E3 2018: Mario Party Makes Its Switch Debut with Super Mario Party

It’s no surprise that Mario Party and its board-focused, mini-game antics are finally making an appearance on Nintendo’s current platform. But what was most interesting of all during the trailer Nintendo put out was what seemed to be the ability to link more than one Switch console to expand, even alter, the layout of particular mini-games.

Though unclear on how much this mechanic integrates into the overall gameplay of Mario’s latest Party entrant, but away from this there was confirmation that the game will support local co-op too with two consoles being able to link together supporting up to four players. Mini-games too will also see the use of Joy-Con motion controls. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how all this comes together when Super Mario Party launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on October 5. Check out the announcement trailer below.
