The entire Mario gang is back for the seventh installment of the incredibly popular Mario PartyÂ® franchise. Players everywhere will set their controllers to fun as they run; jump; swim and fly through more than 80 new mini-games. But this party’s about to get a lot bigger…because EIGHT people will now be able to battle each other at one time. The microphone peripheral from Mario PartyÂ® 6 also makes a grand return â€“ and with the new Mic Grand Prix mode; there will be plenty of voice-over madness for everyone. The addition of two new playable characters; Dry Bones and Birdo will ensure that even seasoned Mario Party vets can experience a new world of wackiness.
- Explore the world with six brand-new game boards. As Marioâ„¢ and friends embark on an around-the-world cruise each board serves as an exotic port of call: Grand Canal Pagoda Peak Pyramid Park Neon Heights Windmillville and Bowser’s Enchanted Inferno. Each one should be a lovely vacation spot…but Bowser has other plans.
- Up to eight players can participate in the action â€“ four more than the previous Mario Party titles. In a four-player game each participant will have his or her own controller. In an eight-player match participants will share a controller.
- Mario Party 7 will feature 86 new minigames 11 of which use the Nintendo GameCube Mic. From leaping over electrified hurdles to avoiding a mole with a giant hammer each game is a party in itself. The addition of two new playable characters Birdo and Dry Bones adds to the fun.
