The original board game style has been kicked up a gear as there's more to do and more to think about. There're deeper strategic elements to think about as well as an all-new way to play with the Joy-Cons and new modes.
If you're feeling a bit nostalgic you can go back to the original board game-style map OR you can pair up two Switch consoles and enjoy modes like Toad's Rec Room.
Growing up, I didn't have appropriate consoles to play Mario Party and have only played the games two or three times in my life. Secretly, I was hoping we'd get news of a new game coming to the Switch and ho' boy am I excited.
You've only got to wait until October 5th 2018 to get your hands on it, too.
