Nintendo Celebrates Family Fun by Hosting the Ultimate Late-Night Party for Mario Party 9

Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City and Lucky Radio Disney Listeners to Experience New Wii Game and Prize Giveaways on March 9

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo:

To celebrate the launch of Mario Party 9, a new game launching exclusively for the Wii console, Nintendo is teaming up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City and Radio Disney to host a fun launch party. Invited guests will be among the first to try out the 80 new minigames, adventurous new stages and exciting boss battles in Mario Party 9 before the game launches on March 11. Throughout the evening, attendees will enjoy food, beverages, live entertainment from Radio Disney and a chance to win cool prizes (while supplies last).

The party is back and bigger than ever with Mario Party 9, as boss battles crash the party and challenge players to compete and defeat a common enemy. In a series first, players now travel across stages together in a vehicle towards a common goal, overcoming obstacles, battling bosses and collecting Mini Stars stolen by Bowser and his minions. But don’t get too friendly – only one player can become the Superstar.

Tune in to Radio Disney AM 1560 in the weeks leading up to the event. Four lucky listeners will win tickets to attend and party with Mario and Luigi. More information about Mario Party 9 is available at

It's missing two very important things:
+Individual Character Movement
Man, even if it isn't Hudson developing Mario Party, they'll still forget about online.


Also, bringing previous party boards or mini-games would have made this better.
MP3 - Toadstool Titan FTW!
Making a mini-game that is completely luck based is hogwash.
The mini-games that combined luck with skill made things interesting.

@Ulala Man, I remember that well enough. I wonder if I should get it off eBay? Maybe it'll eventually show on a VC of sorts?
