Talking Day/Night Mini-Game Picnic Blues



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.
