Mario Party Island Tour Box

Remember Mario Party 10/3DS, the new 3DS exclusive Mario Party game that was announced at a Nintendo Direct early this year?  The one which I even feared had fell off the radar altogether due to the complete lack of information about it? Well it seems like we’ve finally got some new information about it, including the box art, release date and even things like official artwork.  So the information drought is now over! First of all, the release date.  This game will be released in the US on November 22nd 2013, and just November 2013 in other regions. Secondly, here’s the box art: Which looks pretty good if I say so myself. Finally, here’s some artwork of the game, which […]

What Happened to Mario Party 3DS?

A few months back, a new Mario Party game was announced for the 3DS at a certain Nintendo Direct event.  It was shown to have Augmented Reality using mini games, a system based around racing rivals to the finish line rather than the standard board game navigation or car gameplay of the first nine games and some pretty interesting levels based on games like New Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Galaxy (with one level being a reference to Rainbow Road from Mario Kart too).  Here was the trailer: But since then, what the hell happened to it?

Might we see Mario Party 10 this year?

We may have a Mario Party title for 3DS as revealed at Nintendo Direct, but is it also possible we might be seeing a 10th home console game in the series being released this year as well?  I think it’s fairly plausible based on the history of the series so far. For example, back in 2003 we had Mario Party e in February 2003, and Mario Party 5 in November 2003.  In March 2003 we had Mario Party Advance while we then got Mario Party 7 in November of the same year.  And in 2007, the release date gap between Mario Party 8 and Mario Party DS was absolutely tiny, with the former being released in May and the latter […]

Has Nintendo Finally Began Using Augumented Reality Again?

Mario Party AR Mini Game

If you’ve been reading Nintendo 3DS Daily for a while now, you may remember that I wrote an article about how the 3DS’s AR features were going ignored by Nintendo and how so few games seemed to make any real use of them.  If you missed it the first time, you can read that article here: Has Nintendo Give up on Augumented Reality Article But now that Mario Party 3DS and this whole ‘Photos Together with Super Mario’ thing have been announced, could it be the case that Nintendo are finally ready to actually do something with the feature.  I think so, and I think that the way Mario Party is implementing this whole Augumented Reality business shows that Nintendo […]

Nintendo Direct; My Thoughts on It All

Broque Monsieur Meets Mario and Peach

Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct sure was something.  You had a new Zelda game announced in the same style as A Link to the Past, a new Yoshi’s Island and even more footage of Mario & Luigi Dream Team Bros to round it all out among a ton of other stuff.  But here are my thoughts on each of the games and announcements from yesterday. Mario & Luigi Dream Team First game up is Mario & Luigi Dream Team Bros, and I have to say I find myself super excited for it.  There are two reasons for this. The first is that the game actually adds new content, places and characters.  Considering that the best part of any Mario & Luigi game […]

Well, it’s probably going to be called that given that it’s a brand new Mario Party game that’s being released on the 3DS before the end of the year, but it’s not official.  But wait!  Before you act like this is an average announcement, please keep something in mind! They removed the car gimmick in general and made the boards work more like the levels from a normal Mario game!  Our major problems with Mario Party’s formula are basically over! Yes, not only does everyone move independantly again with the classic formula from the first eight games, but they’ve actually gone and made the boards based off actual Mario locations!  Like Rainbow Road from the Mario Kart series or the […]

Is Nintendo Working on Mario Party 10?

Mario Party 9

Ever since Mario Party 9 was a success in 2012 and the Wii U concept lent itself very well to the Mario Party series, people have been wondering when a new Mario Party game would be released for the Wii U.  But could this day really be coming soon?  A domain Nintendo owns might well suggest it could. Yes, Nintendo apparently own the domain name ‘MarioParty10.com’.  Go to the address and it redirects you to Nintendo’s official website.  And a quick WHOIS lookup suggests that the domain was indeed registered to Nintendo of America by standard Nintendo associated company Melbourne IT: http://whois.net/whois/marioparty10.com So could this be evidence of a new game?  It’s not the only Nintendo owned URL that hints […]
