There was lots of excitement heading into Nintendo’s E3 2021 showcase yesterday, and a huge surprise was the reveal of a new Mario Party Superstars.

Some of the biggest showings at Nintendo’s E3 2021 Direct were Breath of the Wild 2 along with the reveal of Kazuya Mishimia from Tekken for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We didn’t get to see the much-rumoured Switch Pro, but this was expected due to the event’s emphasis on software.

The imminent future is fantastic for Nintendo aficionados and this is all because there is an incredible line-up of titles set to release this year.

How many boards are in Mario Party Superstars?

Five classic boards from the N64 era have been confirmed by Nintendo, and these include Space Land and Peach’s Birthday Cake. You will race against others to get the most amount of stars atop the sugary birthday cake, meanwhile Space Land will ask players to hold onto as many coins as possible in defiance of a Bowser Coin Beam.

Nintendo’s website also confirms that there will be 100 classic mini-games from the N64 and GameCube eras. Some of these mini-games include Shy Guy Says and Mushroom Mix-Up, and you will be able to play against four mates in local or online multiplayer.
