In North America, Nintendo has started airing a brand new commercial for Mario Party 10. Called “amiibo Party”, it’s a pretty standard and not surprising TV ad, and unlike the Japanese one, Daddy Bowser is nowhere to be seen. However, it does showcase amiibo, which are used in the amiibo Party mode. They can unlock various special boards based on Super Mario characters like Mario, Peach, Toad or even Luigi and Rosalina.
Here is the new “Throw a party” commercial for Mario Party 10 (made by the Leo Burnett agency):
Nintendo also uploaded a second commercial along with the official version of the first one, this time focusing on the Bowser Party mode:
Mario Kart 8 (Wii U) comes out on March 12th in Japan, and March 20th in Europe and North America.
