Nintendo revealed the first Mario Party for Nintendo Switch today during their E3 Direct, and it is coming October 5. Nintendo is also looking to shake up the Party series by incorporating the Switch’s features and allowing you to play the game in exciting new ways. My favourite is combining two separate Switches to play various games.
Not only that but Nintendo is using every part of the console, as the Joy-con is being taken advantage of by using the HD Rumble and motion controls in new ways for different games.
The Mario Party series is coming to the Nintendo Switch system with super-charged fun for everyone! The original board game style has been kicked up a notch with deeper strategic elements, like specific Dice Blocks for each character. The game also introduces all-new ways to play, including Joy-Con controller, enabled minigames, and new modes to enjoy with family and friends. Board gameplay goes back to the four-player basics as you take turns and race across the board searching for Stars. You can also pair up two Nintendo Switch systems and delight in this dynamic play style, such as in the new Toad’s Rec Room mode. With new modes and new minigames coupled with original board gameplay, the party starts anywhere, anytime, and with all kinds of players.
