The Mario Party fun continues later on this year in this special collection of Nintendo 64 boards that have been adapted and remade for Nintendo Switch. Mario Party Superstars may not be a full-blown entry, but it still lets you try your hand at all the party game shenanigans in a series of minigames where the tide can change very quickly. Your ultimate goal is to grab as many stars as possible before the game’s end. How you get there is entirely down to the luck of the dice!
Mario Party Superstars arrives exclusively on Nintendo Switch this October 29th, landing in just in time for the end-of-year festivities. It’s a game ideal for all family members because it will have you using your Joy-Con controller in lots of ridiculous ways, whether it’s trying to be the last character standing in Mushroom mix-up or trying to keep your feet on the ground in the Space Land board.
If you’re a veteran Mario party fan, odds are that one of your favourite minigames from the series make its grand return here in Mario Party Superstars. Shy Guy Says, Boulder Ball, Leaf Leap and other classic games reappear, forcing groups of four to go head-to-head in the effort to gain the most coins. More coins means more chances to gain stars – and you’re always guaranteed to have fun doing it in Mario Party Superstars.
Mario Party Superstars makes it easy to play as iconic characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, with folk like Luigi, Peach, Bowser and even a Goomba being a playable character. As is usually the case, each playable character retains a die that’s unique to them. They feature different numbers on all six sides to potentially give players a helping hand.
Super Mario Party for the Nintendo Switch is a solid entry into the classic party game franchise, but players were rightly irked that only select mini-games work online. Luckily, Mario Party Superstars remedies this by making all included games compatible with online play, for those unable to play locally on one Switch in the same room. You can now even save turns to pause and take a break.
