While Peach and Toadette have their own adventure, Mario and Luigi have to rescue the eight Nolinight Cells from Lord Sundrollio and stop his minions from attacking the Mushroom Kingdom.
In the opening, dark creatures are fired at the earth, these creatures are in the shape for sun rays, they are called sundroids, they have been sent out by the dark villain Lord Sundroilio , he is their master and he has sent them to dominate the Mushroom Kingdom and take it over.
Mario and Luigi are heading to Peach's Castle however are greeted by a small little moon rock, he introduces himself as Moonite, who explains that the Princess has decided to hold a meeting about the Starmote energy cells that have gone missing and the strange appearances of colors poising the Mushroom Kingdom residents and other creatures. During the meeting, all of a sudden, Nabbit runs in through the door,however, he appears to have strange powers and is glowing in many different colours.
He suddenly grabs a small bag and runs out the door with the remaining Toads chasing after him. Princess Peach says that the bag is filled with Bros. Attacks, very powerful items that Mario and Luigi can use in battle. Mario and Luigi go back into the meeting room, to see that many Toads are trapped in dark bubbles. Lord Sundrollio is holding them captive, Mario and Luigi then try to stop him, but he paralyzes them in a great dark bubble. While the Bros. can't do anything, Lord Sundrollio continues attacking the castle, until he notices the blue pearl Peach has on her chest, he grabs the pearl, but then it opens up and sucks Peach and the Toads inside. Mario and Luigi escape, but Sundrollio releases a blast of fire on the castle, the flames explode, knocking Mario, Luigi and Sundrollio away from the castle.
Princess Peach wakes up inside the Base Box and finds Toadette hanging from a tree, Peach Slaps the tree and Toadette lands on the ground. Unaware where they are, they travel through the Base Box while noticing all the habitants being attacked by Bowser's Minions. This starts a tutorial battle for Peach and Toadette, a nerby habitant tells the duo how to battle. After being defeated, the minions realise what happened and give Peach and Toadette two parasols to use in battle and the overworld. They explain how to use the parasols and they flee.
Mario and Luigi wake up in Shroom Goom Plains soon finding Moonquise, who agrees to help the bros on their quest and eventually come across a mysterious cloaked merchant, who gives the bros a Dimension Flower, but knowing what it is Moonite knocks the flower out of Mario's hands and throws it into the mouth of the merchant's cloak which makes it disappear and reveal the figure to be Sundrollio's minion, Scooplousio, a dangerous ruthless soulus sundroid ghost that battles the bros, with Moonite giving the instructions on how to battle with Bros. Attacks, the bros who win the fight retrieve two hammers, Moonite teaches the bros how to use the hammers and are about to move on but see a crystal diamond on the ground shaking and making a radio transmission noise, the Crystal speaks in Peach's voice, Moonite tries to speak to it in an attempt to figure out what happened. Moonite picks it up and puts in inside his stone head and tells Mario that it might be useful for something. Moonite remembers something about it and its name, he says that its called the Emerald Crytstar
Mario and Luigi set out to Bowser's Castle, in order to find Sundrollio. Travelling along Sander Hander Beach, they encounter Bowser who refuses to fight the bros because of the fact that he is weakened by Sundrollio's attacks to the castle, Bowser heads back to his castle in order to stop Sundrollio and reclaim his castle, Mario and Luigi travel through the beach and encounter the Cheepolousio Statue which is zapped by a Sundroid ship and starts acting crazy, forcing the bros to battle the statue. After defeating the statue, the Bros are stopped by a huge glacier that pops out of the sand, the Emerald Crytstar is placed near the statue, causing changes in the Base Box, changing Narch March Village into Koloride Docks, allowing Peach and Toadette to travel through the dockside buildings and the Base Box salty waters and defeat the big blooper. After defeating big blooper, Peach and Toadette run into Antasma, learning that he is going to demolish the Mushroom Kingdom and escapes.
Mario and Luigi enter Colloni Woods where they find Nabbit still shinning with colors planning to steal the treasure in Bowser's Castle, Mario and Luigi battle Nabbit to rescue the remaining Bros. Attacks he has stolen, only collecting the Trampoblock, the bros win the fight and Nabbit runs away heading to Bowser's Castle.
Meanwhile Bowser and his minions begin planning their attack against Lord Sundrollio and his minions. When Bowser Jr gets board, Bowser asks him to watch after the Bob-ombs and make sure they don't blow up the castle. After Bowser Jr leaves the room and the minions talk about what to use against the Sundroids. Kamek tells the minions that the Mario Bros are looking for the Nolight Cells and that using them would be an advantage against Lord Sundrollio. Agreeing with the plan, Bowser sends his Elite Trio to Cuie Lake to find them.
The overall gameplay is very similar to the previous installments, but has two sepreate playable characters that don't travel with Mario and Luigi. Players control the four characters as they travel through different areas in the Mushroom Kingdom and the Base Box. The game introduces new techniques that require Mario and Luigi to give Peach and Toadette an advantage to find different objects inside the Base Box, for example, there is a part in the story where Mario and Luigi defeat the Cheepolousio Statue in Sander Hander Beach, after the statue is defeated, the Emerald Cyrtstar is placed near the statue, where the world Narch March Village changes automatically. It can be unlocked in the Base Box world map where Peach and Toadette can travel to the different parts that Mario and Luigi have unlocked.
New attacks that allow Peach and Toadette to perform special attacks by using their servants and items. Most Royal Attacks have Peach and Toadette call Toads to help them preform techniques while others use different items that they find in the Base Box.

Mario and Luigi's Battle System
Mario and Luigi's battle system is similar to the battles from previous titles. During a battle, the two heroes have six choices when attacking, these are Jump, Hammer, Bros. Attack, Items, Card Changer and Flee. The Bros. can defend with their jumps and hammers. The Jump makes Mario and/or Luigi jump to dodge an attack or to counter-attack.
When Mario or Luigi pull off an action command, the rating they get fills up the Star Point Meter. Star Points are the cost of Battle Cards, and whenever Mario or Luigi get OK, Good, Great, Excellent! or Amazing!! they add up the amount of Star Points inside the meter.
Peach and Toadette's battle system
Peach and Toadette's battle system is mostly similar to Bowser's battles from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story but with a few differences. They have different options Peach has Slap, Parasol and Royal Attacks. Toadette has one different option from Peach, she has Head bonk, Parasol and Royal Attacks. They can also transfer enemies with their a ability called Enemy Swap. This ability allows Peach and Toadette to use their magic powers to transfer enemies to the Mushroom Kingdom and allow Mario and Luigi to fight the enemies outside the Base Box, however it costs Star Points and works similarly to the Battle Cards. An additional seventh option appears named Hint if the player loses a battle and tries again in either easy mode or normal mode.
