Mario Party: Star Rush, a new Mario Party game for the Nintendo 3DS, has just been announced at Nintendo’s Live Treehouse at E3 2016!

Star Rush features new gameplay changes to make it more portable-friendly, including all players moving at once rather than having to wait for their turn.

Stay tuned for more information to be revealed tomorrow!

    Definitely getting this. Hopefully Rosalina is playable in this one.

    • Yoshiman222

      I would assume based on the amiibo alone…

    • I assume Rosalina’s going to be playable in this game (along with Boo, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong). The amiibos have to mean something. For example, it’s not like they will make Dry Bones playable without an amiibo.

  • XT

    I just hope the roster of characters for this one is big and not small, but something tells me it’s not considering it’s gonna be handheld. Honestly would’ve never expected another Mario Party to be on the 3ds since they only had one Mario Party on the DS. Well one things for sure is that the car seems to be nowhere in sight meaning people can be happy again…… Unless it goes straight to the goal again.

    • The roster kinda have bigger than IT, but i assume that would be 12 or 14 roster.

      Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Toad, Wario, Waluigi, Rosalina, Boo, DK, and Diddy. = 12. 😛

      • E.Gadd

        Yeah, this is most likely the roster. I can dig it.

      • Mr. Luiginary

        I completely agree with your roster predictions. Mainly because of the Amiibos.

    • Mr. Luiginary

      Around 12. I predict: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, Toad, Boo, Dry Bones, Rosalina, and Nabbit.

      • XT

        Yeah obviously all of the characters in the Mario series wave of amiibo will most likely be playable, Diddy Kong has an amiibo in this line meaning this might actually be his first playable appearance in a Mario Party game, just like Bowser Jr in Island Tour. Nabbit would be kind of a stretch but I can see it happening. I wonder what other new mechanics will be in this one other than everyone moving at once?

  • E.Gadd

    I’m fine with simultaneous movement, just let me do that separately from the other players and we’re golden Nintendo.

  • Ateles Arma (KINGZ)

    I know this is a bit of a stretch but o really hope this addition of Mario Party has online play.

  • MagiKooper

    Have better boards, a faster pace, online play, mini-games on EVERY board/turn, and no multiplayer exclusive boards – (Seriously why???? It ruins the experience especially if its on a handheld.)

    Do all of that, and we got a decent Mario Party.

    • Toblet

      Unfortunately ‘Star Rush’ sounds very linear (singular path) to me. Don’t have high hopes.

      • MagiKooper

        My high hopes for Mario Party stopped with Mario Party 10, similar to what Color Splash did to my hopes of Paper Mario, hopefully tomorrow willl change that.

  • Rosie

    l’m kinda suprised. I mean, if they ever made another Mario Party for the current consoles, l thought it would be the Wii U.

    • CorrinFTW

      Yeah I thought that too. Also, the other side game (by side game I mean DS and IT, because they don’t have a number) was released not so long ago, just before MP10, and there’s a new one already.
      I guess it’s because they had a good idea and it wouldn’t fit with a console version, or because they want to keep the car mechanic and didn’t want to add a random installment in the middle of the main series.

  • CorrinFTW

    That new gameplay intrigues me. I’m looking forward the gameplay demo tomorrow. I hope Nintendo chooses the right path and straightens the MP series’ reputation.

    • Mr. Luiginary

      We all hope that.

  • Which characters you think that are going to be playable (I know, I have to add Diddy Kong).

    • Geo Stelar

      I like this roster it has every Mario party character

    • CorrinFTW

      Now, THIS is a good roster!

    • MagiKooper

      Pretty good roster, though i’d remove Blooper and replace him with Nabbit.

  • 8B1T

    Treehouse today (Wednesday) should provide more info into MP:SR for those of you who were wondering.

  • Author’s Ness-Greninja

    We already know these characters
    Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Toad, Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Boo, and Rosalina will be in but im curious how much effort theyll actually put in this game for once

  • Lakilester

    I want Bowser Jr. Or Hammer Bro. In this game

  • Geo Stelar

    I hope all the character from 8 are in
    plus Magikoopa, Rosalina and Spike

    • RafalRib

      The mario amiibo are confirmed, we can now hope for more characters

    • Waluigifan32

      I just hope all the characters that were playable in Mario Party 5 up to 10 are playable. XD

  • CorrinFTW

    There’s some new info about Mario Party Star Rush for the impatients like me 😛 (It’s not a lot, don’t get your hopes too high lol)
