Plot

Prologue

One day, Mario and Luigi were enjoying life at Peach's Castle. They were going to celebrate Princess Peach's 30 years on the throne. During the ceremony, however, Bowser crashes in and claims that it was his anniversary too. After Mario's tutorial fight, Bowser flees. Peach thanks Mario. After walking around to check if everyone is alright, and going back to the ceremony hall, Luigi tells Mario that he saw something. Luigi then directs Mario outside, where he notices a giant blue portal above the castle. Suddenly, a bunch of Rabbids fly out of it and spread across everywhere. Out of sheer panic, the Bros tell Peach that they will stop the madness, in which case, Peach sends out Starlow to help, in which she is much obliged to. They then start their grand adventure of our daily Mushroom Kingdom items being fused with these crazy Rabbids... Of which the last 2 were in red and green...

Definining Features

  • You control Mario & Luigi on the top screen, and the Rabbid Duo on the bottom. The 2 cannot be in the same place. If they are in the same place, then the duo you control will fade out the opposing team. If you switch in the same place, the screen quickly fades to black before switching. However, this is overruled in unintentional puzzles.
  • Most bosses in the Mario story are rabbid-themed enemies, while the Rabbid story focuses on Mario-themed enemies.
  • Hints to Kingdom Battle will be in as well.
