Set in the Mushroom Kingdom and featuring its cast of well-known
characters, this adventure RPG begins with a familiar scenario: Mario
must rescue Princess Toadstool from Bowser. However, a mysterious new
enemy named Smithy soon appears, and Mario and Bowser are forced to
fight as allies for the first time in their long history. In the quest
to defeat their powerful new foe, they’ll journey across a wide variety
of locations (a town of mining moles, a tropical forest, a thundering
waterfall—just to name a few) and tackle a mix of obstacles requiring
both expert timing and strategy to overcome. Along the way, they’ll gain
experience and grow more powerful, while also meeting new characters
whose unique abilities will be needed to take on Smithy and his gang.
Striking a perfect balance of traditional RPG elements and the
action-packed game play Mario is famous for, it’s easy to see why this
title has earned “legendary” status!
