One day, the Koopa, a tribe of large turtles capable of using powerful magic, invaded the peaceful kingdom of the Mushroom People. They used their magic to transform all the Mushroom People into things like rocks, bricks, and horsetail plants, thus causing the Mushroom Kingdom's downfall.

The only one who can lift the spell on the Mushroom People and bring them back to life is the Mushroom Kingdom's Princess Peach. She is currently in the clutches of Great Demon King Koopa.

Mario has stepped up to defeat the Turtle Tribe, save Princess Peach, and restore peace to the Mushroom Kingdom.

The Mario inside the TV is you. Only you can bring this quest to a conclusion.
