Author's Note: Wow. I did not expect this. I may just bust out Super Mario Party. I don't even know if I brought it with you. How about you? Let us know in the comments below!

I think it's pretty cool that Nintendo is giving us another option for Mario Party during the pandemic. Could be a combination of that and something to hold us over until Mario Party 12/Super Mario Party 2.
I really hope that this is some sign that DLC is coming,

I like Super Mario Party, But I would love it even more if they would just give us the option to buy more boards and maybe even mini games too, Really surprising that a game this successful (Well over 10 million units) has yet to get any support. Good game, But lacks content.

While Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros are great, Mario Party is great to whip out with family and friends who don't game too often and just wanna sit back, Have a few snacks and drinks and just play casually.
On one hand this is good, on the other...way to damn late.

I kinda want to try and get back into mario party since I stopped iwth the series after 4 on the gcn (i found it so awful that It turned me away from the series), and online functionality would certainly be a way to get me to try. But at the same time, I just don't think I'd enjoy any MP game again. Much like Mario kart, it just feels like the magic is gone in the series for me.
