Mario Party 13 is the 19th installation of the Mario Party series. The game's theme is focusing on a festival in the Mushroom Kingdom.


The annual Mushroom Festival is in town. The Mario gang decide to visit the festival and have some fun, but when stuff doesn't go through somebody's orders, there is trouble. Hours later, Bowser and the Koopalings attack the festival. It's up to the Mario gang to save the Mushroom Festival and defeat Bowser once and for all.
