Super Mario Party is an upcoming game in the Mario Party series, set to be released for the Nintendo Switch on October 5, 2018. It will be the eleventh home console installment in the series. It is the first home-console Mario Party game to not be a numbered installment since the original Mario Party game.
Described by Nintendo as a "complete relaunch" and "complete refresh" of the Mario Party series when revealed at E3 2018, the game "goes back to the four-player basics as you take turns and race across the board searching for Stars" as seen in the Mario Party installments prior to Mario Party 9, but also incorporates elements from the more contemporary Mario Party games, including the "ally" mechanics from Mario Party: Star Rush. Additionally, the game takes advantage of Nintendo Switch hardware for its minigames, such as flicking the Joy-Con as if it was a frying pan handle. Players can even link multiple Nintendo Switch consoles together for a single, larger alteration of the display for the game. The game is the first installment in the Mario Party franchise to incorporate online play, though this feature is restricted only to minigames.
Super Mario Party reverts to the traditional way of playing Mario Party, where four players take turns to navigate around a linear board dictated by how much they have rolled through the Dice Block. When a character lands on a space, they receive effects dependent on what the space is. They can also spend coins to buy items from Flutter which can help them or hurt other players. The game borrows the ally mechanics from Mario Party: Star Rush where players can increase their team of characters by collecting party members who spawn throughout the board.
The game can be played with one Joy-Con. The game is also compatible with local wireless play.
These are the game modes confirmed for Super Mario Party so far.
