REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 6, 2004 - Good parties may run late, but great parties run all night - and all day with Mario PartyÃ‚Â® 6, which launches today exclusively for Nintendo GameCube™. Players can keep the party going indefinitely with this rowdy new party game.
Players move familiar characters like Mario™ and Donkey KongÃ‚Â® around six new game boards, and can enjoy 80 new party-rockin' mini-games, some of which change as time passes from day to night. Mini-games have always been at the heart of Mario Party fun, and this new installment of the franchise keeps the tradition going.
"Whether you're a night owl or an early bird, this is the game for you," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "With the holidays fast approaching, Mario Party 6 has family-friendly action, making it the perfect game for holiday entertaining, appealing to every party animal in the family."
In Mario Party 6, players can move around the game board faster than ever before, providing the inspiration to keep the action going all day and all night. With the multiplayer functionality of Mario Party 6, up to four players can participate in the action as they compete to see who will win and be crowned champion.
The latest development in video games has players interacting with and playing games in new and exciting ways. Mario Party 6 keeps this trend alive through the use of a cool new accessory: the Nintendo GameCube Mic, packaged with the game at no extra charge. The microphone plugs into a memory card port and allows players to control certain mini-games using voice commands. Mario Party 6, Rated E for Everyone, is available now at an MSRP of $49.99.
