Grab your friends and get ready to party because today we are talking about Super Mario
Party for the Nintendo Switch. This is the latest in the Mario Party franchise and features several new and fun ways to play! POST RECORDING UPDATE: Nintendo just announced that Mario Party Superstars will be releasing on October 29th! If you enjoy this sort of gameplay keep your eyes peeled and enjoy the rest of the video!
Super Mario Party features four game boards, all with their own distinct style. You move around the board by rolling a die and then playing one of 80 competitive mini games such as Can Take Pancake, where players are awarded points for how many flapjacks they can take off a plate in the center of the screen. The player needs to use flexibility and adapt to changing circumstances because the type of game and how it is played with the other players varies depending on board position and the roll of the dice. Players will also need to use their focus because each mini game has a different objective and sometimes a limited amount of time in which to complete it.
The latest addition to Super Mario Party is the ability to play with other people online. The player will need their self-awareness skills because voice chat can be enabled and it is super easy to lose your temper when someone steals a victory from you or is awarded the most stars at the end of the game.
