New Super Mario Bros. Warped is an Platformer for the DS being made by Koopa Kastle Productions. It is similar to New Super Mario Bros. for features that include Mario as the main character, worlds from NSMB, etc. It is also similar to the Mario & Luigi series because it uses items from those games. Toad is also featured in this game, but is not playble. This game also features a time-warp system.
Mario is taking a walk with Peach and Toad when, all of a sudden, a nearby bush rustled. A Koopa Troopa popped out and started running towards the princess. Toad immediately sprang into action and combated the Koopa away from Peach. Behind them, 2 more Koopa Troopa's popped out of another nearby bush and sped towards Peach again. Mario jumped in front of them and fought them back. Then, from up above, a Shroob UFO hovered over Peach and beamed her up. Mario and Toad had defeated the Koopa's, but they couldn't reach the princess fast enough. When the UFO had beamed her up, it dropped a note into Toad's hands. It said, "HAHAHA! I have formed an alliance with the Shroob Empire, Mario! With them on my side, there's no way you can stop me!" Toad groaned and told Mario that they had to rescue Peach again. Mario nodded and the two heroes sped off towards adventure.
