Cool! Toad is still playable! But, don’t you think if Toad is there, Toadette should be too? I can’t recall the last time Toadette was playable, if ever.

I think the game have 10 characters, te 9 we know and:
Bowser Jr. (probably)
or
Toadette (she have a little chance)
or
Donkey Kong (is the first Mario Party he don’t make a appearence (to now), so I think he is a playabel character)

Well still no sign of Bowser Jr. in the lastest footage of Island Tour, but that makes me worry now. Boo is even on the title screen of Island Tour but BJunes isn’t, we know he’s in the game, but we don’t know what it is. If it was something like a Boss, he might be in Bowser Tower, but if it were something as simple as a space or a mini-game we should have seen it by now. Maybe Boo is the only extra character. If so that is extremely saddening. Come on Nintendo. You may not have made… Read more »

Reasons another character will be playable to support my reasoning (mainly Bowser Jr.)
1) They never announced anything about unlock able characters for 3D world and we all know what happened
2) Bowser Jr. has a shell in the box art
3) Bowser Jr. has his artwork with just the playable characters
4) Bowser Jr. is in the impersonate game with all the playable characters
5) There has never been an odd numbered Character roster in the Mario Party series
6) No footage yet of him

Thats the impression game that we saw from a month ago, thats was his first ingame appearance, but its only a photo, though Boo was in there and he wasn’t confirmed when we first go that footage. There is still no pyshical evidence that he is playable, we know that he is in the game, but we don’t know he is playable.

Please note that Bowser Jr.’s on the Boxart too. He could be playable.

I really hope he is, No Kamek was sad, but if Bowser Jr. isn’t playable, i’ll break down into tears.

I don’t know where everyone got this idea that bowser jr was going to be playable… If he is then he is probably a replacement for Koopa Kid.

It’s because he’s on the box art

Two reasons, First and the main reason is because he was on the boxart, we also assumed Shy Guy, Rosalina, Kamek, Boo would be playable as well, we mainly suspected Boo and Bowser Jr because they were closely to the board and holding items. Shy Guy, Rosalina and Kamek have their own boards so sadly their not playable. Now the other reason is before Boo was confirmed playable there was a minigame shown, it was Impression Confession or something? It was impression game where whoever appeared on the screen you had to mimic their voice. On that it showed Mario,… Read more »

I think Bowser Jr. is a playabel character since I saw the group artwork.

Now, that Mario Party is a REAL joke. In Mario Party Advance, all playable characters from Mario Party 1 & 2 are Playable except for Donkey Kong and Wario. In Mario Party DS, the roster should have been the same as Mario Party 3 & 4’s With Toadette screaming for help because Toad is the one who is being turned into a statue by Dry Bones instead of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong should have been in the instrumental board being surrounded by Hammer Bro. and the Boards should have been named “Diddy Kong’s Musical Room” and “Toad’s Stone Statue”.… Read more »

Donkey Kong will most likely be the 7th Board, or a Luigi themed board, but mostly Donkey Kong, there are no DK spaces and if he wasn’t in this game it would be the first real Mario Party he didn’t appear in, I SAY Real because I hated Mario Party Advanced and I refuse to say it’s Mario Party or that it exists.

I agree with everyone because Mario Party Advance and Mario Party DS are the ones which i hate them, i agree with most people on Mario Party Advance but i disagree with most people on Mario Party DS. I HATE Mario Party DS and, along with Mario Party Advance, are the worse Mario Party games ever. I don’t care if you like Mario Party 9 or not, MagiKooper.

It’s OK, we all have our own opinions. I though MPDS was OK, MPA was a joke, and MP9 was the perfect definition of mediocre.
