Mario Party is being taken into arcades by Capcom. Mario Party: Mysterious Challenge World will be revealed at the Japanese Amusement Expo on February 19 where more will hopefully be revealed about the game.
As reported by Polygon Capcom, the developer of the arcade game have launched a new website that gives a hint as to what the machine will look like. Though it doesn’t reveal much, it does show that the game will be appearing in 2016 and will be based on six players taking part in the action.
Polygon say that the game will be played by six players, and they will take part in a set of mini games. This is what we’ve seen on the Wii U console, so we can expect similar action to what we’ve previously seen. The style of games should easily be replicated in arcades and may even be more fun in a social location like that.
Where the Mario Party: Mysterious Challenge World differs from the home version of the game is the roulette table-style set-up. The six screens that surround the main table will also be touch panels which will be an interesting way to play.
We’ll be sure to find out more about the arcade game on February 19 so we’ll have a few weeks to wait for the big reveal. We can be sure though that it will play similar to Mario Party 10 on the Wii U.
