Mario Party Will Party Once Again

Our long Mario Party drought is over! The last game in Nintendo's Mario Party series, Mario Party 8, was released in 2007. And the latest entry, Mario Party 9 was revealed today at the E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles.

The Wii game currently doesn't have a release date, and it's unclear whether Nintendo's Nd Cube, which developed Wii Party, will be crafting the game or not.


    This isn't the kind of party I signed up for.

    Yay a remake of a remake of a remake of a remake starring the most useless icon in gaming. Does Mario have a "story" or personality apart from collecting coins and tripping on acid?

      do Chess or Go have a story. Story is for narrative-driven media. Games are not innately narrative-driven. Mario's an icon because Mario games are fun and approachable.

      I owned and enjoyed Mario Party 1, it got nearly as much play time as Smash Bros.

      That being said, I doubt that after 9 iterations of anything that there'd be fresh ideas left.

    Mario Party 9.
    Anyone else think that's a little disturbing?

    The guy knows how to throw a party.
