That prehistoric bully, King Koopa, has returned to the Mushroom Kingdom in a flying doom ship. This time he's accompanied by his seven bratty, evil children: Wendy O. Koopa, Morton Koopa Jr., Roy Koopa, Iggy Koopa, Lemmy Koopa, Ludwig Von Koopa, and Larry Koopa. They have stolen seven wands from the seven kings of seven worlds: Grass Land, Desert Land, Water Land, Giant Land, Sky Land, Iced Land, and Pipe Maze. So Mario and Luigi are off to stop the Koopas. New features are at their aid: the simple touch of a leaf can transform Mario or Luigi into part-raccoon and it allows them to fly. If they obtain a raccoon suit, they can briefly turn into a statue, and more. The fate of the Mushroom Kingdom lies in the hands of the Mario Brothers. Can they defeat the seven Koopa kids and even King Koopa himself?

Did You Know?
The Koopa Kids were only named in American version. The Japanese version completely omits their names. See more
During the card matching game, Toad's quote should have read "Flip over any two cards and see if they match. Miss twice and you're out!", not "your out"; therefore, it is lacking an apostrophe. See more

Hey you! How about lending me your clothes? No dice? What a drag!
Nintendo of America released two different American versions of this game. The following is a list of the changes made to the first version:
- The original Japanese world names, which were used originally were changed to the following:
- "Desert Hill" became "Desert Land".
- "Ocean Side" became "Water Land".
- "Big Island" became "Giant Land".
- "The Sky" became "Sky Land".
- "Iced Land" became "Ice Land".
- "Pipe Maze" became "Pipe Land".
- "Castle of Koopa" became "Dark Land".
- A grammatical error present in Toad's N-Spades game, "Miss twice and your out!" was corrected and changed to "You can only miss twice!" in order to fit the screen.
- "Kuribo", the original Japanese name for "Goomba" was changed to the latter in the World 2 letter from Princess Toadstool.
- The game was re-released with these changes made, and most copies of the game are of the second version.
