Mario is the hero of our tale. Famous throughout the Mushroom Kingdom and beyond, Mario once again must save the world, this time from a strange group known only as the Smithy Gang. Mario is the first character in your party, and must always be present for combat. Mario's special moves all revolve around his renowned jumping ability and his ability to throw fireballs.
