Streetpass in Mario Party: Island Tour Detailed
http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/35722

  • Mario Party: Island Tour, developed by Nd Cube, will feature StreetPass mini-games where players can compete against the ghost data of people they pass by.
  • The StreetPass mode is a part of the "deep and exciting" solo experience in the forthcoming 3DS game, due out on November 22.
  • In addition, players can choose from different difficulties and compete in a mini-game tower, the latter of which wasn't explained further.
  • Players can also unlock a variety of collectables, including voices, music, and character illustrations, using Mario Party Points earned throughout the game.
  • Shy Guy's Shuffle City involves players using playing cards to try to strategically make their way to the goal.

  • Banzai Bill's Mad Mountain has players climbing a mountain installed with Banzai Bill Blasters. After rolling the die, you can risk making progress on the board or hide out in cave.
  • After rolling the die, you can risk making progress on the board or hide out in cave. Whenever somebody rolls a Banzai Bill, it fires across one of the board's horizontal ledges, knocking back everybody in its path. So the board revolves around risk-taking and luck.
  • Die rolling is fairly realistic — you jiggle it around on the touch screen and fling it onto the top screen, which means you can kind of control how it lands.

Whoops; the Nintendo eShop incorrectly stated that Mario Party: Island Tour is an NES game.

If you have absolutely no one else with an extra 3DS near you, then it will be like that. It's still pretty fun, but the appeal gets limited by the fact that you're playing alone.

If you have 3DS owners near you or extra 3DSs yourself and some friends willing to play with you every now and then, then it will be amazing because the game supports download play (which means you only need to buy the game once and still play it with up to three other people).

I saw an Island Tour commercial on Cartoon Network, but I wasn't paying attention. So, there's proof that they are adverting IT.

Well damn, this game is starting to sound pretty good! Sounds way better than Mario Party DS, and I enjoyed that one quite a bit back in the day. I've owned the other two handheld Mario Party games (Mario Party Advance being the other one) and greatly enjoyed both; I see no reason to not continue my collection!

...and, consequently, it seems this is the first handheld Mario Party game to not be named after its system...

I hope that at least one of the boards is a classic "looping" board.

Giving us fast point a to point b boards is a good idea for the console, but let's not neglect the classics!

Another crappy Nintendo ad.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

It's nice to see the party points and unlockables are back! They really add some more life to the game.

Just hope the multiplayer modes give party points this time around.

Does this support single player story vs CPU? I probably won't play with anyone else! just by myself.

The commercial was funny because of the way the mustaches just snapped onto their faces.
