Each character has a different story mode, but the main idea is that the Mushroom Village is under attack by Bowser, and is stealing all the stars from every house in the village. This is where depending on the character you selected, the story changes.
Mario is walking down a path over a hill when all of the sudden, he looks over the hill and sees an entire town's power go out, there are lights everywhere else he can see besides one spot. He dashes into action to the town, when he gets there, he can hardly see. Mario can't make out anything, it's too dark. He ends up walking into a building, and looks up to see a giant machine. Bowser is there collecting all of the stars in the giant machine, it starts glowing with all the power. The mushroom villagers start to walk out of their houses wondering where the power went. Bowser laughs an evil laugh, and tells the townsfolk that he needs all the stars to power his Space Amusement Park. The citizens gasp, knowing they have no power, or water, or any electric at all. Bowser flies away in the oversized machine and Mario springs into action. The mayor of the town, a blue mushroom headed person, taps Mario on the shoulder and leads him to the bank. He takes Mario to the basement and opens a secret backup safe. Inside is one power star, he gives the one star to Mario and tells him to collect more to power the city again. When the mayor gives Mario the power star, the streetlights start glowing very dim so there is a little light in the city. He then gives Mario a map showing the best route to Bowser. Lastly the mayor tells Mario to grab friends to take along to help.

Luigi is taking a stroll at night when he hears something rustling in a bush. He flicks on his flashlight and sees just a normal koopa, he flashes the koopa with the light and the koopa quickly retreats to it's shell. Luigi turns around with the light and flashes it in front of him to see a dozen koopa shells coming for him. Luigi frets and quickly jumps over them, when landing he wipes sweat off his head. Oblivious to the fact there is a red koopa shell coming from behind him, it knocks his feet over and he trips and falls on his back. That's when he sees a giant Koopa shell machine, sucking power stars into it's shell. He flashes the light to the top of the shell and sees Dry Bones. Dry Bones throws a bone at Luigi, knocking him unconscious, letting the giant shell get away. By morning, Luigi wakes up to a surprise, he sees mushroom village inhabitants standing in a circle around him. The mayor, a blue mushroom headed citizen helps Luigi up and takes him to the bank, he tells Luigi about how they stole all of their power stars and opens up a safe that has one single star inside of it. He gives the star to Luigi and also hands Luigi a map of the fastest route to Bowser. When Luigi gets the star, water starts flowing in the village and the river fills up again, along with a waterfall and geysers on the outside of the city. Lastly the mayor tells Luigi to gather some friends to help him with the quest.

Princess Peach's Story
The Princess starts off sleeping in her mushroom bed early morning, when suddenly a hammer flies through the glass mural next to her bed. Peach wakes up startled, and walks over to the hammer. There was a note on the hammer that read: "Dear Toadstool, we have kidnapped Mario and are holding him hostage at the Mushroom Village, sincerely Bowser and co." After reading that, Princess gasps and runs out the door to the Mushroom Village, which isn't too horribly far away from the castle. When Peach gets to the town, she sees an army of Boomerang Bros. Fire Bros. and Hammer Bros. that are running into houses terrorizing the people and stealing their stars. They are loading the stars on a giant hammer-shaped truck. One hammer bro. walks up to peach with rope and ties her so she can't move and leaves her lay there. The bros. take off with the stars in the truck, while Peach lay helpless. Later on two mushroom villagers and the mayor come out of their houses. The mayor orders the two villagers to untie Peach, the mayor then leads Peach to the bank's basement. He tells her about what happened and how there is no power left in the town. The mayor opens a safe that is holding one power star, and gives it to Peach, along with a map of the safest route to Bowser. When the mayor gives Peach the star, flowers start to blossom again all over town, and grass starts growing and trees start to fill out again. Lastly the mayor tells Peach to group up friends to go with her.
