☀ The story ☀
One faithful day King Bowser concieved of a genius plan to gain Princess Peach all to himself without Mario being able to save her, he quickly wnt to work. A few days later, Mario recieved a letter in the mail with an invitation to Quinto Island by the mayor of Quinto Town! But all was not what it seemed.
While his flight was of high class, with all the comforts one could wish, what he didn't realise was how he would land on the island. Once it came in sight, Mario was quickly swiped off his seat and thrown out of the plane, making a head-first landing onto one of the many shores on Quinto Island. With all his possessions still on-board he has no method of returning home anytime soon. Luckily he isn't alone on the Island!
Mario first meets Lady Plume at the shore he landed upon after his flight. She informs Mario that he came to the island at a very unfortunate time. The climate of the island has become rather cold lately and the island has almost completely lost its main power source, the Power Sparks, as a strange force has made the Sparks spread across the island. Mario, the good guy that he is, decides to help Lady Plume and the islanders get their Power Sparks back while also trying to find a way to return home to the Mushroom Kingdom.
What adventure will await him on the island?
