Character Description Stats
Super Mario !

Of course, the most famous plumber of the Mushroom Kingdom is here!  Mario is the most balanced of all characters.  His special ability is the spin attack, which allows him to attack surrounding enemies.




Super Luigi ! Luigi is playable too!  He jumps higher than his brother but is rather weak.  His special ability is the high jump.  He can charge jumps to jump really high.




150px Wario is the strongest character in the game.  He hopes to get a good amount of money as a reward for saving peach.  His special ability is the Wario Shoulder from the Wario Land series.




Mario Party - Island Tour Waluigi Artwork Waluigi joins the action too!  Waluigi is the most awkward character in the game.  His special ability is the Waluigi Flight, which allows him to fly for a limited time by flapping his arms like wings.  He can only go forward and backward.





The story is the same as in Super Mario 64, where Peach invites Mario to eat a cake at her castle and is kidnapped, and Bowser steals all of the stars in the castle. The only difference is that this time she has invited Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi.
