Fo the second week in a row, Nintendo has shipped a Mario game. Last week saw Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii; today, the perennial plumber is appearing on the Nintendo DS in Mario Party DS.
The latest installment in the popular Mario Party series introduces five new boards and more than 70 minigames, playable for the first time ever on the Nintendo DS. Up to four DS owners can compete via local wireless using only one game card.
Mario Party DS combines the easy-to-learn fun of classic board games with the wireless features of Nintendo DS. Up to four players can use the stylus, touch-screen and built-in microphone to party their way through dozens of minigames that feature classic Mario characters and dozens of challenges, including twisting shapes, flipping burgers or battling for precious coins.
