Mario Party Superstars
Mario Party Superstars is an upcoming installment in the Mario Party series for the Nintendo Switch set to be released on October 29, 2021, and is the twenty-fifth installment in the series overall. It is also the twelfth installment to be released on a home console, and the second installment to be released on the Nintendo Switch. The game follows the same gameplay style as its predecessor Super Mario Party and earlier installments in the series. It features 100 minigames from past games in the series, similarly to Mario Party: The Top 100, as well as five boards from the Nintendo 64 Mario Party games. All game modes are available to play online.
Mario Party Superstars is the first game published by Nintendo on one of their consoles to be officially localized in Brazilian Portuguese.
Mario Party Superstars features minigames and boards from past Mario Party titles while retaining the overall game engine and several features from Super Mario Party. Players take turns hitting the Dice Block and moving around the board in order to collect coins and Stars, and once every player has rolled a minigame will be played, allowing the players to earn coins. Much like games prior to Mario Party 9, the Dice Block rolls 1 through 10 instead of only 1 through 6, though character-specific Dice Blocks from Super Mario Party do not return. Items can be obtained from Item Spaces or Item Shops and are generally based on the items seen in Super Mario Party. The boards generally retain their original layout, though some have been updated to include new path layouts and Item Shops, such as Peach's Birthday Cake. Some of the board events have also been adjusted. Minigame Spaces are conceptually similar to VS Spaces from Super Mario Party, as the landing player hits a Dice Block to determine how many coins each player must put into the pot, though instead of playing a Rumble Minigame, a Free-for-all Minigame is played, similarly to Battle Spaces from older entries. During the last five turns, the coins gained or lost from Blue Spaces and Red Spaces are doubled, and two players landing on the same space will embark in a Duel Minigame, betting coins like in Mario Party 3.
Like in Super Mario Party, players can practice a minigame on the explanation screen before starting the real minigame.
The game features five boards from the Nintendo 64 Mario Party titles.
The game is set to have 100 minigames from previous Mario Party titles, much like Mario Party: The Top 100. There are currently 60 confirmed.
