E3 2018: Super Mario Party Coming To Nintendo Switch

It's time to collect coins and ruin friendships in the most amusing way possible on Nintendo's latest console.

Today on Nintendo's annual livestream E3 press conference the company dropped a ton of special new treats for its Switch owners, including the latest iteration of its long-running multiplayer mini-game competition, Super Mario Party. Much like its predecessors, the newest version of Super Mario Party comes with a ton of innovative and unique party games for fans to check out. 

One of the more interesting aspects of the upcoming Super Mario Party is that some of the mini-games will make use of more than Switch. The trailer that was run during the conference showed two Switch screens being placed flat on a table to make an overhead viewed map for a tank fighting mini-game. Other games that I was able to catch a glimpse of included a tricycle race that showed players rotating their analog buttons to pedal towards victory, a flying race, and a baseball game where the pitches are shot out of a cannon.

Super Mario Party has always been a solid series and the integration of the Switch's dynamic screens and controller look like they are going to lend themselves extremely well to the multiplayer madness. This latest version was just revealed for the first time, but with a release date of October 5 of this year, it's likely we're going to be hearing more about the game very soon. Hopefully, we'll be able to grab some hands-on time with it while the Shacknews crew is here at E3.

Super Mario Party will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 5, 2018.
