Plot[change | change source]

Princess Peach finds a map in an old town filled with crime. Mario sets off to the town of Rogueport, where he finds the Crystal Stars. There is a door deep in the sewers of Rogueport (the Thousand-Year Door) which will open if all the crystal stars are collected. It is said that a demonic spirit rests behind the door. The X-Nauts (a group of robot-like people) try to steal all of the crystal stars in order to awaken a evil demon to wipe out the planet so that they can become dictators of the world.

  • The last boss of the game is the Shadow Queen who possesses (takes over) Princess Peach.
  • Three shadows (The Shadow Sirens) are somehow related to the demon.
