Mario, Luigi and Peach decided to go on vacation to Dinosaur Land to relax and visit their old friend Yoshi. All stuff packed, they went to Peach's Castle, where the Toads have prepared a hot air balloon for them. They waved everyone farewell and set off to the tropical island.

Mario's story

Mario's story is basically the same as the original Super Mario World, but with different courses, bosses and objectives

After 2 days, the balloon safely landed on Yoshi's Island, right next to the green creature's house. Hoping to see Yoshi, the trio rushed towards the house, but when they entered, they saw Yoshi sitting on the floor. They asked: "What's happened?" and Yoshi answered: "Some freak with sunglasses kidnapped my girlfriend, Yoshene, and now I can't find her. But you're here, so maybe you'll help me out? Together, we can accomplish anything!". "Of course!" said Mario. When they were about to leave, Peach noticed, that Luigi is fast asleep on Yoshi's sofa. Having wondered for a while, they decided to leave him here until they return, as they were sure it their journey wouldn't take long. And so Mario, Yoshi and Peach set on their new adventure through Dinosaur Land.

1. Yoshi's Island Yoshi's Island, as its name implies, is the island, where Yoshis live. It's a peaceful place covered with green flourishing nature and a small pond, where the dinos fish. The Yoshi King's castle is on the northern edge. There's also a mountain on the west side with an ancient palace on top of it. Yoshi's House Yoshi's home. You can come here anytime to invite Yoshi to join you on your adventure. Also, there's always a Mushroom sitting on the table.

After defeating Boshi, the blue dinosaur said: "Very well. I see you're a strong fighter and a worthy opponent, but don't you think I'll be releasing Yoshene any time soon. She's mine and she will be mine forever!" With these words the kidnapper left. "I guess we have to go on and catch that guy again and also find the Yoshi King," said Peach. And so it was done - the heroes continued onward to the beautiful Honey Valley.

Luigi's story

Chronologically, Luigi's story takes place a year after Mario's story

Luigi woke up. He looked around and realised, that he doesn't know where he is. The plumber walked around the house and went outside. The house was standing in the middle of some unknown forest with berries growing on bushes and lying on the ground. The grass and leaves were brown and you could hear their sound, when the wind got stronger. Suddenly, he saw someone familiar coming over to him. It was Rosalina. When she got to Luigi, she said: "Mario and Peach have gone home long ago. This paradise land has been turned into a wasteland. You're all alone here, so you have to find a way to get off this island. But don't worry, I'll help you." And so Luigi and the star princess went searching for something, that could send Luigi back home.
