Toad's Quest is a upcoming platformer by Nintendo serving as a spinoff to the Mario series. It stars Toad as the main character instead of Mario.
One day in the Mushroom Kingdom, Bowser broke into the castle and grabbed Peach while she wasn't aware. Usually the Mario Bros. would of saved her, but Bowser had stolen them while they were sleeping, leaving only the helpless toads to defend. The kingdom was plunged into chaos, the police force now sent toads to jail for no reason, kids were taken from their parents, nothing was normal. Soon, the kingdom was only full of bandits with all the toads having moved out to find new lands to live in. Except for four toads, who went to save Peach and the mushroom kingdom.
The gameplay is mostly the same as the Mario games, you can run, jump, go in pipes, enter doors, etc. A new feature in Toad's Quest appears in world 2 once you obtain the Psychic Star, you can now fire a burst of pink light to temporarily stun enemies, and after world 4 you can even control Goombas & Koopas for a minute. Sometimes a boss level comes and changes a mechanic, but that mechanic usually doesn't appear for a bit.
