The Hero, living in obscurity in the small village in the mountains, sits down to dinner, and he wonders about what companions will join him on his journey. So begins the Chapters of the Chosen, which leads you on four separate stories, setting up the fifth and ultimately epic fifth chapter, where the Hero will find these people as he attempts to down the Lord of the Underworld!
Bowser's children (from different games no less!) show up at Princess Peach's Birthday, spiriting her away! It is up to you to go after them, saving her through eight worlds of mayhem!
This is a great adventure, and thanks to the multiplayer that Nintendo added in, I am joined by my good friend Rudi, who will help me traverse all obstacles, getting all the Star Coins, and getting Peach back... yet again!
