The "Old Days" were times where the Mushroom Kingdom lived in a time of prosperity. During these times, Princess Peach ruled from her throne, the Super Mario Brothers served as heroes in the land, the Koopas, lead by the mighty Bowser plagued the kingdom, but were constantly stopped by Mario and Luigi. However, these times were ended when the Cannibal, Kirby, came to the kingdom and started a reign that would result in the deaths of many innocent people. Although Kirby was captured and incarcerated at Petal Meadows Asylum, what he did destroyed the once prosperous and blissful kingdom and turned it into a nation of poverty, crime, and fear.
