This week’s North American Wii U Virtual Console title is Mario Party 2. That’s according to Nintendo’s website, which has it listed for release tomorrow.

We have the following overview from the site:

“Get ready to party like it’s the year 2000 all over again, complete with fancy costumes, bags of surprises, and games galore! Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom friends return for a brand-new round of Bowser-bashing board game action. Each of your favorite characters don different themed outfits to take part in five fun-packed Adventure Boards: Pirate Land, Western Land, Space Land, Mystery Land, and Horror Land. Then battle Bowser on his own specific board…if you’re brave enough.”

Mario Party 2 will set you back $9.99.

    Oh God after years of wait finally a Mario party game on VC next one we need is MP3

      And MP1, I’m sure they’ll fix the control stick mini-games.

    too late all hype is gone…

    How’s the lag on N64 VC WiiU titles? (if any)

    • Coonfoot

      I can’t tell you how it is for all of them, but I know Donkey Kong 64 has pretty much no lag on the VC.

      • Adrian Brown

        mmm I see, I don’t think this game would be as enjoyable with lag.

    Why they never publish MP1 on VC?

    • Coonfoot

      Because of all the palms that were blistered playing those rotate-the-control-stick-a-lot mini-games. Unless Nintendo can come up with a port that makes those mini-games safer to play, we’re never seeing the game on any VC.

        Which is stupid on Nintendo’s end. Today’s controllers are not that bad, compared to the N64’s.

    • Addy

      Because the rotating the analog stick that was made of hard plastic flesh rendering material with their palm gave then PTSD.

    This is so much better than last year’s horrible update where we only got Super Mario Galaxy while Europe got both Super Mario RPG and Super Mario 64 DS!

    *sigh* Once again, MP1 remains in the vault.
