Get ready for a third helping of intense multi-player fun, for the Mario Party series is soon to become a trilogy. If you bought the first two Mario Party games, the obvious quesion is: "Why should I shell out more bucks for this one, too?" And Nintendo's answer is:

  • 70 all-new mini games
  • 10 different map boards
  • 20 items included for the 4-player mode
  • New "Action Event" board space
  • New "dual map" feature (somehow leads to one-on-one battles or something)
  • 4-player simultaneous action (as always)
  • Specially designed 1- and 2-player modes
  • Appearances by Waluigi and Daisy

Mini games
