Super Mario Galaxy ZGP is the third instalment of the Super Mario Galaxy Series. Newer enemies have been added as well as different coloured Lumas.
Mario receives a letter from Peach to celebrate the Star Festival at the castle. Mario eventually arrives and is greeted by several Toads. Once he steps foot on to the bridge, a hole (what looks like a black hole) appears in the sky and sucks the castle, with Peach inside! Luigi and Daisy appears behind Mario and they watch in dismay.
Meanwhile, the "black hole" closes and a UFO-like object flies away with the castle underneath. Bowser is seen approaching the castle with, what looks like, Power Stars in a cage being pushed by Bowser Jr. The young Koopa slips and the Power Stars are scattered around the universe; leaving the Grand Stars in Bowser's Grasp.
In the Mushroom Kingdom, Luigi, Daisy and Mario are talking to the Toad Brigade and then several Lumas and Lubba appear. Lubba and Mario star to talk while Rosalina flies in. They greet her upon her arrival and Rosalina and Lubba agree to help the two brothers to find Peach. The Starship Mario and Comet Observatory appear behind the Lumas and the two fuse together, forming the all new "Starship Observatory". The Toad Brigade decide to join in and use the Starshroom to help. Daisy joins the Toads in the Starshroom.

Difference Between ZGP and 3DS
|Maximum lives is 999||Maximum lives is 1500|
|SkiHi Storm has no Comet||SkiHi Storm has a Prankster Comet|
|Boolossus appears on S.O upon completing a Mission||Boolossus must be fought in Boo Zoo Galaxy to appear on S.O|
|Daisy appears in Grandmaster Galaxy to give advice.||Daisy doesn't appear in Grandmaster Galaxy|
|Luigi is playable from the start||Luigi is only playable when the player has collected 30 Stars.|
- In the ZGP Version, Jungle Glide Galaxy, SkiHi Storm Galaxy and Grandmaster Galaxy are the only 3 galaxies to not have a Prankster Comet in orbit.
- This is the first game where Luigi is playable from the start.
- This is Daisy's first SMG appearance.
- Stone Tube, Slippery Sand and Bingo Beach Galaxy are the only galaxies to have a Prankster Comet missions without the Prankster comet's name in. (eg. Mega Wigglers on the Run is the name of the Speedy Comet for Stone Tube Galaxy.)
- Stone Tube Galaxy is a replica of the Stone Tube planet in Super Mario Galaxy 2; Supermassive Galaxy.
- Green Stars were originally going to be in the game, but were cut to keep the old "120 star" tradition.
- Petey Piranha and Boolossus (ZGP Version only) are strangely on the "good side" when in previous games, he is portrayed as a Boss.
