Mario Party: Island Tour Gets The Dice Rolling On 17th January In Europe

Posted by Orla Madden

Get the party started

Not too long ago we reported that Mario Party: Island Tour had suffered a delay into early 2014 — it was previously scheduled to arrive this month in Europe.

Today's Nintendo Direct confirmed that the title will launch in the region on 17th January 2014, bringing with it a variety of wacky mini-games and seven new boards to play on. Aside from the multiplayer madness that's expected in such a title, users can test their skills in single player mode by tackling ten mini-games in a row in as fast a time as possible, as well as entering Bowser's Tower where you defeat enemies spread out across different levels of the tower. A boss battle appears every five floors.

Mario Party: Island Tour also makes use of the 3DS' StreetPass feature, giving gamers the chance to compete against other player's data in mini-game competitions.

The game arrives this month in North America, so we really don't have too long to wait in Europe.

Seven boards is quite generous for a Mario Party title. Most other games in the series have less than that. The only one to have more than seven playable boards (a whopping eight) was the original Mario Party as far as I remember. Boy, do I miss playing it...
