The game begins with Sunny Starscout in a field, worried that she's late for Maretime Bay Day. She is about to head into town, but notices her bag is missing. After chasing down the bunny that stole her bag (which acts as a general tutorial), she meets up with Shimmerwings and Izzy Moonbow. Shimmerwings serves as a guide to help the player if they are unsure of where to go, while Izzy explains that Sunny can use her unicorn powers to "Unicycle" at tables and decorate for the festival or fix bridges along the way. Sunny fixes the bridge from the Crystal Brighthouse into Maretime Bay and heads to meet up with Hitch.
Hitch asks for Sunny's help with herding bunnies that have escaped and then challenges her to the first minigame, Bunny Herding. After helping out, Hitch lets Sunny into Main Street to help with the festival.
