Do you think there will be a Mario Party for the 3DS & Wii U?
« on: January 31, 2012, 06:08:20 PM »
Considering how there isn't a section for speculation on the future of Mario Party, I guess this is a good spot for this thread.

Anyways, what do you guys think about Nintendo making Mario Party for the 3DS & Wii U? Not saying we should expect more than MP9 this year. Mario Party in 3D would be an interesting idea and there are a lot of possibilities for Mario Party on the Wii U (like how the Wii U controller uses Near-Field Connection).

We've seen Mario Party 9 introduce the car mode, so what innovations do you think Nintendo can bring to the Mario Party franchise with 3DS & Wii U iterations?

There is actually a board for future Mario Party Discussion. However, that board is in the archives.

And I think it's very likely that it would happen for both platforms. A Mario Party for the 3DS would make sense in a way, in which it would be the third Mario Party for the handhelds. And Mario Party 10 will likely be on Wii U, since Mario Party 9 is coming soon and we have the Wii U launch in Holiday 2012. But there might only be one of each, though. It may seem that they are taking the path of one Mario Party game per console/handheld direction now, like Mario Kart is.

And I'm not sure what other innovations there might be. They're trying to find ways to speed up game play, so the car mode is one of them.

I think because Nintendo resurrected the Mario Party series with Mario Party 9 that they will defiantly make Mario Party 10 for the Wii U. A Mario Party on the Wii U will be amazing. The minigames could be so creative. O0

They could even add new things as DLC for the 3DS & Wii U, therefor eliminating the possibility of having a new Mario Party every year.

Hopefully MP10 for WiiU and/or 3DS :)
Maybe if they make the games they'll work together?

Well the handheld ones are usually named after the system they are on. MP for the 3DS & Wii U working together would be cool, though I'd much rather the number go to MP Wii U and MP 3DS being well MP 3D.

Don't really want it on 3DS, but absolutely want it for Wii U.

There should be on WiiU, it can add a lot of creative mini-games.

Eh, I doubt it. I'd hope that they would try to come up with something new for a Mario Party for the 3DS (whilst still keeping some old things......) If they did do that, they probably wouldn't reduce the graphics a drastic amount compared to the Wii's graphics. 3DS games do look an awful lot like Wii games most of the time.

As much as I can't wait for Mario Party 3D & Mario Party 10, I do hope we get at least a year break before they announce the games, especially if they go the Mario Kart route (which I hope they stick with) and release only one Mario Party on the 3DS & Wii U. (Besides, they could add new mini-games, characters & boards via DLC.)

Despite that, they actually may plan to this time.

I definitely think there will be a Mario Party game for both Wii U and 3DS. Although the series has had its ups and downs, it's still a very popular franchise, and it's my favorite game series of the overall Mario series. So, if you ask me, I think it's very possible.  :)

Yes for both. The Wii U hardware is a major leap from Wii, so the possibilities increase exponentially. That, plus the GamePad increase the possibilities even more. It'll be  foolish to not have a Mario Party game when advantages like these are so apparent.
