Mario Party 10, developed by Nd Cube and published by Nintendo, came out for the WiiU console exclusively on March 20th, 2015 in the U.S., just 8 days after it was released in Japan.

In the game, 1 to 4 players compete against each other to have the most stars and coins, which are mainly obtained through victories in mini-games. These mini-games encompass a wide variety of types of play—from free-for-all battles to cooperative puzzles and more. The game is the second in the main series to have characters all move together in a “car” as opposed to separately across the board as in Mario Parties 1-8.

Mario Party 10 includes a standard Mario Party mode as well as two new modes. One of these is the 5-player Bowser Party mode. In Bowser Party, one player controls the long-time adversary of Mario and Friends against the other four players. Amiibo Party ties in with the popular line of figures Nintendo recently introduced. Each Amiibo unlocks a board to play Mario Party on.
