When Mario, Peach and an entourage of her loyal Toad friends set out for a tropical vacation on lovely Isle Delfino, they're in store for much more than a relaxing holiday. A mustachioed maniac has mucked up the entire island, and Mario is accused of committing the crime. Armed with a hi-tech water cannon called FLUDD (Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device), Mario sets out to clean the island, clear his name, and solve the mystery of the villainous vandal.


* Explore expansive worlds crawling with interactive characters and tough challenges for Mario to accomplish.

* Use FLUDD to clean up sludge pools, attack enemies, hover through the air and more. Special nozzle attachments scattered throughout the island provide even more ways for FLUDD to come in handy.

* Ride on Mario's trusty pal Yoshi and gobble up fruit located throughout the island. While riding Yoshi, Mario has even more special moves and abilities.

* Collect 120 Shine Sprites on your quest to help Mario restore peace to Isle Delfino!

Like Super Mario 64, Mario has many things to accomplish in each area of Isle Delfino. Every time Mario completes a task, he is rewarded with a Shine Sprite. Mario's missions include battling giant Piranha Plants, navigating treacherous platform challenges, solving mysteries, collecting Blue Coins, and many more. As Mario collects Shine Sprites, new areas of Isle Delfino are unlocked. This is Mario's biggest challenge ever!

Luckily, Mario isn't alone. Princess Peach and her entourage of Toads aren't much help, but the island's natural population of Yoshis sure are! Mario can ride multi-colored Yoshis throughout the island, using their tongue-slurping strength to accomplish various tasks. Other familiar characters make cameos throughout the game, along with a wide variety of all-new characters.
