Shake It Up is a minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name may be a reference to the song "Shake It Up" by The Cars. It is both a 4-Player and a Duel minigame. To play the player holds the Wii Remote out and starts shaking it up and down. The game takes place in some sort of city.


A character goes over to a table with soda cans. The character grabs a soda can and walks back to where the three other players are (one in the Duel version). The minigame starts shortly after that.


The characters have to shake the soda can (with the Wii Remote) as fast as they can for five seconds. Then the characters open the can and soda comes flying up like a fountain. The character who shook the can the most makes the soda produce the biggest soda fountain of the two or four characters, and win the minigame. However, if no one shakes the cans, the minigame ends in a tie.


The winning character has a glass of soda in his or her hand and then do a winning pose, while still holding the soda. The three losers (one in the duel version) do (does) a losing pose. If no one shook the cans, the cans disappear and the players do their losing animations.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Shake your can of soda pop. After 5 seconds, everyone will open their cans. Make your can spew highest."
  • Hint"Don't get too crazy when shaking your can. Small, fast shakes do the trick better than big ones."
