Many are considering this the games biggest flaws, as, despite being a fun party game to play with friends, it would give players an objective in addition to entertainment. With plenty of Mario games and spin-off titles being released over the years many are considering this a big flaw on the part of Nintendo.

The game will no doubt bring back quite a lot of nostolgia for those who played the Nintendo 64 or GameCube iterations of Mario Party. Regardless if players are new or returning, the game is sure to be a blast!
