Super Mario Step is the first game developed by Power Productions, for the Nintendo Wii U and VR. It plays similarily to Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix. The game comes packaged with a dance mat, though you can play it with the D-Pad as well. Unlike DDR:MM, the game features a fan-made soundtrack. It was released on December 14th 2012 in Japan as "Mario Super Dance," November 29th in America, and December 1st in Europe as "Super Mario Stage." The game was planned to come out for Wii U first, but due to that system's later release, the game came out for VR first.


The game has 3 modes: The Story Mode, The Free Mode, and The Minigame Mode. In the Story Mode, you play as Mario or Luigi and travel across the overworld. You challenge other Mario characters to dance-offs and play minigames. In the Free Mode, you simply choose a song and play it. In the Minigame Mode, you play minigames that you've unlocked in the Story Mode.


The game starts with Mario and Luigi in their house (from the Paper Mario series) playing an untitled game on a dance mat, very similar to this game. Toad comes bursting through the door and screams that Bowser has not only kidnapped the Princess, but also stolen all the power-ups. Luigi freaks out and runs out the door. Naturally, Mario has to go find him. At this point, he finds him in a dark alley. Luigi tells him to run, but Mario doesn't listen. At this point, Wario drops down, crushing Mario. He challenges him to a dance-off. Mario wins and saves Luigi. From this point on, Mario and Luigi beat mini-bosses in dance-offs until they reach Bowser's Castle. When they do, Bowser uses all the power-ups on himself and challenges Mario/Luigi to a dance-off
