Mario Party 4 made the jump to the GameCube and got a visual update with new boards, lots of minigames, and the new mega and mini item mechanic.
The boards in Mario Party 4 were modeled in full 3D for the first time and characters and minigames looked better than ever. The new mega and mini item mechanic led the biggest change in board gameplay but Mario Party 4 didn’t stray too far from the formula that worked so well in its predecessor.
