A Stork delivering twin babies to the Mushroom Kingdom was ambushed by Kamek the Magikoopa. He swiped the babies from the Stork's beak, but in his haste he dropped one.

Yoshi was taking a walk around Yoshi's Island when a small bundle landed on his back. A baby wearing a red hat poked out its head. Yoshi rushed back to the other Yoshis who agreed to carry Baby Mario back to his brother.

Make Eggs, throw Eggs, Pound the Ground and Flutter Jump. Transform into different vehicles and battle gigantic enemies and bosses all the while protecting Baby Mario from Kamek and his Toadies.

Secret Message

In Stage 3-2: Jungle Rhythm, just after the first ? Cloud is a small indentation in the ground. Stand there to make a ? Cloud appear and hit it with an egg to make a switch appear. Hit the switch to make an arrow pointing to a hidden pipe appear and go down it. In this area is a Message Box. Hit it for a secret message from the development staff:

"We, the Mario team poured our hearts and souls into creating this game for your entertainment. It is full of secrets. Enjoy."
