Mario Party is the Nintendo franchise that just keeps on giving. The reception for the last couple titles in the series have been lukewarm, but there's still a pretty dedicated following out there for the Nintendo-themed multiplayer party games — we guess even on a portable like the 3DS.
So, Mario Party Star Rush is in development and will launch on November 4th alongside some new amiibo figures including Daisy, Waluigi, Boo, and Wario, Rosalina, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

Mario Party Star Rush trailer:
This new Mario Party game for Nintendo 3DS takes the fan-favorite series in new directions to make it more fast-paced and portable friendly. The main mode, “Toad Scramble,” uses a new open style of map that allows up to four players to move around freely instead of traditional linear space movements. Also, because the four players roll dice at the same time, players no longer have to wait for others to finish their turns. Players pick different-colored Toad characters to navigate the game map, and familiar characters from the Super Mario series are scattered all over the map. As players encounter these characters, they will help the player throughout the game.
Mario Party Star Rush launches on Nov. 4, alongside new amiibo figures in the Super Mario series (sold separately). The lineup includes Daisy, Waluigi and Boo, who make their amiibo figure debut, and the Boo figure even glows in the dark! New Wario, Rosalina, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong figures will also launch. Each of these figures will be compatible with Mario Party Star Rush.
