Mario & Luigi: The Eight Orbs is a video game released in 2011 for the Nintendo DS. It is another addition to the Mario & Luigi series. This game originally had a demo, but got cancelled.


Cackletta has been reborn by Fawful. Cackletta's evil plan is to get back at Mario and Luigi, by caputuring Peach. Bowser has also thought of capturing Peach, so it doesn't go to well. Bowser fights Cackletta for Princess Peach, but Wario ends up taking her and running. Waluigi sets out sleeping gas and Cackletta, the Toad Guards and Bowser fall asleep. Meanwhile, Mario and Luigi are out on a vacation, on a whole different island called RaShack island. It starts to rain, lighting strikes and the eight orbs fall from the sky. The blue orb lands in the ocean, the red one lands on Volcano Ridge, the green one lands on top the castle, the yellow one lands on Foresaken Island, the brown one lands in Swishy Swamp. The pink one lands in Tropical Forest, the purple one lands in Creepy Cove and the black one lands on Exile Rock. It tumbles off, and a green suited Koopa races for it. Lighting still flashes, and Luigi is scared, while Mario is pacing. Everyone on the island has their houses locked to protect themselves against the lightning. The sage Moikai comes to Mario and Luigi, and tells them that they need to get the eight orbs and bring them back and place them in the correct spots. Meanwhile Cackletta and Bowser decide to work together to get back at Mario and capture Wario, Waluigi, and Peach. Meanwhile, Popple doesn't think he should work and punches a Toad in the face and runs to get back. A time warp appears and Baby Mario and Baby Luigi pop out. Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Baby Wario and Baby Waluigi come out too. Mario and Luigi then decide to take care of the bunch. Daisy is back at the lab with Professor E. Gadd, inventing a portal creator that can take people and/or things back and forward in time, little do they know, a portal has appeared with the babies in it -  and they came out.
