Mario Party Superstars First Thoughts

Yesterday, Nintendo Canada provided us with a review code for Mario Party Superstars for the Nintendo Switch. Here are my first thoughts on the game!


Mario Party Superstars is now available for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Canada provided with a digital code to review the game.

I’ve only played a little bit of the game so far but here are my thoughts on the game at the moment.

First of all, Superstars graphics are the best that Mario Party has ever looked! Everything from the menus to the boards to the mini-games absolutely shine on the Switch. This is a really good looking game.

Let’s talk about the mini-games so far! I’ve played a few: climbing up a beanstalk, shooting cannons at enemies, rolling around in a barrel, eating pizza, and swinging on a vine. Each of the mini-games has different controls but all of them are easy to pick and play and fun too.

I did try playing against some people online in a couple of puzzle mini-games and…well…I did awful. The online players are really good. I think I’ll have to practice the mini-games more before trying the online again!


Then there’s the board game! I played one match of Horror Land against the CPU. I was playing on easy mode so it wasn’t that difficult. The Horror Land map is really cool though. If you like Luigi’s Mansion, you’ll love this Mario Party map!

The board game mode is neat and I think it’ll be even better online. I will try playing against real people soon.

Mario Party Superstars has offline, local multiplayer, and online multiplayer too. Thats a lot of options. With tons of mini-games to play and the board games, it looks like Mario Party fans should be in for fun times.

I’m liking the game so far but I want to check out more of the mini-games, the other boards, and play more of the online multiplayer before giving my final review.

Did you pick up Mario Party Superstars this week? What do you think of it?

Thank you to Nintendo Canada for providing a digital code. Mario Party Superstars is now available via retail and in the Nintendo Switch eshop!
