12 Characters Total, Story Mode, and More for Mario Party 9

The latest preview for Mario Party 9 has hit the web, this time bringing in a ton of previously unheard of information. While the text is in another language (Spanish to be exact), our good friend Shaby has been able to pick out the most important pieces of information.

  • No Classic Mode
  • Wiggler is a boss
  • 2 vs 2 minigames
  • Toad Houses on boards
  • 12 characters!
  • Story Mode
  • Minigame Mode
  • Extras Mode
  • Mario Party Points will unlock more modes, characters and boards.
  • We will mainly use the Wiimote in the horizontal position.
  • No WiFi

Very interesting news, and some upsetting news as well. While Classic Mode is said not to return, there might have been an error in translation, or a contradiction in the article. There is a total of 12 characters (Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Wario, Waluigi, Daisy, Toad, Birdo, Koopa, and Shy Guy), with one character that has not been revealed. Mario Party Points are to be used to buy more characters, but does this mean we will get more than the confirmed 12? Are the 12 just the starter roster?

So many questions and so little time. Be sure to stick with Mario Party Legacy for latest on Mario Party 9!
