Ain’t no party like a Mario Party.
If the Mario Party series is ever going to get back on track, the upcoming Super Mario Party looks like it will be the best chance for that to happen. While Mario Party was once one of the most consistently fun multiplayer series in Nintendo’s arsenal, it’s star has fallen immensely with recent instalments all disappointing. Super Mario Party, however, looks like it brings back the fun that has been missing from newer games.
The new launch trailer for the game, which you can see for yourself below, makes me more hopeful still- it shows off the full range of modes the game will have, including online modes, which means you should be able to get some mileage out of the game even when people aren’t over. The actual mini games look like they will be fun enough as well, which further fuels my (admittedly cautious) optimism that this new game will not disappoint.
Super Mario Party launches on Nintendo Switch on October 5.
