Mario & Wario is a puzzle game released in 1993 for the Super Famicom, exclusively in Japan. The game makes extensive use of the SNES Mouse accessory.

The game was previewed in Nintendo Power magazine, hinting that the game was planned to be released in North America, though it never was.[1]


Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi head to a set of woods to find the pixie said to live there. However, as they are searching, the group loses Luigi. The three others separate to search for him, but Wario flies overhead and drops a bucket onto Mario's head which he cannot pull off. Wanda, the pixie living in the woods, decides to help Mario find his missing brother.


Players can select between Mario, Peach, or Yoshi when playing the game. Rather than playing as that character directly, the player instead controls Wanda, using the SNES Mouse to guide the character, who has been blinded by a bucket being dropped on their head, through each stage to Luigi, who acts as the goal. Each character has a different walking speed: Peach is the slowest, Yoshi is the fastest, and Mario is average.
