Mario Party: Island Tour to feature extensive single-card multiplayer modes



Making up for its lack of online play, Mario Party: Island Tour will feature the most extensive single-card multiplayer mode of any Nintendo 3DS game released thus far. According to this morning’s Nintendo Direct, a single game card will allow up to four players to locally play all 7 of the game’s varied maps, all 80 of the mini games on offer, a Freeplay mode, and more. To encourage everyone to buy the game however, it will also feature the “mini game tower,” a single player mode that pits you against Bowser’s minions in 30 floors of mini game madness. Mario Party: Island Tour will be released on November 22nd, alongside The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D World.

Is the newly revealed local multiplayer mode enough to entice you to purchase Mario Party: Island Tour?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth


  1. I didn’t think this was newly revealed, I thought they mentioned that you could access the whole game via download play?

    Oh well…it’s still not enough to make me forgive the lack of online but it’s tempting. I’ll pick it up at a later date.

  2. Same here. I actually want the game now, but it’ll have to wait until after the holidays, because A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D World obviously hold priority.

    The whole game isn’t available through download play: there’s the single player mode. But yeah, it would appear the whole multiplayer experience is available at any rate.

  3. I’ve bought this game for my son to play on his 3DS XL, and have an old original DS also.
    Can I use the old DS for the download play, or do I need a newer one?

  4. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to play a 3DS game like this on the DS family of systems at all, even through download play. You’ll need another 3DS (or a Nintendo 2DS, which is the same thing: it just can’t display images in stereoscopic 3D).

  5. When shopping on the internet see regardless of whether even
    more savings can be created by employing a cashback web site, this kind of
    as Quidco, and employing any discount codes which may be obtainable.

    All you need to do is head to the site, open up a few ASOS promo
    code sites that give you ASOS coupons and more and you could be on your way to fashion heaven sitting pretty in your own home with only an internet connection.

    com coupon codes have become a must have in my household.
