Terrible news interrupted Mario and Luigi while they are enjoying one lazy afternoon at their house. It is said that Princess Peach has been kidnapped! The two brothers’ headed straight for Bowser's castle to confront him and get her back. But to their surprise, Bowser is just as shocked about Peach's kidnapping as they are. Meanwhile, everyone was abducted by a strange top-hated villain, everyone, except Mario.


Peach and Bowser was forced by this mysterious villain to get married, that creates a rift of dark force threatening to tear apart the universe! The only one who can save the day is none other than Mario! Yet, he can't do it alone!
This game appeared at first glance to be a classic 2-D adventure that breaks out straight from the artistic pages of the Paper Mario universe but soon turns out into a hysterical 3-D action game, which is possible only on Wii!

Earlier, 2-D side-scrolling game play appeared to be reminiscent of New Super Mario Bros. But players will be constantly flipping between 2-D and 3-D, as soon as Mario learns the ability to flip between dimensions. To pass dangerous pits, search for hidden coins and passages, and even talk to characters that are visible only in 3-D.
