Download Play lets four players enjoy the party using just a single Game Card*

16th January 2014 – Join Mario and friends for a party in the clouds in Mario Party: Island Tour launching across Europe for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on 17th January. It’s never been easier to get the party started in multiplayer as Mario Party: Island Tour only requires one copy of the game to be enjoyed with up to three other friends* using the Nintendo 3DS system’s Download Play feature. Whether you’re a fan or new to the series, this latest instalment of the madcap virtual board game has plenty for everyone, with 7 brand new game boards, 80 addictive minigames and a variety of modes for family and friends to enjoy.

Choose from a range of beloved Nintendo characters to play as, such as Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach and Toad, and party across 7 uniquely themed game boards each with different goals and play styles. For instance, play chicken with Banzai Bills on Banzai Bill’s Mad Mountain and try your luck to see whether risky moves get you to the finish first, or collect boosters to tune up your rocket and race to the finish on Rocket Road. Each game board is jam-packed with its own range of special cards or dice that could turn the tide of the game and are won through exciting minigames. In Mario Party: Island Tour it’s always your party, so you can choose whether more skill or luck will be required when you pick a game board of your preference, or even determine the difficulty level of the minigames.
