Everyone in the Mushroom Kingdom was invited to Peach's Castle for a party for the Star Festival. However, Bowser came in and called upon a giant barrier that surrounded the whole planet. Avoiding anyone to leave the planet nor get in. Luckily, Rosalina was in her Comet Observatory and saw everything. Pondering how to help her friends, Polari suggested her to cast the Rainbow Grand Star, the only artifact that could destroy that barrier. However, the Rainbow Grand Star was long ago split in seven pieces which are hidden in the other planets of the galaxy. As she was about to leave, a turquoise Luma called Mapi volunteered herself to aid her in her journey.
Will Rosalina and Mapi find the Rainbow Grand Star pieces and save the Mushroom Planet from Bowser's hands?

The game is similar gameplay-wise to the Super Mario Galaxy games. The worlds are represented by the 7 planets where the pieces of the Rainbow Grand Star are hidden. The planets are also divided in several sections. To finish a level, Rosalina must reach the flagpole or defeat the boss.
Rosalina is able to use the Star Spin and several power-ups, among them is the brand new Gum Flower. Unlike Super Mario Galaxy, where the player only had 3 HP, Rosalina has 8 HP, making the Life Mushrooms only able to recover all the Energy at once.
Once the player gets a 100% completion (Beating Story Mode, finding all exits and collecting all Comet Medals), Rosalina will be promoted to Galaxy Goddess and receive a new outfit.
