Mario Party 9 is Coming Up the UK Charts

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

So you better get it started

Mario Party 9 may be trying a few new things, but it still knows how to keep a crowd happy. In this week's UK software charts the latest entry in the series has secured a very respectable third place, grabbing it a useful stash of mini-stars in the process.

This is apparently the highest debut UK chart position for the series, with Mario Party 8 previously coming in at number five way back in 2007. When you also consider that major retailers GAME and Gamestation didn't stock Mario Party 9, it's a thoroughly impressive performance.

If you're still not sure whether to accept the invitation to Mario's latest bash, check out our Mario Party 9 review to help you decide.

A great game but I still prefer the old formula. It's a shame that in trying something different they had to get rid of the old mode. Maybe it should be like Mario Kart where you get a selection of old boards to play as well as new ones?

Wow. Even without Game and Gamestation, it made number 3.

Makes you wonder if it could have got the top spot if they had sold it as well.
