Chapter 1 - The Dark Attack
In the opening, dark objects are launched to the earth from far in space, this object seems to be a Star-like figure. Those things are called Cosmic Dark Stars, that have been disappeared in space a very long time ago. The leader of these mysterious Stars is the great Lord Ztar. He is sending all of his minions to attack many kingdoms and take control of them, destroy them and then, rule them.
During this, Princess Peach and Princess Daisy are seen writing some letters for friends, inviting them to a party she's holding in her castle. After this, Mario and Luigi are eating some pancakes, but suddenly, Mailtoad interrupts them, giving them a letter from Princess Peach, for her party. Mario and Luigi reads the letter and immediately runs to the castle. Once arriving the castle, the Bros. hear screams coming from inside and immediately enters, to see that many Toads are trapped in dark bubbles and the Princesses and Toadsworth are being attacked by the Cosmic Dark Stars and Lord Ztar. Mario and Luigi then tries to stop him, but he paralyzes them in a great dark bubble. While the Bros. can't do anything, Lord Ztar continues attacking the castle, but he sees the blue pearl Peach has in her chest, and without saying anything, he kidnaps Peach and leaves the castle.
After all the riot, Wario and Waluigi sees all the habitants being attacked by these dark Stars, but they didn't care and then continue their way to Peach's Castle, because Peach also invited them to the party. When the Wario Bros. enters in the castle, they see all the disaster, but then they both sees the cake and start eating it. Then, Mario reawakens and sees Toadsworth walking around desperately and Wario and Waluigi eating the cake. Mario doesn't remember anything and asks Princess Daisy what happened. She tells Mario everything occurred, Mario wakes Luigi and start the adventure. But Wario and Waluigi thought they could gain money by saving her, so they start an adventure too, separately from the Mario Bros.
While traveling in the Mushroom Kingdom, they find a blue die and before trying to grab it, it starts floating and Tumble appears. He tells Mario and Luigi that he will help them and explains his functions, that he can keep their items, clothing, Shadow Shards and other things inside his die. Mario and Luigi, then continues traveling and arrives Goomba Valley, where Tumble explains the Bros. how to jump and fight. After this, they continue and see Toadbert thinking. He tells the Bros. about the Shadow Shards, that have been scattered into 10 pieces during Lord Ztar's attack and that when putting all them together, they will form the Shadow Star. Then, Tumble tells the brothers that they must collect those shards, with them, they could be even close to Peach's rescue, send the Cosmic Dark Stars far from the world and destroy Lord Ztar. The brothers continue their adventure and sees Goomboss with the first Shadow Shard. They confront him and after his defeat, they obtain the first Shadow Shard. However, Wario and Waluigi appears and require them the shard, starting up a battle between the Mario Bros. and the Wario Bros.
Chapter 2 - Inside the Fortress
After being the Wario Bros. defeated, Tumble appears and tell them that they should travel together, starting a friendly adventure between rivals. After getting the Shadow Shard, the 4 heroes move to Horlek Fortress, a mysterious and abandoned fortress. Here, The 4 heroes decide to adventure the fortress separately, and get
inside in different entrances. There, some friendly Hammer Bros. are trying to fix a mechanism with their hammers. They explain Mario and Luigi that the mechanism brings functionality to the fortress and that it doesn't work since a long time ago. The Hammer Bros. give the brothers Hammers to help them. After fixing the mechanism, the Hammer Bros. gratefully teaches Mario and Luigi how to use the hammers out-of-battle, and then in-battle. Then, the Bros. continue traveling and find Bowser in a strange place, Bowser tells Mario and Luigi that he know what happened to Peach, and that he's going to save her and take advantage to rule the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario and Luigi absolutely and obviously does not approve his plans and a battle starts. After being defeated, Bowser escapes and the Bros. travel the strange place, and find a locked door, Tumble tells them that the key to open the door could be in the place they are. Meanwhile, Wario and Waluigi are walking through a specie of bridge, and find another Shadow Shard, but before getting it, Big Bob-Omb appears and take it, and a battle between the Wario Bros. and the Big Bob-Omb starts. The Wario Bros. defeat him and obtain the second Shadow Shard. Then, they start searching the Mario Bros. to give Tumble the second Shadow Shard.
Meanwhile, Mario and Luigi are looking for the key inside the strange place they are, to see that the key is a Golden Hammer located above a skinny pipe. After getting it, Mario and Luigi open the door and The Wario Bros. find them, but before giving the Shadow Shard to Tumble, a strange shadow appears and take it. That shadow is Lord Ztar, presenting himself again to the Mario Bros. (Mario and Luigi didn't remember him, due to the effects of the paralization) and a battle starts. When the 4 heroes defeat him, he immediately dissapears, dropping the Shadow Shard. After obtaining the second Shadow Shard, the 4 heroes return to Toad Town to take a rest.

After defeating him, the Wario Bros. find a secret passage and enter it. Mario and Luigi are walking with Goomberto and find a key, the Bros. take it and Tumble appears saying that the key is pretty similar to the other found in Horlek Fortress, and that maybe it opens a secret door too. Maybe those doors not only allows them to continue, but have something to do with Lord Ztar. After finding the door and before opening it, the Wario Bros. appears with Parakoopie, and she and Goomberto start jumping happily, but suddenly, Petey Piranha appears with the third Shadow Shard in his hand.

The 4 heroes have to pass though maze-like corridors and avoid the guards. Some of the creatures and also Kamek find the heroes, so Kamek releases Darkus, a creation of him, so he can attack the heroes. After defeating Darkus, Kamek tries to defeat them, starting another battle, but he also fails, and escapes of the university.

Tumble appears and distract the X-Nauts while the plumbers escape from the room. After this, Tumble escapes, but the X-Nauts follow him. Tumble didn't know the X-Nauts were chasing him, so he accidentally led them to the heroes, and a battle starts. After beating the X-Nauts, the Bros. continue the adventure and enter a room with various mechanisms. Those things are being controlled by the X-Nauts, the Wario Bros. decide to battle the X-Nauts, and after defeating them, the Mario Bros. turn off the mechanism which produced more of the mysterious guards to attack, by using their hammers. Grodus notices the machine isn't working, so he decides to see the screen to see what's happening, and he sees the Mario Bros. are ruining his plans again. He sends more of his troops to defeat them. The 4 heroes have to hide somewhere, they go to the university's kitchen, and they hide there. The heroes find a secret door, and after opening it, they find a secret room installed by Grodus called the Control Room.
They find Grodus there, but Mario and Luigi are trapped by the X-Nauts before entering the room, so Wario and Waluigi are the ones that battle Grodus. Grodus uses one of the Shadow Shards to get more power and have more chance to fulfill his plans. However, the Wario Bros. defeat Grodus, and escape of the room with the Shadow Shard,. The room launchs with Grodus out of the university and all the X-Nauts escape along with the guards, leaving Mario and Luigi.

See also: Battle System
To start a battle, Mario, Luigi, Wario or Waluigi must touch an enemy or perform a First Strike by jumping on the enemy in the overworld. A first strike will damage the enemy before the battle starts. Since the game is an RPG, players and enemies will take turns to attack each other. Using well timed attacks can deal more damage to enemies.
Each character has his own HP, SP, POW, DEF, SPEED and STACHE points. When they finish a battle, they each gain EXP points and Coins. With enough Experience Points, they can level-up and increase their respective statistic.
- HP (abbreviation of Heart Points) is the amount of health the heroes have. When an enemy hits either of them, they lose HP. When their HP reaches zero, they pass out, but can be revived with a 1-Up Mushroom or 1-Up Super. HP can be replenished with a Mushroom, a Nut or a Garlic (Wario and Waluigi only).
- SP (abbreviation of Special Points) is how many times the heroes can use a Special Move. Each attack uses up a certain amount of SP, draining the total. SP can only be restored by using Syrup.
- POW (abbreviation of Power) is how strong the player is. The higher their POW stats are, the more damage they will perform.
- DEF (abbreviation of Defense) is how much damage the player can block from an enemy hit. The higher their DEF stats are, the less damage they will take.
- SPEED is how fast the heroes are. The more SPEED they have, the more they can attack an enemy in a single turn.
- STACHE is the most unique of Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi's stats. The higher their STACHE stats are, the greater there is a chance of a Lucky Hit, which doubles POW. Plus, it gives the heroes discounts when buying at shops and increases the worth of items sold.
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. Items, Items, Bros. Badges and Escape. 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, that brother's end of the bar fills slightly. When they meet in the middle, it's possible to use a Bros. Badge move. The effect varies with the equipped badge. The normal effect is to restore 20% of both brother's HP. Badges can be bought in one of the shops in Toad Town or Peach's Castle.
Wario and Waluigi's Battle System
Wario and Waluigi's battle system is almost the same as Mario and Luigi's, but with a few differences. When Wario does the Jump attack, he ground pounds in the second jump, Waluigi, however, does the same as the Mario Bros. They also, uses Punch instead of Hammer, similar to Bowser in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. If any of the Wario Bros. pass out, the other will be the understudy. If both pass out, the game will conduct a Game Over. Wario or Waluigi can go to battles separately like the Mario Bros. But if any of them pass out, it will be a game over, ignoring the other brother.
They also, have different Bros. Items, and different in-battle options, but use the same badges. Another thing is that they replenish their HP with Garlics instead of Mushrooms, and that they have different level simbols when ranking up.
When leveling up the heroes, they occasionally reach a rank. When this happen, new features are added to the game such as being able to equip more clothes or being able to shop in certain places. Here is a list of the ranks:

* means that the Mario bros must battle.
** means that the Wario bros must battle.
*** means that all four heroes must battle.
Actually, the Mario Bros. and the Wario Bros. adventure separately. But in many special and other occasions, the four heroes can adventure together and perform a few special out-of-battle techniques, such as the Bros. Cake or the Bros. Toss.
Overworld icons are the same as in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, displaying the characters health. Mario and Luigi still uses the A and B buttons to jump, respectively and at some point, they gain Hammers. Like in the previous title, Mario can destroy crates and rocks, while Luigi can hit Mario to shrink him to reach previously innaccesible areas. Their movement icons are identified with colors, with Mario's being red and Luigi's green. Wario and Waluigi, however, uses the X and Y buttons instead, to jump too. Althrough, they doesn't gain Hammers, but learns to Punch instead, while progressing in the game. Wario can punch Waluigi to push him at incredible speed to reach previously innaccesible areas, while Waluigi can puch special objects to perform different tasks. Their movement icons are identified with colors, with Wario's being yellow and Waluigi's purple.
The four heroes can travel in a 3D and 2D overworld. The 3D overworld can be activated when switching from 2D to 3D in the Nintendo 3DS. This 3D overworld is pretty useful in the adventure, as with it, the character can see hidden items, secret passages, etc., that can't be seen in the 2D overworld, helping the player to progress in the game. The game informs when the player has to use the 3D overworld, with a little "3D" letter at the top of the screen. Also, The game makes a greater use of the 3DS touch controls like Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story does with the DS and unlike the other predecessor, that does not use it in any way.

- Oddly, Wiggler King looks very big in the overworld, he also looks big in-battle, but his appareance in battle is much more like normal Wigglers.
