Story and Gameplay

It's a nice day in the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario and Luigi get an invitation to Peach's Castle for a party. Once Mario and Luigi get the invite to the castle, they start running to the castle immediately. Then it the story goes into Tutorial Fields, a level that can be replayed to get a good grip on how to play the game. It explains how to play with Mario and Luigi and how to switch your characters with the Player Panels Box in the Quick Menu. It also says that whenever you get a new power-up, a text box will appear and explain how to use it. Then the player can go through the level normally. Then at the end, the player gets to a miniboss section in with case the miniboss is taken down action style. Here's how that works: minibosses are easy to beat. There will always be a miniboss at the end of the last level of that world before the boss level. You can use items to help you, and you want to avoid any of the boss and minibosses' attacks. After Tutorial Fields is done with, the player reaches Peach's Castle and get into a cutscene and it shows that everything is going well at the party, but Bowser comes to crash it, along with the Koopalings, Bowser Jr. and his elite minions. Then they get into a boss battle which is also fought action style. After Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad fight Bowser, Bowser shows everyone the Dark Star Rod he has, and uses it to put everyone in cages except the main 4 protagonists and kidnaps everyone and puts them in his castle. He then tells Mario that he'll never get to him, and flys away. The Koopalings and Bowser Jr. go to their castles. Then, when Mario and the gang almost give up, one of the star sprites that guards over the kingdom, who has appeared in Bowser's Inside Story and Dream Team, Starlo, comes and helps them get the Rainbow-Power Stars, the things they'll need to get from each world. The 5 spring into action and get the Rainbow-Power Stars. Starlo is the character that'll help you if you don't know what to do or how to solve a particular puzzle. She's basically your guidence character. The player can ask her what to do by pressing the SELECT button on the Wii U Gamepad and on the Wii Remote and the Wii U Pro Controller. The Gameplay is simple: you have your for main characters who can run, jump and break objects with ground pound and power-ups, and each character can do a specific thing. Mario can wall jump, Luigi can jump higher, Peach can float and Toad can Invincidash for 3 seconds at his max speed. Levels are in 3D plains.
