It's WALUIGI TIME!
Are you disappointed in that other game this holiday season doesn't have Waluigi? Then this is the game for you! This is THE must have game for Waluigi greatness!


What is Fortune Street?
Worlds collide with the famed Super Mario and Dragon Quest series team up to occupy Fortune Street. Much like the board game Monopoly, You snatch up properties, invest in shops, charge your foes and drain their bank accounts, and play the stock market like a true 80s businessman. Twists of fate and fortune pop up with every roll of the die!

Also, this is totally a candidate replacement for Mario Party once Hudson quits.

Yeah the games do take a long time, but all in all it's good fun. A great alternative to Mario Party.

Did you see the Yoshi Island map? They recreated the Yoshi's Island title screen, IN 3D, and it looks amazing!

Technically, he is in the game, just not as a playable driver.

I bet they didn't even go into the options menu to turn on all of the things that speed up the game.
If you take that long on most of the maps in this game, you most likely don't know how to play the game very well, and you haven't put any effort into doing better.

They turned on faster animations about halfway through, and even after discovering that just sinking a lot of money into properties and districts pays off generously, they kept trying to break up each other's districts with expensive buyouts.

It became hilarious as they slowly went from "this game is so slow and boring and it's Japanese Monopoly, I want to die," to, "OH SHIT DISTRICT D IS TANKING SELL YOUR SHIT IT'S BECOMING A FUCKING GHETTO, QUICK START DEVELOPING OVER HERE"

Excuse me? Luigi? The King of Second Bananas?

To be honest that's better than Waluigi, the second banana that almost never existed and thank goodness Nintendo made a Tennis game which required Luigi to have an evil twin.

Holy crap, Mario RPG music

Looks like a game not for me, but definitely interesting stuff.

Princess Princessa is probably the best character name ever.

Now all I want to know is the official name for the Prince of Cannock.

i hope this game is as engaging as mario party. when the first mario party was first talked about, i thought it was monopoly + mario characters. it turned out differently and now we get a real monopoly + mario characters.

He's so bizarre that some people like him. In the DS Mario Kart I was like, this guy is driving a forklift and has a weird accent? CRAZY.

Brawl in the Family is a webcomic that also popularized him, I think.

I mean, some people probably even like Tingle, but I think Tingle is creepier than Waluigi.

I thought Fortune Street did gangbusters in Japan usually though? Thought this one was only being brought stateside and to PAL regions because of all the Mario stuff possibly making all the hardcore financial stuff slightly less daunting for casual people.

also is this toastyfrog as in Jeremy Parish
