Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Bros. is a game available for download on the 3DS. It follows similar mechanics of regular Puzzle & Dragons Z games, including an overworld and story.
One day in the Mushroom Kingdom, Orbs suddenly started to appear around Peach's castle. Mario was invited to the castle in order to observe the Orbs. However, when he arrives, Peach has already been captured by Bowser and his minions. A nearby Toad gives Mario a letter from the Koopa King himself, daring the plumber to follow him to his own castle. The Toad also explains that Kamek is abusing the power of the Orbs, causing the entire Kingdom to overflow with them. Then he and Mario decide that using the Orbs' power themselves was the sure way they could save Princess Peach.
