With the focus on multiplayer, and especially local multiplayer, the Nintendo Switch looks like the perfect console for a Mario Party game. And yet, the next one is coming to… the Nintendo 3DS. Introducing Mario Party: The Top 100, which is (as the name implies) a collection of the 100 best mini-games from the Mario Party series… though we don’t know which criteria Nintendo used to choose the games.
We don’t have the complete list of mini-games, but here’s a few that have already been revealed:
- Shy Guy Says (from Mario Party)
- Slot Car Derby (from Mario Party 2)
- Eatsa Pizza (from Mario Party 3)
- GOOOOOOOAL!! (from Mario Party 4)
- Shy Guy Showdown (from Mario Party 5)
- Snow Whirled (from Mario Party 6)
- Balloon Busters (from Mario Party 7)
- At the Chomp Wash (from Mario Party 8)
- Logger Heads (from Mario Party 9)
- Jewel Drop (from Mario Party 10)
Mario Party: The Top 100 will be playable in local multiplayer, and will be compatible with Download Play (most likely via a free “app” available from the Nintendo eShop).
Here’s a trailer and the segment from the Nintendo Direct presentation (in Japanese, though…):
Finally, here’s some screenshots and artworks;
Mario Party: The Top 100 (3DS) comes out on November 11th in North America, December 28th in Japan, and January in Europe. It’s been added to the Upcoming Games page!
