                        ~1.The Star Festival~
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every 100 years, a huge comet flies above the skies of the Mushroom
Kingdom. When it does, the citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom run out to
collect the pieces of Star Bits that rain from the sky, then bring them
to the Castle where they are reborn into a giant Power Star. 

Such an event is happening this night, and Mario recieves a letter from
Princess Peach to meet her at the Castle. Mario, naturally, rushed off to
the Princess's Castle as the festivities were underway, but disaster
struck as Mario neared the Castle...

Bowser and an army of Airships come and tow away Peach's Castle, dragging
away Peach, and for the matter Mario, with it. Once in deep space, Mario
is blasted away from the Castle due to Bowser, yet finds himself on a
mysterious observatory after flying through the emptiness of space. Now he 
must traverse many wide galaxies searching for the stolen Power Stars 
taken from the Observatory due to Bowser in order to restore its power, and
allow Mario to rescue Peach from wherever Bowser is holding her.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        ~2.Controlling Mario~
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to control Mario may take several
minutes of getting used to, but you will rather like it once you are
accustomed to the controls of the game.

     -----------------Infared sensor. Point the Wii Remote at the screen
     V                in order to move the star-shaped pointer on the 
------------          screen move around. If you point the cursor at a Star
|  !       |          Bit, you will collect the Star Bit that you are
|Power     |          pointing at.
