Hopes and Predictions for Mario Party 10 DLC

Did you ever think a Mario Party game would get DLC? While nothing has been said about Mario Party 10 and the possibility of downloadable content, the precedent for Nintendo games on the Wii U to feature DLC has never been higher. While we wait for any sort of word on DLC for Mario Party 10, let’s look at some of the possible additions we could get!


Character Pack

Who doesn’t love new characters? DLC could throw in a new character or two, especially considering the character select screen for Mario Party 10 features a large button for random selection. This could easily be moved to leave room for two more character slots. Obviously, slots on a character select screen are not the final reason as to why more characters weren’t included, but it could indicate that the developers wanted to leave room for future characters. If anything, we can get some characters from Mario Party 9 or Island Tour, assuming they are easy to port over.


Board Pack

How about some retro boards? Obviously, the new playstyle in the recent entries in the series doesn’t really work with the boards of the older games, but there are a few that would make the cut. Boards like Pagoda Peak can be easily integrated with the car gameplay, and you could even change some boards to feature a linear path. Maybe some boards can be pulled straight from Mario Party 9 and Mario Party: Island Tour. Doubtful that any brand new boards would be created, but you never know!


Minigame Pack

A minigame pack is one of the more probable kinds of DLC we could get. You could easily pull from any of the past Mario Party games to find a perfect collection of retro minigames. Getting brand new minigames isn’t a crazy idea either. A pack of 10 or 15 new minigames could be what helps keep Mario Party 10 new and interesting a few months down the line.


DLC through Amiibo

Amiibos give the greatest hope of any kind of DLC for Mario Party 10. There are currently six Amiibos announced for the Super Mario line, but there are actually nine different Amiibos you can use in the game. Will Donkey Kong, Wario, and Rosalina get their own Amiibo as well? If this second wave comes, will it also include the remaining characters like Daisy, Waluigi, Toadette, and Spike? If they do, there’s your DLC!


Combo Pack

If we do get some sort of DLC for Mario Party 10, it’ll most likely be some kind of combo pack like we’ve seen with Mario Kart 8. A combo pack could include a new character, two boards, ten minigames, and a couple of unlockable vehicles. It’s the best way to get a little bit of everything!

hey! i want NEW boards! 🙁
i want a snow board and a desert board.
i hope we get some new boards and characters.

The paragraph about amiibo is exactly what I expect to happen. Other than that I guess I could see a handful of DLC characters and maybe an extra board getting added, but if this is like the DLC for other Nintendo games this stuff would still be quite a ways off.

March 11, 2015 9:59 PM

These are just characters i wouldn’t mind seeing as DLC. i obviously don’t expect a lot of these characters to make it as DLC

Mario DLC characters(a lot of characters were used as UNECESSARY NPCs so i won’t list anyone that’s already a NPC)

Luma(in the Rosalina board, but i’m not counting it)
Diddy Kong
Boom Boom
Koopa Kid(needs to make a return.probably won’t happen unfortunately)
Honey Bee
E gadd.
Mummy Toad(from captain toad treasure tracker)

Non Mario Characters

Pac Man

I like the characters you’ve chosen that could possibly be dlc for the game but should I spoil this game for you or would you like to see for yourself? Because I already seen a lot of game play of Mario party 10

Penguin is life…

March 12, 2015 4:43 AM

My predictions are
Characters: Birdo, Dry Bones, boo or Lakitu

Boards: Frozen-drop Tundra and Pyramid path

Minigames: battle minigames get added along with a few new ones for each style

Amiibo: maybe the amiibo’s could give characters special costumes or items or 5 mini stars

March 12, 2015 7:32 AM

My Hopes:
Character Pack: Boo & Birdo.
Board Pack: Pagoda Peak & Frozen Forest
Combo Pack Bonus: Whittle & Lakitu as Characters & Magma Mine & Cave City

March 12, 2015 11:00 AM

And to finish my hopes here are the best smash characters (non mario) that i wouldnt mind as DLC!

-Toon Link
-Kirby, Dedede or Meta Knight
-Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, Pichu, Charizard, Ivysaur, Squirtle, Pokémon Trainer, Lucario or Greninja
-Duck Hunt Dog
-Ness or Lucas

-Mega Man

Any others arent too much “kid friendly” to get in cuz this isnt Mario Kart XD

Toon Link: Yup.
Samus: Eh…
Pit: Meh.
Marth: no comment
Kirby, DDD, or Metaknight: Kirby for sure, dunno about other two
Fox: Cool.
Pokemons: Pokemon Trainer and the bipedal pokemons would be good.
DHD: Nah. I like him, but nah.
ROB-Sure, why not?
Ness/Lucas: Maybe.
Villager- He should be a DLC boss who tries to chop your head off.
Olimar- What about his pikmin?
Pac Man: OKAY! 😀
Sonic: See DHD
Mega Man: if the year was 1990, OKAY If the year was 2015, Nope.

PIKMIN IN MP10!!!! 😛

I think it is obvious that team pagoda peak wants a pagoda peak package.

DLC Pack 1 includes:
New Characters: Birdo and Koopa Troopa
New Boards: Pokey Valley (like pagoda peak met western land) and Snowman’s Palace (like frosted glacier from nsmbu met boos horror castle but luckily no boos)
20 new minigames (6 free-for-all, 3 2-vs-2, 3 1-vs-3, 4 boss battle, 4 bowser vs. all)
Online Mode: Lets you play minigames with people worldwide or with friends

Let’s face it, making an online mode that includes the Mario or Bowser Party mode is pretty unlikely.

March 13, 2015 1:13 PM

A few more DLC Ideas… What about a DLC mode that unlocks CLASSIC MODE… pretty self explanatory I think… xDDDD It could utilize all the boards from MP10 with slight modifications to make it possible to use in a classic style. Similar to MP6 – 8, each board would have a unique playing style. ALSO, due to the lackluster of classic modes in MP9 and IT, I feel like there could be two ADDITIONAL DLC Packages which will be similar. Each could come with three characters and classic style boards, and some new minigames. Pack #1: -Mushroom Park: Classic Mario… Read more »

I hope the dlc for Mario party 10 will be more decent than Mario kart 8’s dlc it’ll be a 2 pack dlc with 2 new boards and a new character although I am a bit disturbed by the fact that there’s no online once again and what surprises me the most is that there’s no story mode heck there wasn’t even an intro in the game which is an odd thing to leave out

Sometimes the best DLC is to have no DLC at all

Shut up.

I want Pauline

What would you guys say about this idea: a desert board called “Sunbaked Sands”. Vehicle: Flying Carpet Mid-boss Minigame: “Flame Chomp’s Sandy Skirmish”, where you’re on moving sand trying to collect crystals to fire at Flame Chomp while you avoid its fireballs which make you lose 1 point. The fireballs can also knock you back toward a pit which costs you 1 point if you fall in. When Flame Chomp is at half-damage, it’ll shoot bigger fireballs which cost you 2 points. Stage Boss Minigame: “Pokey’s Carpet Cannonade” where you’re on flying carpets firing cannonballs at Pokey. Pokey can fling… Read more »

This isn’t really DLC, but I’d love a Nintendo Party game, with Mario, Toon Link, Kirby, Pikachu etc

March 18, 2015 11:49 AM

they need dlc more games and more boards and maybe a new character or to

March 18, 2015 11:53 AM

they need to bring back these old comers because bowser jr,blooper and kamek appear as bosses the oldcomes they should bring back are dry bones,birdo,koopa troopa,Boo, hammer bro, shy guy, koopa kid,

March 21, 2015 9:41 AM

I need someone to throw a Koopa, or a Hammer Bro in MP10

March 30, 2015 11:13 AM

With only 5 boards, the fewest in MP history… this begs for the permission of more boards in DLC. Retro remakes are fine just give me more to play 🙂

April 3, 2015 5:33 PM

Shy Guy would make great DLC.

April 3, 2015 5:34 PM

Does this go to Nintendo?

Also, a mode playing classic style without the car would be fantastic. I’d hate to make this a habit but I would buy that dlc for sure. It sounds like its what most of the long running fans are wanting
