“The entire Mario gang is back for the seventh installment of the incredibly popular Mario Party? franchise. Players everywhere will set their controllers to fun as they run jump swim and fly through more than 80 new mini-games. But this partys about to get a lot bigger…because EIGHT people will now be able to battle each other at one time. The microphone peripheral from Mario Party? 6 also makes a grand return ? and with the new Mic Grand Prix mode there will be plenty of voice-over madness for everyone. The addition of two new playable characters Dry Bones and Birdo will ensure that even seasoned Mario Party vets can experience a new world of wackiness.
- Explore the world with six brand-new game boards. As Mario? and friends embark on an around-the-world cruise each board serves as an exotic port of call: Grand Canal Pagoda Peak Pyramid Park Neon Heights Windmillville and Bowsers Enchanted Inferno. Each one should be a lovely vacation spot…but Bowser has other plans.
- Up to eight players can participate in the action ? four more than the previous Mario Party titles. In a four-player game each participant will have his or her own controller. In an eight-player match participants will share a controller.
- Mario Party 7 will feature 86 new minigames 11 of which use the Nintendo GameCube Mic. From leaping over electrified hurdles to avoiding a mole with a giant hammer each game is a party in itself. The addition of two new playable characters Birdo and Dry Bones adds to the fun.
