Story[change | change source]

Bowser and the Broodals, a group of rabbits, kidnap Princess Peach and Tiara, and take them to Bowser's airship. Mario comes to rescue Peach, but he fails, being launched towards the Cap Kingdom. However, his hat stayed on the ship, and Bowser steps on it, and it flew to the back of the ship and it ripped.

But a hat named Cappy grabs a piece, and he flies to Mario to team up with him. Cappy uses the piece to look like Mario's old cap. The two go and collect Power Moons, and in the Cascade Kingdom, they find a ship, named Odyssey, making it work with Power Moons. The two climb aboard and chase Bowser, as they travel to various kingdoms. They fight bosses along the way and collect Power Moons to reach more areas.

They meet up with Bowser on The Moon in a cathedral, and Mario fights with him. Mario wins, but the battlefield breaks. Mario "captures" Bowser, using Cappy, allowing Mario to take over Bowser. Peach and Tiara jump on Bowser's shoulder, and escape the cavern. Bowser goes to propose to Peach again, and so does Mario. Peach rejects them both and gets on the Odyssey with Tiara and Cappy. Mario rushes to the Odyssey in time, leaving Bowser on the Moon.
