Mario Party: Star Rush comes out in roughly two weeks in Japan, which means that it’s now available for pre-loading from either Nintendo’s website or the Nintendo eShop. As always, pre-loading allows you to start downloading the game right away, and therefore be able to start playing at 10PM JST on October 19th.
But to pre-load Mario Party: Star Rush, you need at least 3 001 blocks / 375MB of free space on your SD Card (3 018 blocks / 377MB for the European version, but there’s no pre-loading available in Europe…).
Here’s some “technical” details about the game:
- Genre: Party Game
- Players: 1 (Single Player), 2 to 4 (Local Multiplayer)
- Local Multiplayer: from 2 to 4 players. Compatible with Download Play, but there are restrictions (limited number of playable characters and maps). To get rid of those restrictions, you can play using the Mario Party: Star Rush – Party Guest “demo”, available from the Nintendo eShop. That way, you will get the full Local Multiplayer experience, as if everyone had their own copy of the game
- Download size: 3 001 blocks / 375MB (Japan) — 3 018 blocks / 377MB (Europe)
- Save data: 1
