Soon after the start of Nintendo’s E3 Direct, Super Mario Party was revealed. It uses the Switch’s functionality: The trailer showed friends playing the game anywhere using the Joy Cons and screens. Multiple screens, sitting next to each other, could play the same mini game, and motion controls were used.
They’ve got quite a selection of mini games. If you’ve played Mario Party before, you’ll recognize the fun – and agony – that many of the mini games will have. There were tanks. There were races that required rapid shaking of the controllers. There was a barrel race. There were flying games with bullet bills. There was one where players had to avoid a charging chain chomp. It looks like Mario Party fare.
There are some new playable characters, like Goomba.
