In a change of pace from his usual kidnapping routine, Bowser, along with the Koopalings, decides to invade Princess Peach's castle, using a giant mechanical arm to throw Mario, Luigi and two Toads far away. Mario and company must now travel across this new land and find a way to go to the Princess' castle in order to save Peach again. On the way, they encounter each Koopaling, Kamek, Koopa monsters, Nabbit (a thief), Bowser Jr., and some minor enemies found inside levels. By conquering all of them, they inch closer to Peach. The heroes reach Peach's castle, which has been transformed into an evil reflection of Bowser. By defeating Bowser, the castle returns to normal. As the heroes celebrate, Bowser and the Koopalings attempt to escape, but their ship crashes and they are forced to flee on Bowser Jr.'s Koopa Clown Car. Written by
