It’s party time! Mario Party time, to be precise, as the latest installment of the series makes its way to Switch along with a massive list of other new titles.
Mario Party is one of those series’ that you either love or hate. That’s a weird thing to say about game starring the plumber, but then again it’s a game with Mario unlike any other. And after all, party games are not for every gamer.
This Mario Party too, is even more of an acquired taste, since it’s a collection of previously released mini-games. Nintendo says that classic boards and games from past installments are included here, 5 of them being from N64 Parties.
So if that’s not to your liking, it’s a good thing there’s a ton of other stuff hitting as well. Pokemon Cafe Remix also comes along this week, with Fatal Frame, WWZ, Dusk, and a load of smaller releases.
Scroll down for the full list.
