Step 1:
Open your NSMB ROM in NSMB editor.

Step 2:
Go to ROM File Browser -> FILESYSTEM -> root -> uiStudio.

Step 3:
Before proceeding any further, extract the file UI_O_1P_course_select_u_ncg.bin, you'll see later why you need to do this step.

Step 4:
Double-click on the file UI_O_1P_course_select_o_ud_ncl.bin to open the Palette Viewer.
Tick 16 Color on the bottom-left, and click Add all.

Step 5:
You can close the Palette Viewer, then double-click on UI_O_1P_course_select_u_ncg.bin.

Step 6:
On the 2D Texture Editor window, click on View in 4 bpp format.
Set Tile Width to 24.
Click on Export this bitmap.

Step 7:
Open the image you exported in Step 6 with Photoshop, GIMP or another Image editor.

Step 8:
Now that the image is opened, click Ctrl+A (which is usually the shortcut for Select All) and click Del.
This will completely erase the image, but not the template, which is what we need.

Step 9:
Now fetch your custom World Icons (who must be 32×32 in size, regardless of transparency), and copy them in the image template with the following line-up:
_Duo 1: W1 with W8
_Duo 2: W2 with W6
_Duo 3: W3 with W4
_Duo 4: W5 with W7
Not only that but to ease the workload, group them in such a way that you can delete the 3 other duos in one single selection, something like this for example:


Step 10:
Select duos 2, 3 and 4 and click Del, then Ctrl+S (which is usually the shortcut for Saving)
On NSMB editor, select palette 5, then click on Import this bitmap and recreate palette to import the image you just saved on Photoshop.

Step 11:
Now go back to Photoshop, and click Ctrl+Alt+Z (which should Undo the last action).
Repeat step 11 but with duos 1, 3 and 4 this time.
Then once you're done you will have to repeat this operation twice more, for duos 1, 2 and 4 and for duos 1, 2 and 3.
When you import the remaining duo, keep in mind the palettes you want to overwrite:
_Duo 1: palette 5
_Duo 2: palette 4
_Duo 3: palette 6
_Duo 4: palette 7

Step 12:
You can click Save all and exit the Tilemap Editor.
Go to file UI_O_1P_course_select_u_ncg.bin and click replace to re-import the file you extracted in step 3.

Step 13:
Repeat Step 4.

Step 14:
You can close the Palette Viewer, then double-click on UI_O_1P_course_select_d_nce.bncd.

Step 15:
Click on View in 4 bpp format.

Step 16:
Now locate each of the World Icons, and click Import this bitmap with existing palette, as a reminder:
_W1: palette 5
_W2: palette 4
_W3: palette 6
_W4: palette 6
_W5: palette 7
_W6: palette 4
_W7: palette 7
_W8: palette 5

Step 17:
Click Save all and exit the Tilemap Editor.

Step 18:

This really seems like a perfect thing to ASM Hack to use separate palettes, you know. Wink Wink Nudge Nudge Poke Poke

The same thing I said to  SnakeBlock, I can do that but first I want to finish my (groundbreaking ?) ASM Hack, in fact I already finished it but I still need to re-arrange the, how many? Oh yeah, 2220 new files that I created in a folder named visual_course!

I can give a hint about what it is: this ASM Hack emulates NSMB U behavior kinda.

That sounds like something like an extra BG layer or tile layer of some sort

"NSMBU behaviour"?

Sounds intriguing.

Perfect thread you chose to ask this question, really.
Also  skawo's quote fits your question perfectly.
Lastly why don't you send a pm to him, if you only want an answer from him

Anyways, not a perfect match, but Imaki Condensed Bold Italic seems simmilar.

I don't know if this contains the font, but it might be helpful anyway: an official (or at least licensed) SVG of the logo http://www.pidgi.net/wiki/File:Logo_(SVG)_EN_-_New_Super_Mario_Bros.svg
