has players travel to the moon to stop the wedding of Peach and Bowser. Gravity in this kingdom is significantly lower, allowing you to jump higher and farther than before. The landscape itself is barren, with most Moons hiding in plain sight.

Mushroom Kingdom

Power Moons: 43

Achievement Power Moons: 61

Total currency: 100

The Mushroom Kingdom can only be accessed after the player completes the main story of the game. It is the first of three post-game Kingdoms that players can explore and acts as an homage to the classic Super Mario 64 series of games, including a Mario 64 costume that turns Mario into his former polygonal self.

Dark Side

Power Moons: 24

The Dark side is one of two challenge stages in the post-game content. It is unlocked once a player has 250 or more moons and tasks the player with a gauntlet speed run against some of the bosses in the game—but only gives you one life. If you die, you go right back to the beginning.

After beating the bosses, players will unlock a king costume and crown for Mario. Players will also be able to return to the level to find more moons scattered across the map and secret portraits that hint to moons in other kingdoms.

Darker Side

Power Moons: 1

The Darker Side is the final level players can explore. It's unlocked once a player has over 500 moons in-game. There is only one moon to unlock and it can only be obtained by completing a grueling obstacle course that will test the player's wits and skill.

If you die anytime during the obstacle course, you'll be sent straight back to the beginning regardless of how far you progressed. Be conservative with your health and don't rush it, take your time and you will prevail.

Once the level is completed, it will unlock an additional costume that turns the player invisible.
