Mario Party Superstars isn’t exactly the follow-up to Super Mario Party, but rather a jump back in time throughout the mini-games and boards of the Mario Party games of yore. The newest addition to the Mario Party family, Nintendo announced the game during its E3 2021 showcase.
It will include over 100 mini-games from across the series, all of which support button controls. It will also include online play from launch, a feature that was only recently added into the most recent release in the mainline Mario Party franchise.
The trailer also digs into some of the quality of life upgrades we’ll be able to enjoy with Mario Party Superstars, such as being able to matchmake with random players online, save your progress mid-game and use stickers to communicate with other players.
It is worth noting that though the mini-games will be from games across the series, the five boards included in Mario Party Superstars will all be from the N64 era. Mario Party Superstars is slated to launch on October 29, 2021 and you can currently pre-order it from the Nintendo e-Shop. Stay tuned for more.
