Mushroom City...a bustling metropolis lying at the heart of the Mushroom Kingdom. It's home to dozens of Toads and other species alike. One night, a mysterious glowing object strikes a hill outside of the city. The object is a Smash Ball, an orb containing the ultimate power. It awakens some of the kingdom's greatest threats and causes the master of the Smash Ball, Master Core, to come to life as well. The next day, the Mario Bros. get word of this and set out to find the Smash Fragments, which were scattered after Master Core was reawoken.

- Danny Wells was intended to play Luigi, but because of his passing, Tony Rosato returned to play Luigi.
- Andrew Sabiston (voice of Diddy Kong in both this series and the Donkey Kong Country series) also voiced Yoshi, but turned down the role as some scenes involved both Diddy and Yoshi talking. Thus, Kazumi Totaka reprised his role as Yoshi.
