What does it take to be a Super Star?
According to Toad, a Super Star will need strength, energy, courage, kindness, and to head out into adventure. The one who comes out on top during that adventure is the biggest star, aka the Super Star

-On the board Peach’s Birthday Cake, you can now purchase small strawberries to plant, they cost 5 coins and will steal 6 coins
Overall, there’s already so much to be excited about because there are now three very balanced boards out of the five announced. We’ve already seen two of them in Peach’s Birthday Cake and Space Land, which have both received their own new and unique remake additions. Classic items are returning and the inclusion of the Chain Chomp Whistle really opens up the game imo, NDcube has added their own spaces and little adjustments here and there to the boards to bolster gameplay to new heights. And there will be 100 minigames across the series (MP1-MP10) to return in brand new form in Mario Party Superstars
The game features online matchmaking, which will be a first in the Mario Party series. Saves between turns are also back, which ensures that we can stop and return to a saved game any time we’d like
I might be the most hyped out of anybody for Mario Party Superstars, so definitely expect some updates and insights ITT!
