Inspired by original Mario Party™ board gameplay, the beloved series is coming to Nintendo Switch™ with new mini games and play styles that make use of the Joy-Con™ controllers. The Super Mario Party game includes features, such as character-exclusive Dice Blocks, that add depth to players' strategy. Up to four players* take turns rolling the dice and individually race across the board searching for stars.

Super Mario Party is a package of fun game modes designed for having fun with friends and family. Gaming today is a largely solitary experience. Super Mario Party is reminiscent of what made gaming so popular decades ago, experiencing games together. There is nothing like sitting down on the couch and learning the game, laughing together, and sometimes yelling at the competition while in the same room. Super Mario Party paired with the Nintendo Switch taps into those nostalgic experiences from arcades and early game consoles.
The game uses the Switch’s hardware in interesting and creative ways. Being able to play with a single Joy-Con means you always have a 2 player set up on hand wherever your bring your Switch. The game features multiple game modes to change up the experience, allowing for competitive and cooperative gameplay. The mini games are fun and easy to learn.
There are a few drawbacks to the game. While playing together in the same location is the ideal way to experience this game , in 2018, the lack of online options are certainly noticed. There are bare bones online options to playing individual mini games online with strangers, but nothing beyond that. Not being able to play a full round of Mario Party with friends online is a disappointment. While you can play against computer controlled characters, the lack of online essentially makes the game not worth playing unless you have a room full of people to join you. Nintendo is always behind in the online space, and this game is no exception. Additionally, the lack of Pro Controller support is frustrating. You must have an additional set of Joy-Con if you plan on playing with more than 2 people.
Overall, I’d recommend purchasing this game if you regularly have people around to game with. It can be an absolute blast with the right group of people.
This is a very fun game to play with friends and family. The mini games are very addicting and easy to learn. This has completely changed our family game nights and nights over with friends. If you like Mario Kart, you will probably like this game.
The only drawback is that it only works with Joy-Cons, not Pro Controllers. So you if you plan on playing with 4 people, you will need to have 4 Joy-Cons. Other than that, no complaints.
Tired of losing in Fortnite to a marshmallow addicted 6 year old? Mario Party is a game that can even the field with cooperative and competitive play. The joycon is often used like a wii mote, remember the Wii? Your 6 year old nephew has never seen one even playing field it is.
Such a fun game! The computer players are not "playing any games" in this version. They are there to win. Even on "normal" difficulty. I don't mind it though. It is good competition! Not to mention in the older Mario party games, if you had a computer player as a partner in a mini game, you would usually lose. Not the case now. They actually help you. I became tired of beating my husband and daughter. Now I have stiff comp. lol
