The first Mario Party game kicked off way back in 1998, and Mario and friends are still celebrating with the upcoming release of Mario Party Superstars.

This new release harks back to those classic days of the series, featuring five boards from the Nintendo 64 Mario Party games (Yoshi’s Tropical Island, Space Land, Peach’s Birthday Cake, Woody Woods and Horror Land), plus 100 minigames from across the history of the series on its various formats.
