Today’s Nintendo 3DS Direct revealed more info on Mario Party Star Rush, set for an European release on October 7th, along with new compatible amiibo.
I for one am looking forward to this. Mario Party Island Tour was a let down for many fans at the time, and the recent Wii U offering missed the mark as well. But having seen more footage of the new game today I am quite pleased with what I see.
It looks more fast paced and fun and we are told to except a more strategic gameplay than before. There are a lot more mini games in this one as well. Hopefully that will increase the replay value.
An update will be provided on release date for the game which allows you to play with up to four friends, but you only need one copy of the game. Making it easier to play with friends.
Only time will tell if this game will be the one that fans have been after for a while now. For me it lost its spark after the 6th instalment. Here’s hoping that Nintendo don’t let us down.
