Mario Party Superstars Draws From Past Mario Parties And Features Online


Coming October 29 with button controls!http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/57526/mario-party-superstars-draws-from-past-mario-parties-and-features-onlineNintendo announced Mario Party Superstars today during their E3 Nintendo Direct stream. The game will draw on the franchise's entire series by including 100 minigames from past games, all with button controls. It will also include boards from past games too, and allow players to save mid-game to continue later. In a key addition, the game will support online play on the game boards!The game is scheduled for release on October 29 of this year, and is already available for pre-order.

I'm interested in the game, though i'm surprised that Nintendo thinks Peach's Birthday Cake was one of the best boards from the series. It's an OK board, but I actually think it's a really boring stage. Hopefully it will be more than just 5 boards (which is what they implied in the Direct), i'm worried because Super Mario Party only had 4 boards and that really limits replayability.

I'm a big fan of the older Mario Party games, and this was a really nice announcement. It comes across as a better version of the "Top 100" from a few years ago. I'd love to see some of the GameCube games get upgrades as well, those are my favorites. Perhaps someday.

Mop it up:
I still have all the games, so I'm not sure if there's anything here for me, but we'll see how it turns out.

For me it is the access to classic minigames and boards on a modern HD system with online compatibility. Super Mario Party was fine, and my nieces and nephews especially adore the game, but having a more classic experience for me and my gamer friends could be a nice companion game, though I wish it was just an add-on to the previous one so I had all of the boards and games together in one package.
