Mario Party Legacy

Mario Party 9

Mario Party 9 is the ninth installment in the Mario Party series. After a five year hiatus, Mario Party is back, and this time with an all new twist! Instead of the usual board play seen in past Mario Party titles, players now ride together in a single vehicle, collecting as many Mini-Stars as they can to win the game. Mario Party 9 included a Story Mode, as well as Koopa, Shy Guy, and Magikoopa/Kamek as new playable characters.




It’s a typical evening in the Mushroom Kingdom and Mario and the gang are out enjoying the beautiful view of the Mini-Stars through a telescope. Just when everything seems at peace, the Mini-Stars begin to disappear into a spiraling vortex. None other than Bowser is at the other end, this time plotting, and succeeding, at taking all the Mini-Stars for himself. Now it’s up to Mario and the gang to reach and defeat Bowser by playing through various board maps and mini-games!
