This game might be using the same town from the first game as the main menu, it can be seen briefly in this overview trailer:

If that’s so, then I sure do hope the mini game island is back! This might just be the best game in the series.

I’m not sure if it’s more traps, but yes the boards have different icons all around.

I've been very weary about this thanks to NDCube's track record with the series but all of the information on the game is already out there thanks to the leaks and I'm convinced to give it a try. Just used my remaining NSO voucher that has been sitting in my account since I bought them for Famicom Detective Club months back so I'm committed now.

It could use some more boards and characters and the mechanics still aren't perfect but it seems like it should be a fun time with some actual degree of skill and strategy involved unlike the nonsense that was Super Mario Party.

Finally bit the bullet and offloaded SMP for this preorder. Waiting for reviews to start rolling in, but it’s got to be better than SMP, right?

Is this a good place to start in this franchise, if all I have access to is the Switch, or am I better to start with the other one on Switch?

They both have different mechanics, pick which one sounds better for you.

@Pizzamorg I would say Superstars is the better pick personally. I really didn't like Super due to the unbalanced economy, lacking boards, and strange mechanics. Superstars is going to be a complete return to the classic formula that so many people, myself included, love.

Currently playing:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mario Party Superstars
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Super Mario Galaxy 1 + 2 (Again)

@Pizzamorg I'd also definitely go for Superstars. I hated Super Mario Party.

I can't wait! My wife will be able to play with me, too.

Honestly I'm most excited about the internet connectivity, though. Parties on demand!

I would also like some opinions on which Mario Party to get as a newcomer that has never tried this series before, Super Mario Party or Mario Party Superstars? I would prefer the option that is more casual and easier for non-gamers to grasp, as I plan to buy this mainly to play with my wife and some friendly couples.

I have been trying non-stop to get my wife into gaming with games such as Overcooked, Dead Squared, and Mario Kart, without much success, and I want to make one last attempt with one of the most hyped party games of all time.

Looks like I am going to pick up Superstars, if nothing else but because it allows you to use the pro controller and the Joy cons.

@Pizzamorg

Wait a minute, Super Mario Party doesn't allow you to use the pro controller or third party controllers such as Binbok? How is this even possible?

Eel

@alexwolf Super Mario Party is designed around the special properties of the Joycon. So it can only be played using those.

Dunno about third party controllers, but yah, apparently it can only be played with the Joycon which kinda buggers you, as Joycon are expensive and you're likely going to need more than one. With Superstars, I can use the pro control and then give the two halves to my folks or whatever way round we want to do it.

I managed to play a bit online and it worked really well. It’s certainly more fun than playing with computer players.

Just bought the game today! I was gonna wait until Christmas (would've been quite the exciting present for me, lol) but I decided to play it sooner than that. Should get to my place on Tuesday.

@thiz I agree. I think Superstars is the obvious choice here. It's more accessible, has more maps, more minigames, more features, PLUS, all of it is better than Super.

Currently playing:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mario Party Superstars
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Super Mario Galaxy 1 + 2 (Again)

I dont really understand this "which one should I get" conflict. I mean there is a game that was rated badly and a game that people seem to love. Either you chose awful motion controls and only 4 boards to play, which I dont know if it has online, but is probably dead now since since everyones playing the new game, or you get the great one everyone seems to like with all the classic mini games people learned to love the series for.

Not a hard decision to make in my book.

I mean you say that but there are three points difference between the two metacritic scores. It isn't like one is tracking a 20 and the other a 100. It is 76 to 79. The last party game on Switch seemed to review well overall, so I would have had no idea that there is such a dislike for that previous title, if not for places like this.

Even here it got an 8 out of 10: https://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/nintendo-switch/super_ma...

I had to leave a game earlier to go eat dinner. Not all quits are rage quits.

Thankfully this game handles connection losses and quits extremely well.
