A very long time ago, a diamond star, which was buried underground, was heart of the Mushroom Kingdom. It shielded the kingdom from every attack on it, making things much easier. However, Bowser's ancestor managed to find the star and shatter it, and it cracked into eight shards. In the present-day Bowser's Castle, Bowser hears about the star. He hears that when all eight shards are put together, it can make the Mushroom Kingdom more powerful if the person who puts them together is good, and if they are evil, the Mushroom Kingdom will be destroyed. Bowser sends out the Koopalings and his minions to get the shards and destroy the kingdom. The six greatest heroes of the kingdom, Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Toad, and Rosalina, are told about Bowser's scheme and they set off on a quest to stop him.
