Nintendo announces Mario Party: Star Rush at E3 2016

Hey Nintendo fans, remember those new “Super Mario” Amiibo figures the company revealed a day ago? Well, they’re going to launch alongside a new entry in the Mario Party series on November 4… Mario Party: Star Rush.

The “Rush” part of the title is quite apt, as every player in Mario Party: Star Rush will be able to take their turn at the same time, a first for the series. Players will also recruit familiar Nintendo characters to help them conquer the map:

This new Mario Party game for Nintendo 3DS takes the fan-favorite series in new directions to make it more fast-paced and portable friendly. The main mode, “Toad Scramble,” uses a new open style of map that allows up to four players to move around freely instead of traditional linear space movements. Also, because the four players roll dice at the same time, players no longer have to wait for others to finish their turns. Players pick different-colored Toad characters to navigate the game map, and familiar characters from the Super Mario series are scattered all over the map. As players encounter these characters, they will help the player throughout the game.

Mario Party: Star Rush is in development for the 3DS, and you can watch an extended gameplay demonstration with from Nintendo Treehouse team after the break. (more…)

Seven new Amiibo figures will be added to the “Super Mario” line in November

supermarioamiibo-e32016While Nintendo has put the majority of their E3 attention on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the consolemaker also unveiled a new wave of Amiibo figures that’ll be added to the “Super Mario” line on November 4.

While most of the figures are new designs for familiar characters (Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Wario, and Roaslina), a few are receiving the Amiibo treatment for the first time (Waluigi, Daisy, and Boo). These seven figures aren’t tied to a specific game, but they’ll be compatible with a wide range of Wii U and 3DS titles such as Mario Party 10 and Super Smash Bros. For 3DS/Wii U.

Nintendo will presumably add the figures to their Amiibo Compatibility Chart very soon.

UPDATE: The seven figures will also be compatible with Mario Party: Star Rush, which will be released for the 3DS on November 4.
