Mario Party 10 comes out this Friday in North America (same day for Europe). To celebrate, Nintendo is going to host a “Virtual Launch Party” for the game on its social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more). It will take place tomorrow (March 18th) from 1PM PDT to 5PM PDT (4PM EDT to 8PM EDT), and with various virtual activities and a very special guest.
Players who take part in those activities on Twitter will be entered for a chance to be the winner of a Wii U and a Mario Party 10 + Mario amiibo bundle (there will be 5 winners). Nintendo will also select random winners at the end of each activity: they will receive a special gift that could very well include a Gold Mario amiibo.
To participate, all you have to do is use the #SweepsEntry hashtag, along with the designated hashtag (that will be revealed tomorrow).
Here’s the list of activities:
