Mario Party: The Top 100 announced

I just came here to do what many others have already done and vent about the stupidity of not putting this on the Switch. Having played a number of Mario Parties, this would have been the perfect couch multiplayer game for my wife and I. A mix of nostalgia and fun antics. Even my parents would have thoroughly enjoyed it when we visit. The decision to not put this on the Switch is stupid, baffling, and just pisses me off. I'd say "Nintendo gonna Nintendo", but it shouldn't have to be like that.

Oh well. Nintendo gonna Nintendo
 
Would have been cool to have boards from various MP games. Like a true Mario Party All-Stars sort of feel to it.

$40 for a mini game collection might be a bit steep though. I'll have to see the full list of mini games before I decide.
 
Uh, am I missing something? Why would you buy this, on 3DS of all platforms? The full mario party games are on virtual console for a fraction of the price

Pour/para portable pushy penguins?

The game probably won't be great value for money but I've always really liked Mario Party mini games, they at least have my attention, price will be important.
 
Huh, from the website: "Speed things up with simple minigame instructions and a Favorites options for quick selection. You can even set the number of turns for board-game play!"

That last sentence is suspect. I can't imagine it means traditional game board play though or else I don't see why they wouldn't have revealed that now. Probably some neutered board game feature everyone will complain about like a take on the minigame stadium mode from MP1.

Didn't notice that, makes me think there is atleast something more here than what I expected.
 
With regards to this game being on the 3DS, my thought is that they can reuse models and assets from the past 3DS installments and make this one a quickie (as far as game production goes).

It's quite sensible, really.
 
Why devise new netcode for a late-gen 3DS release of a series that is historically dependent on not everyone having to own a copy of the game?

Download play over infrastructure is impossible.
Yeah, you're right, but damn this game would have been fire on the Switch with online.

Hopefully the next mainline game has it.
 
I absolutely adore Mario Party's minigames, so this has me super excited. I'm also one of the few that didn't get their 3DS magically destroyed once the Switch released, so I may be in the minority on this one.

Hopefully it's $30, but i'd suck it up and buy it at $40 if I had to.

I'd probably also buy at $40, although like you said $30 would be sweet.

I an genuinely surprised with the 3ds announcements today. Love my OG XL and my N3DS ( Even though I've played it maybe 10 times ugh ).
 
Came for Switch bitching.

Not disappointed, of course.

Maybe some of us don't want to spend over $300 on a new console? I have a ton of 3DS games. Not exactly in the mood to have a bigger backlog.
 
56 out of 100 confirmed:

Researched by PixlPlume and SlimKirby (known for Mario Party playthroughs on YouTube). They can pretty much recognize any minigame with almost only one pixel available, so yeah.
Ugh, Honeycomb Havoc!? That's the worst mini-game in 2! Why would they pick that? -_-

Hoping Hot Rope Jump still makes it. And Bowser's Big Blast (even though the cake one from... 4 or 5 is similar)
 
Nintendo, why the fuck aren't you rewarding people who jumped back in with the Switch? I haven't owned and enjoyed a Nintendo console since the GameCube, and I'm sure there are many others like me. I don't do handheld gaming... the opportunities to bring your audience of happy Switch owners some of the good stuff they missed are ripe for the picking.

Goddamnit.

Great idea, though.
Lol they are announcing so many more games for 3DS than Switch. It's absurd

The best minigames from the series yet stuff like honeycomb havoc and soar to score are on there. They're selling this based on a lie. I still have nightmares of the trouble HH caused me on MP2s minigame coaster.
