Super Mario Party supports up to four player multiplayer, but the Switch only comes with a pair of Joy-Con for up to two. In response, Nintendo has announced a special Super Mario Party Bundle that includes another pair of neon Joy-Con controllers. The Super Mario Party Bundle is out Nov. 16 for $99.99.
A single half Joy-Con retails for around $50, while a pair of Joy-Con sells for an astonishingly $80, making this a very good deal if you have a big family (or friends) who plan on playing Super Mario Party ($60). At full price, the bundle will save you about $40.The included Joy-Con are given a distinctive color scheme at neon green and neon yellow.
Super Mario Party features 80 mini-games in its classic four-player multiplayer board game set up. The mini-games utilize the precise motion controls of the Joy-Con. Two Switch systems can be paired together for special series of games in Toad’s Rec Room that utilize both screens together. A new cooperative series of mini-games can be tackled in the River Survival mode.
Super Mario Party also takes the series online for the first time. Online Mariothon features a series of five rotating mini-games, with leaderboards, rankings, and rewards. A subscription to Nintendo Switch Online is required to access the online mode.
Super Mario Party is available now, and rated E for Everyone. The Joy-Con bundle is out Nov. 16.
