The Wooded Kingdom (森の国 , lit. Forest Country?)is a location that appears in Super Mario Odyssey. It is a vast realm in the form of an dome forest. Its most notable city is Steam Gardens, which serves as the kingdom's main playable area in the game.
The Living Factory
No one knows who built the giant machines dotting this land, but today the Steam Gardeners use them to maintain the greatest flower gardens in the world. The giant dome is climate-controlled and apparently self-sufficient, operating with no maintenance since ancient times.
Guardians of Paradise
Visitors are welcomed not only by the humid air, but worker robots tending the flowers. They're known as Steam Gardeners, longtime residents of the kingdom. You'll be impressed at how long they can work without rest, maintaining themselves perfectly. But beyond being hard workers, the robots love flowers—some grow them right out of their heads! You'll feel the Steam Gardeners' warm hearts, from their flowers and also their internal steam pumps.
Flowers as a Way of Life
While you'll see amazing flowers on any visit, you might be lucky enough to see the famous Steam Gardens Soirée Bouquet. It features giant white flowers that charm all who lay eyes on it. As you might guess from the name, it's by far the most popular bouquet for wedding ceremonies, sought after by wedding planners the world over.
A Deep Wood's Secret
It doesn't appear on any tours, but there is an area untouched by the machines of the Steam Gardens. Here the trees grow quickly, barely allowing any light through. The Steam Gardeners do not speak of it, but rumor has it they discourage visiting this place because of the danger posed by the giant creatures that call it home.
A Growing Walkway
Be sure to try the system of paths called the Flower Road. You'll marvel at plants growing into temporary but walkable bridges. Watch your step, though—nature has no handrails.
Birds NOT of a Feather
Local birds here seem remarkably fond of their mechanical neighbors.
Three Keys to the Kingdom
- Smell the flowers. Not that you can miss them, but do savor the scent.
- Admire the Steam Gardeners and their impressive devotion to their work.
- Appreciate machines and nature living in exquisite harmony.
There are two paintings in this kingdom. One is located near the Forest Charging Station and it can be accessed easily by throwing Cappy to the Scarecrow that activates the Wooded Kingdom Timer Challenge 2 Power Moon, as well as the Scarecrow that activates the Wooded Kingdom Timer Challenge 3 Power Moon. By going to the top of the platforms and then jumping to the surface the player will find a cube-shaped structure in which the painting is. It can take the player to either the Southwestern Floating Island at the Sand Kingdom or the Floating Sky Island at the Luncheon Kingdom, and it can be accessed after defeating Spewart.
There are a total of 80 Power Moons (74 regular Power Moons and 2 Multi Moons) in the Wooded Kingdom. During the player's first visit to this kingdom, they can collect 47 Power Moons and the 2 Multi Moons, including one from the kingdom's Hint Art. The player can also collect a Power Moon by traveling through a painting in a future kingdom (the Metro Kingdom, Seaside Kingdom, or Snow Kingdom). After the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, 4 more Power Moons become available to collect. The Moon Rock will also be available to destroy, causing 22 additional Power Moons to be accessible.
