Some people may have been worried at first, but it looks like Mario Party: The Top 100 is going to be more fleshed out than they originally thought. We know more of what to expect thanks to a new trailer detailing some of the game modes and Amiibo functionality. The game has more than just minigames, but the pack of 100 certainly seems to be the highlight: the glue that will likely hold this package together for some Nintendo 3DS gamers.

Small boards will be playable among the various minigames from throughout the series’ home console history. A minigame decathlon and other game modes are playable via download play with friends.

Amiibo functionality comes into play too with the Super Mario series of NFC figures. They can earn the player extra coins, lives, or special minigame packs. It looks like the Goomba and Koopa Troopa Amiibo will be especially good figures to have around when playing this portable Mario Party, as they can provide you with extra large bonuses in certain situations.

What do you think about this game now? Do you still wish it was coming to the Nintendo Switch instead? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Our Verdict

Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
