Storyline[edit | edit source]

The game starts out with Mario/Luigi walking on the cup at the Star Tournament. Various characters are cheering for them. Mario and Luigi destroy each team with ease. Wario/Waluigi then appear and challenge the Mario Bros. to a challenge. A faceoff between Waluigi and Luigi occur, and Mario has to break it up. A light is summoned, and Bowser falls from above on to the court and taunts all 4 of the characters, with Boo backing him up. Then they all start cheering, until a bob-omb explodes on them.
