If you take a quick look around, you will see that the landscape has changed a little bit, offering the chance to obtain some new Power Moons. Some of these will be put off for later, but some will be gotten now. For starters, look for the Fire Bro in the immediate area and capture him, then find the two unlit braziers to the east. Light them both to get a Power Moon (Light the Two Flames) . If you go to where the big corn is, you should find a Lava Bubble right there, so capture it and head north. You can either jump across the gap and use the time-wasting cannon and if you didn’t grab the purple coins earlier, do so now.

Release the capture and climb up the ledges, avoiding the Fire Bros, and you will find yourself in a corner of Peronza Plaza, although there is another path you can take here. Touch the checkpoint flag and enter the pipe for a brief 8-bit mural. There’s not much here, besides two fireballs to avoid, as well as a Hammer Bro, but don’t forget to grab the three purple coins along the way (78) . Exit the pipe at the end, cross the corn while collecting three more purple coins (81) , then enter the cave.

There is a large hill of lava here you must climb with a Lava Bubble, with some pillars rolling down it to impede you. There is also six purple coins along the way, three on either side, so collect them while avoiding the pillars coming down (87) . Drop down below with the Lava Bubble once you reach the top and when you reach the bottom, look behind you to spy a hole in the lava fall. Use the geysers to get inside and grab the Power Moon there (Alcove Behind the Pillars of Magma) , then use the geysers to reach the next area, where you’ll want to light the only unlit brazier with the Lava Bubble. This will spawn a Power Moon and finish up this extremely short section (Climb Up the Cascading Magma) .
