Super Mario Party Online Play Added In New Update (VIDEO)
It has been over two years since Super Mario Party arrived on the Nintendo Switch, allowing players to enjoy the friendship-ruining journey at home or on the go. That said, in order to enjoy such an experience, players would have had to have been in the same place, but that has now changed.
A free update has arrived for Super Mario Party that officially adds online play support for the title. That’s right, players no longer need to be in the same room to destroy relationships and have some fun while doing so. Mario Party, Partner Party, and the Minigames are all part of the online update, with the Online Mariothon no longer being the only thing available with online support.
After players update Super Mario Party, online play will be added to the following modes:
- Mario Party: The iconic board game mode where you roll dice to move and try to finish with the most Stars.
- Partner Party: A 2 vs. 2 team edition of Mario Party where you share your dice rolls with your partner and have free movement.
- Minigames: This is the place to go if you just want to focus on the minigames themselves.
This update is something players have likely been hoping for since Super Mario Party arrived on Nintendo Switch, and it is definitely one that would have been a smash hit were it to come out towards the beginning of the pandemic. Luckily, we had Animal Crossing to fill the void.
Super Mario Party is currently available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, with the free update that adds online play support being out now. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
