With her magic, Princess Toadstool was able to break the magic spell and restore the Mushroom Kingdom to its former glory. But Bowser is back.

Once again, you are Mario! It’s up to you to save the Mushroom People from the black magic of the Koopa! Stomp on Goombas and rescue Princess Toadstool from the clutches of Bowser before the Mushroom Kingdom is changed forever!
