Super Mario Pirate Adventure was to be the next game in the Super Mario 3D Platformer Series (Coming after Super Mario Galaxy 2). It shares many similarities to Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy (1 and 2).


Peach invites Mario to the castle for cake. When Mario arrives out of the warp pipe, he heads outside the castle. When he heads to the entrance, Peach is there (and not kidnapped). However, they head inside, and Bowser is there. Bowser says that the Koopalings have been kidnapped by some Pirate Guy. Bowser asks Mario and Peach to join him in his quest. Together, they run out of the castle, and into the warp pipe. The Warp Pipe teleports them to Delfino Airstrip, where a Pirate Ship is waiting for them. Mario, Peach and Bowser head inside, to see that Bowser Jr. and Luigi are in there. There are two pirates: One beastly looking guy, and a pirate human. Mario jumps on the boat and battles them. The human pirate reveals to be a hero, and the monster guy is a villain. Bowser Jr. and Luigi decide to join Mario, Peach and Bowser on their quest to save the Koopalings.

The human pirate reveals his name. His name is Guido. The evil monster's name was Bok Choy! He also has a son named Stir Fry. Guido then sails out to the ocean with the gang. Bowser calls Kammy Koopa to the pirateship, and Peach calls many Toads. Together, the entire gang renovated the pirate ship, and named it MARIO'S SHIP! It had rooms for all the gang, and a usable steering wheel, and places for friends to hang out. Kammy and the Toads went to a spot, and Mario and co. can go talk to them.

Similar to SMG2, there are 6 worlds and a special world. Each world holds a Koopaling (Iggy Koopa is available right from the start). Mario must steer the boat around, or switch characters. Before he gets a chance to start on World 1, a Polluted Piranha Plant shows up. Mario must defeat the Polluted Piranha Plant, and save Iggy Koopa.
