Party guests can get the full experience.
Nintendo just announced some exciting news ahead of 'Mario Party: Star Rush's October 7th release date. The Japanese publisher has revealed that only one player will need to own a copy of the Nintendo 3DS exclusive in order for multiplayer to be enjoyed by up to four layers. This is made possible by the release of a free software called 'Mario Party: Star Rush – Party Guest.'
The latest 'Mario Party' will also feature some new modes that differ from the traditional gameplay. In Toad Scramble mode, players will forego the turn-based gameplay that has been a staple, and instead move freely across an open map as a Toad. Nintendo claims this will lead to "faster and more strategic matches." Other modes include Coinathlon, which focuses purely on mini-games, and Balloon Bash, which gives players a limited number of moves. This means that players will have to carefully plan each move in order to trade coins for stars.
'Mario Party: Star Rush' releases October 7th exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. The party game will launch alongside amiibo figures of Donkey Kong, Rosalina, Wario, and Boo. On November 4th, three additional figures (Diddy Kong, Daisy and Waluigi) will be released.
