This is gonna be fun. My friends and I are already at each other's throats after doing shells only on SNES Rainbow Road in MK7. With this new Mario Party, we just might end up killing each other...

Good to hear this news. It needs to have an online mode. If games are multiplayer focused nowadays, they should include some form of online for people who can't play with others locally.

Mario Party DS was great, better than MP 5-9, the handheld ones are always the best.

So happy! I hope the boards are bigger than they were in Mario Party DS.

Personally, I loved Mario Party DS. From the younger gamer's perspective, it's the best game to play with other friends on a long trip. And quite honestly, it was the last Mario Party to have roots to the original gameplay. After that, it started to turn into "Find one in a random treasure box" or "Everyone get together in the same car, and get these smaller ones instead". I hope this one will have some old-fashioned gameplay.

The one on the DS is actual one of my favorites, so this one might turn out well for a Mario Party game. Hopefully they try something new, while also keeping classic modes available.

Ah yes, Mario party... the most friendliest way to destroy entire family relationships, and warp the perception of friendship.  All while Waluigi laughs in our face...

Mario Party should be a real board game cause when someone gets like a 100 stars out of nowhere and you start hating you friends you can flip that shyt up and go play bf.

@warhawk-smakaho Yes. Definitely. With all these 3DS games being announced, there must be at least some Wii U games because there's none right now.
