Boo Confirmed to be Playable in Mario Party: Island Tour

We speculated back in August that both Boo and Bowser Jr. would become playable in Mario Party: Island Tour, and it looks like that is the case for at least one of the two characters. In the most recent batch of screenshots, Boo can be spotted in the image of the Bullet Bill map. Make no mistake, Boo is seen to function just like the other eight playable characters.

Are you surprised? Would you rather have a different character? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Rejoice! I always knew he’d be playable since the first screens.

It looks Boo might be a starter since they showed him before Bowser Jr so maybe Kamek is also back as a starter. Bowser Jr might be unlocked after beating story mode.

I knew Boo would end up playable. Assuming he’s available from the start, I’m going to use him as much as I can!

I like Dreambert, but I think they don’t put characters from Mario RPG series.

Lol yeah I was about to comment on that. Though Nabbit would be cool, i don’t think they will put him sadly.

Wooo BOO. Now thats Boo is playable, Bowser Jr has to be in it to as a unlockable. So thats 10 charcters, which means they are bound to add 2 more. ADD KAMEK AND ROSALINA!! COME ON THEIR ON THE BOX! and Kamek is my favorite character besides Fawful. Also does anyone notice that their all panicking over the bullet bill, Someone must have messed up, i wonder who could have done that LUIGI?!

If you look in the group artwork, you can see 2 shy guys in the background, so unfortunately its unlikely

Charachters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Toad, Toadette, Yoshi, Birdo, Dry Bones, Koopa Troopa, Boo, Rosalina, Kamek, Kammy Koopa, Shy Guy, and Fly Guy
That should be the complete charachter list I would love that

I agree with all of those characters except Fly Guy and Kammy Koopa, Fly Guy is just a Shy Guy with a porpellir(don’t how to spell this world XD) on his head, so it would be kinda pointless, as for Kammy Koopa, Nintendo doesn’t really take characters out of the RPG series, But I would love to see Kamek.

That is the perfect list

Donkey Kong yes, Funky Kong, no would feel like a clone, and Funky hasn’t been seen in like 10 years.

Mario Super Sluggers was only 5 years ago.

But yeah, Funky seems pretty forgotten right now, just like Tiny Kong, King K. Rool, the Kritters, and Baby Luigi/Peach/Daisy/DK. Hopefully they all make a comeback, like Toadette.

All of those are forgotten accept Baby Luigi, he’s always kidnapped in Yoshi Island series, and he had a good role in Partners in Time, Baby and Grown Up Luigi, a pair made for each other.

NO! NO BLOOPERS! Their boring, i hated when they put them in Mario Party 7, i think they were in that game. it felt it felt boring, and it would be a complete waste to put them in IT, Bowser Jr. and Koopa Kid in the same game? Not a chance. It would just feel like a clone of Bowser Jr. As for the BoomFireIceHammer Bros. characters it be ok if they were playable.

Rosalina and Bowser Jr. could be the final playable characters if there are 11 characters, but it is unlikely that Kamek will be a participant unless that the number of playable characters is 10, then with that number, Rosalina. might be the host and Bowser Jr might the final mini-boss, respectivley
