Mario Party 10

Mario Party fans will want to check out the above video! Nintendo showed a few things not included in the regular E3 demo.

Bowser’s Fire Bar Fury

– Set in a square arena in a deadly lava pit
– Use the GamePad gyroscopic abilities to tilt the controller to move two fire bars
– One goes up and down, the other left and right
– Defending characters need to run and jump to avoid the fire bars as the clock counts down

Bowser’s Bad Breath

– Hold the GamePad and tilt left/right to aim a giant Bowser at the other players
– Do so while also pressing A to shoot fireballs
– Defending players can only run around the square arena to avoid the deadly projectiles
– Bowser moves slowly during the game to give them a fighting chance

Bowser’s Painball Pit

– Set in a pinball machine controlled by Browser
– The space is empty except for a large, heavy disc that can either impede the spiked balls Bowser flicks through the machine or trap the other characters
– If a spike ball falls through the bottom of the machine, a new one quickly replaces it to keep two present at all times

Bowser’s Wicked Wheel

– Set in a hamster wheel
– 2 electrified rods on either side
– Shake the Wiimote quickly as it spins to run away from the elctric rod
– The Bowser player swipes on the screen to make the wheel spin as fast as they’d like
– Swipe backwards to stop the wheel
– This causes players to run into the electric rod in front if they don’t stop fast enough
