Mario, Luigi, and Peach are enjoying an unheard conversation, and the camera pans around the castle, showing the Toads going about their business. The camera finally reaches the top of the castle's main tower, where Dark Bowser was fought in Bowser's Inside Story. A cluster of the dark bits caused by Fawful's explosion splits in two, and two figures rise out of the ground. Ram and Uil are then created. They look around, then at themselves, as if they are possessing a brand new body. Looking at each other, the two grunt in a robotic version of Mario and Luigi's "Lets'a Go!" and "Here we go..." A space-time ripple appears, and rips a hole in the fabric of space that the duo jumps into. Then land in what appears to be a purple version of Peach's castle, and they head through the main body. The shove many Mush to the side, and enter the central room. Standing up, Prince Plum, the alternate reality of Princess Peach, prepares to defend himself, but is easily defeated by their warping skills. They carry him away, towards the icy castle of Bowsaur, the alternate reality of Bowser. Amari and Guila watch helplessly, and they run up to the main tower, and hop through the vortex created by the evil duo. Then the title flashes onto the screen.
Chapter 1: Here we go again
Chapter 1 begins after the title disappears. Amari and Guila, now at Peach's Castle, run through, and find the room with Mairo, Luigi, and Peach. Mario and Luigi leave the room, disappointing the sisters. They chase them through the castle, but they always happen to leave the room as they get there. Running out of ideas, they run into Peach's room, and kidnap her, running through the Death Forest, a straight path to Bowser's Castle. Catching wind of this, the brothers run to her rescue, and the gameplay begins!
