The game will run you $49.99 for the standalone game, or $59.99 for the bundle, which includes the game and the Mario amiibo figure from the Super Mario amiibo line. If you pre-loaded the game, then you can start playing after minutes of the last bit of download! Play your traditional Mario Party by collecting the most Mini-Stars, or Bowser Party if you want to terrorize Mario and his friends (or Mario and his friends to escape Bowser), or amiibo Party if you want the old classic way of playing Mario Party from the games prior to Mario Party 9! We also have pages dedicated to Mario Party 10, however, most are still in work progress. Check back as we continue to update the pages with accurate information and how to play and win!
The Super Mario amiibo Wave 1 is also now available to purchase from your local retailers! The first wave consists of Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, and Toad! Each will run you $12.99, and they can unlock you more boards in amiibo Party! All other amiibo figures are compatible with Mario Party 10, however, they will give you extra Mario Party Points for use to unlock even more content. Rosalina & Luma and Donkey Kong are also compatible with Mario Party 10, and will also give you extra boards. Wario is another one of the compatible figures, however, Wario is currently impossible as he is not yet released. There is also the Gold Mario edition, which works exactly the same way as Mario does, the only difference is that he is coated in gold. Those of you in United States, he is exclusive to Walmart retailers.
All that aside, should you get your hands on the Toad amiibo figure, you can now use him in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker to try to search for his 8-bit icons hidden somewhere in each stage. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker has received an update to support the amiibo feature. All other amiibo figures will just grant you extra lives.
