The party is just getting started.
During the Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo revealed Mario Party Superstars at E3. Although the Switch is already the home to Super Mario Party, the new title will feature some additions and returning features with a bit of a twist. Rather than offering a slate of new boards and mini games, Mario Party Superstars will instead remaster a “superstar collection of boards and mini games” from the franchise’s past.
Mario Party Superstars launches October 29th and collects together 5 boards from the Nintendo 64 era of Mario Party. Some of those levels include Peach’s Birthday Cake and Space Land. At launch the game will also support online which is the first time it has been done for the franchise. Super Mario Party wouldn’t have online support until years after its release.
Mario Party Superstars will be an improvement in almost every single way over Super Mario Party, though we’re sure there are some out there who would rather play with a brand new collection of maps and mini-games instead of remastered version of those from the previous titles.
Mario Party Superstars is launching for the Nintendo Switch on October 29th, with pre-orders open today through the Switch eShop.
