Put your Switches together for a Joy-Con party!

Nintendo revealed that Super Mario Party will be the next entry in the party game franchise. The Direct Tuesday showed a new tank minigame with split screen and gameplay among multiple Switch consoles. The trailer showed Switch consoles playing side by side on a table.

Pom-Pom, Diddy Kong, Dry Bones, Goomba, Shy Guy, Bowser, Bowser Jr., and Boo are notable playable characters in Super Mario Party. Also, there appears to be some "recruiting" of other characters like in Mario Party Star Rush on the Nintendo 3DS, as seen when Mario has a "Yoshi Dice Block". Yoshi and Rosalina appear to be following Mario, but they aren't among the 4 player characters in the HUD.

Super Mario Party will release on October 5, 2018.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this game shapes up. Mario Party is always a hit around here.

Maybe it's because I haven't played anything in this series recently, but the mini games they showed actually looked fun and interesting. I'm interested. I've got a niece with a Switch who'd enjoy playing the two-switch games, too.

It looks like a traditional experience again so that is a big plus.

The tank battle where you can change how the map looks by how you connect two switches is intriguing but I can't see that get used too often.

I see a number of similarities to the previous recent games, so I'm guessing this is Nd Cube making this. But I also see some differences.

If you're looking for some Mario Party in the meantime, I'd recommend checking out Mario Party 9. It's a lot of fun and one of our faves.

I recommend Mario Party DS personally. Maybe it will finally be surpassed as the best handheld Mario party
