What Will Mario Party 3DS’s Final Name Be?

Nintendo is set to highlight all its upcoming titles for the rest of 2013 in tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct, and Mario Party 3DS will no doubt make a showing. Since its announcement, the game has been refereed to as “Mario Party for Nintendo 3DS,” lacking an official title. Looking back at the past fourteen years, each Mario Party game has been tagged as a numbered entry, or in the case of the handhelds, the name of the system. You would think the same would go for Mario Party 3DS, yet Nintendo insists the game does not have a final title yet.

We are mere hours away from getting new information, new media, most likely a release date, and finally an official title. Do you think Nintendo and Nd Cube, the developers behind the series, are moving away from numbered entries and the like? Do you think they will finally go with a subtitle? Do you want them to change the style they have been using since the original Mario Party in 1999? Let us know what you think, as well as your guesses at a name, in the comments below!

I think the final name should just be Mario Party 3D.

Agreed. I think that sounds more fitting.

Nah, save that name for Wii U’s Mario Party.

The Wii U is a home console, so it would probably be called Mario Party 10

Well none of the handheld Mario Parties had numbers, so I don’t think this one would be different.

I want the formula used in 1 – 8. It’s true Mario party that way. I feel like by changing it, they’re making almost a different game series. It just doesn’t feel right.

I agree. While Mario Party 9 was fun and had probably the greatest batch of minigames in the series the party mode was just not as good. I really like the boss battles though and I hope they keep those in the series. Like maybe when half of the game is over you fight the miniboss and once the game is over you fight the boss.

Can’t have 2 games with the same name, and 3DS doesn’t go into titles. A New Nintendo Direct tomorrow you say? May have something to do with stuff that’s in the game itself.

Most likely the game will simply be called Mario Party 3DS or just Mario Party 3D. All games on a console have been in the main series by numbers, all the way up to nine on the Wii. All portable ones, like Advance, have been named after their system in some way.

Games don’t just say 3DS in them. And this is no remake.

Never said it was a remake. Look at all the portable Mario Party’s… they all are named after their system.

Games that say 3D are usually 3DS Remakes/Ports of other games. And no 3DS game would have 3DS in the title.

I don’t think that It will be called anything new, but probably a number, or just Mario Party 3DS.

They likely wanted to save it for a different Nintendo Direct.
