As is often the case, Nintendo’s currently working on a new Mario Party, and this one doesn’t even have a number or platform name in its title: Mario Party: Island Tour for the 3DS. In North America it’s coming out in about three weeks, so they’ve released a new trailer to advertise the game’s various features. “Party across 7 new game boards,” “compete in 80 new minigames,” and “tilt and turn with motion controls and AR card play” are among the imperative orders handed down from on-high in Mario Party: Island Tour.

I’ll to be honest with you, I actually forgot this game was even a thing that existed. Are you looking forward to it?

Our Verdict


Barry Herbers
I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
