Talking Day/Night Mini-Game Picnic Blues
PARTY ALL DAY AND NIGHT
WITH MARIO PARTY 6 FROM NINTENDO
Sequel Features New Game Boards and Lightning-Fast Action
REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 6, 2004 - Good parties may run late, but
great parties run all night - and all day with Mario Party(R) 6, which
launches today exclusively for Nintendo GameCube(TM). Players can keep
the party going indefinitely with this rowdy new party game.
Players move familiar characters like Mario(TM) and Donkey Kong(R)
around six new game boards, and can enjoy 80 new party-rockin'
mini-games, some of which change as time passes from day to night.
Mini-games have always been at the heart of Mario Party fun, and this
new installment of the franchise keeps the tradition going.
"Whether you're a night owl or an early bird, this is the game for
you," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice
president of marketing and corporate communications. "With the
holidays fast approaching, Mario Party 6 has family-friendly action,
making it the perfect game for holiday entertaining, appealing to
every party animal in the family."
In Mario Party 6, players can move around the game board faster
than ever before, providing the inspiration to keep the action going
all day and all night. With the multiplayer functionality of Mario
Party 6, up to four players can participate in the action as they
compete to see who will win and be crowned champion.
The latest development in video games has players interacting with
and playing games in new and exciting ways. Mario Party 6 keeps this
trend alive through the use of a cool new accessory: the Nintendo
GameCube Mic, packaged with the game at no extra charge. The
microphone plugs into a memory card port and allows players to control
certain mini-games using voice commands. Mario Party 6, Rated E for
Everyone, is available now at an MSRP of $49.99.
