Almost certainly the last Mario game to be released for Nintendo’s Wii console (and certainly the last Mario Party title) before the much anticipated Wii U makes its debut later this year, Mario Party 9 is due for release in just over one month’s time. The latest batch of official gameplay footage was unveiled by Nintendo yesterday, and is embedded at the bottom of this page.
The party is back and bigger than ever in the Mario Party 9 game for Wii, featuring all-new ways to play! For the first time in the franchise, boss battles crash the party and challenge players to compete to defeat a common enemy. In addition, 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. Featuring 80 new minigames, adventurous new stages, and all-new ways to play that blend cooperative and competitive action for up to four players, Mario Party 9 is the perfect way to get the party started.
Mario Party 9 is currently due for release on the Nintendo Wii on Friday, March 2nd 2012.
