This is the very first game of Viva Piñata ever created. The task is to recreate a garden and attract over 60 species of piñata to the garden and tame them so they become yours to control.
On Piñata Island there have been many gardeners who have looked after piñata for a long time but there was one who was the best, Jardiniero. However a man named Lester destroyed the garden with the help of four Ruffians. Then the player arrives on the island and has been hired to put the garden back in working order however there are sours, Ruffians and Dastardos to deal with.
