1st August, 2018 – Visitors to Nintendo’s booth at gamescom in Cologne, Germany this year are in for a treat, as they’ll be the first to try some of the fun new minigames in Super Mario Party, as well as being able to go hands-on with other upcoming Nintendo Switch software, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and more.
Coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch on 5th October, Super Mario Party brings the original board game mode back to its roots as four players race across the board searching for Stars, taking advantage of deeper strategic additions like specific Dice Blocks for each character to use. Additional game modes, such as Toad’s Rec Room that pairs up two Nintendo Switch consoles, plus the Online Mariothon minigame gauntlet, make this one party where everyone can enjoy themselves, and visitors to Nintendo’s booth in Hall 9 can try out five of the new minigames themselves as a taster of the fun that awaits.
Other playable titles available throughout the show’s run from Tuesday 21st August until Saturday 25th August include:
