@toiletduck it’s a party game. It’s like saying 1-2 switch doesn’t support handheld mode

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

@1UP_MARIO @Therad I'm not saying I don't understand it So far it really seemed to me that Nintendo was willing to make every game suitable for all control schemes. Anyway, since games like 1-2 Switch and Snipperclips already did this, my comment doesn't make much sense...

People freaking out about this not being played in handheld are just looking for something to complain about. Like said above, it's a party game that's almost entirely built around joycon motion controls. What did you expect?

When I read comments about people complaining about this, I imagine them playing the tricycle game in handheld, rotating their entire Switch to pedal.

@toiletduck not necessarily people here. I mean all over, other sites, Reddit, etc.

Welp, 5 more days (including today) till the Party starts. Although I'll have to wait another 1-4 days for delivery. I'm kinda excited.

@Joeynator3000 I think the posted videos so far kinda speak for themselves right? It's 80 chaotic minigames, connected in one big game by a virtual board. Question is whether you're looking for a game like that or not. I preordered mine. I have two young cousins who'll probably love this; it's a good time waister for during the holidays.

I'm surprised this thread isn't more active. I'm SUPER hyped for Friday! Have the game prepurchased and ready to play! It seems a little light on content but if the actual game is fun, I can overlook it.

My preorder will apparently be shipping tomorrow. Or at least I get the tracking info tomorrow. But I can't play till the game actually arrives since I bought a physical copy.

I have this prepurchased and I can't wait to boot it up on launch day.

I do wish this game still allowed Portable Mode and had Boss Mini Games.

I'm actually thinking of holding off on this game for now, maybe I'll get it next month or something.

Well, we haven't actually seen all the mini-games I think. The videos tend to show the same ones repeatedly. So there might be boss mini-games. And considering motion controls appear to be a major part of the mini-games, portable mode could be too much of a pain. I mean, would you want to have to rotate the entire console in all directions and spin it around to play some of the mini-games? An action which, by the way, would prevent you from seeing what you're doing in-game.

I am hyped and waiting for this. I really want to play this with some friends Friday, but no-one seems available. I may have to bring the Switch and a few sixpacks to work for an after work session with some colleagues

The more I see, the more excited I get. In fact this game is seriously making me consider getting a second set of joy con. I may not have anyone locally to play 4 player games with, but when visiting my dad I may be able to get 2 more players. Maybe 3

Already pre-purchased, so the reviews won't sway me either way. But the reviews at the moment are really good for a Mario Party game. No Mario Party game has ever been a critical darling. They all tend to average around 7.0-7.5/10. And obviously something other games in the series average lower than that.

Before playing this one, I'm already hoping for a Super Mario Party 2. I want it to have Pro Controller Support, Handheld Mode Support, Online Play for Boards, more boards, up to 50 turns as an option, that's mostly it.

Game Informer gave this game a 7.25 out of 10, which basically means it's the best game ever. Game Informer wrote extremely negative reviews for every single previous Mario Party game, even the beloved N64 ones, so them giving it higher than a 5 is astonishing.

From the reviews, I get the understanding that it's a step in the right direction but is lacking in content (e.g. only 4 boards) so in a sense is pretty similar to Mario Tennis Aces.

Given ARMS, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Kirby Star Allies and Mario Tennis Aces went the free updates route to add extra content post-launch I have to wonder if Super Mario Party will join that list.
