Long after the previous battle with King Bowser Koopa, the Mushroom Kingdom was safe again. Mario went to sleep one night and had a strange dream: He, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Toadstool arrived in a strange world called Subcon, filled with strange beings, like snakes that spit bullets, walking cacti, and birds that drop bombs. Also, the land is ruled by the mean Wart, a mutant lizard who hates vegetables, so once again Mario and Luigi, with Toad and Princess Toadstool must stop evil, wherever it is lurking: in the ice lands, in the woods, high in the sky, in caverns, in magic doors, and finally come face to face with Wart. This is not an easy mission, but then again it's all just a dream...or is it?

Did You Know?
In Japan, Birdo was called "Catharine", a named "HE" preferred to be called, according to the Japanese booklet. Controversy surrounds the character, as it once remained unclear as to if there was simply ONE Birdo, but there are 3 different colors of Birdo--there is a species of Birdo, as referred to in the SUPER MARIO BROS SUPER SHOW, which is based around Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros 2(though the Canon isn't verified). IN later Mario titles (spinoffs), there is one main Birdo, usually paired with Yoshi (another species that has one Main named character, but also has multiple colors of its species, like Birdo(s)).

During the character credits, Ostro and Birdo's name's are switched, leaving Ostro's picture labeled "Birdo" and Birdo's picture labeled "Ostro." The game's instruction manual also contains this error. See more

- A new opening area
- There are now over sized Shyguys and vegetables.
- Each stage has five red coins
- A new Yoshi Mode, where there are two Yoshi eggs hidden in each stage's Subcon areas
- Each boss Talks to you before you fight them
- The World 3 level 3 boss is now an oversized mechanical Birdo.
