Current Event, is the fifth course of Peach's Castle in New Super Luigi U. It is unlocked from completing Hot Cogs or Firefall Rising and its own completion unlocks The Final Battle. The course's name is a pun on "electric current" and the phrase "current event", another term for news.


The level begins on a platform in the castle, with stairs going to a tilt lift. The lava begins rising, and a few Bowser Amps are found. A Pipe Cannon follows, which leads to a platform above where another tilt lift is located. Parabombs begin falling from above throughout the area, and two connected Bowser Amps are found just before the first Warp Door. A Hidden Block containing a 1-Up Mushroom is found to the right of the door. Another Pipe Cannon is found, which leads to a section of the ground with ? Blocks and a Bob-omb. A third tilt lift is found, leading through another section of Bowser Amps and Parabombs. Another Warp Door is found, with another Hidden Block containing a 1-Up Mushroom to the right of it. The Goal Pole is then found at the end in the final room.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: At the beginning, the player must jump in between two Bowser Amps to get the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: After going through the Pipe Cannon, the player must use the Parabomb and throw it at the Star Coin. The player can also have a Bob-omb land on the platform to lower it to the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: On the third tilt lift, above the Bowser Amps in a V formation, the player can either jump off the Parabomb or time their jump to obtain the Star Coin.
