Nd Cube is Not Developing Mario Party: Star Rush

Nd Cube will not be developing Mario Party: Star Rush, at least according to the E3 2016 fact sheet for the game. Instead, the game will be developed internally by Nintendo themselves. This is the first Mario Party to not be developed by Nd Cube since the company took the reigns from Hudson Soft with Mario Party 9 in 2012.

No other information has been released on the sudden change, but expect to hear more as we head towards the game’s November 4 release!

Wow…. might explain why this one looks significantly better than the last three! (in my opinion)

Maybe the sales of recent Mario Party: Island Tour/Mario Party 10/Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival were not up to Nintendo’s expectations, so they gave ND Cube the boot and decided to make the next one themselves?

As odd as that sounds, I can’t imagine why else Nintendo would replace ND Cube.

I doubt it. Mario Party Island Tour and MP10 actually sold rather well which god knows why and it was a while back that they 100% bought them out so yeah it’s rather odd, but it just makes the new Mario Party game much more interesting.

Think Nintendo should do “Mario Party 11” themselves?

To be honest, this is something made me excited for this Mario Party more than Nd Cude’s 9, IT, and 10!

The game was already in a pretty “solid” state when it was shown at E3, they just didnt show that much

I’m actually not surprised with the release date in Europe

Guys, Nd Cube might not be developing Star Rush, but how do we know if Nintendo can make a Mario Party on their own, while making it more like what they did with Hudson Soft?

Someone help me clarify this just in case i am mis-remembering history. When Konami bought out Hudsonsoft for it’s IPs and disbanded the company, most of the members of Hudson Soft’s Mario Party team moved over to Nintendo and were given the no-longer-in-use developer title of Nd Cube. The thinking being that this group would continue making Mario Party games in addition to other non-Mario themed party games for Nintendo.(This was the Wii generation, so this kinda of plan made sense back then) Now this wasn’t exactly the same group as before, but it was predominantly the same group that… Read more »
