Are people tired of them? The most recent sold 1.76m according to Nintendo's official numbers and is the 9th best selling game on the console.

Gamers are tired of them.

Nintendo enthusiasts, casuals, and children very much enjoy the thoughtless gameplay.

So in other words, the target demographics arent tired of them.

If true it's a waste of time. I can't find any possible reason for making a new MP game, when the WiiU already has one. I'd prefer that they focus on the NX, tbh.

I think you mean

 

  • 100% luck-based gameplay
  • a series of shallow mini-games
  • wasting time on a bland party game in the name of local co-op when better options like Rocket League exist
Yeah. Embarrassing. Silly you.

 

Then why play Rocket League when better options like Mario Kart 8 exist? You arent really going anywhere with those arguments, some still actually likes the franchise. Shallow or not.

Also a good point. Mario Party is unnecessary, shallow, and quite frankly a cash-in.

Not exactly, the target demographics are mostly mindless and buy Mario Party games the same way sheeple go to see Transformer movies. It's less of a "let's make a good game" and more of a cash grab on Nintendo's part. Just like Mario and Sonic at the Olympics.

To everybody saying "Please no! Waste of money!": Nintendo is currently squeezing the last money out of the Wii U. Since the NX will launch at the end of the fiscal year they need something else to make money. The 3DS alone is not enough. That's why they are making these new Splatoon amiibo or the new Splatoon Wii U Bundle for Japan. Getting as much as possible out of it with the fewest effort. A new Mario Party game with the same MP10 engine and just some new maps and minigames for the holidays would fit perfectly into it. I trust my source. This source isn't lying.

um no, Mario Party (and most party games in general) is aimed primarily at children and families which is who you just said the game sold to.

Its less of a "lets make a quick cash grab" and more of a light hearted, simple game for children and their parents to play together.

A quick cash grab would be something like Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, not Mario Party

A few days ago I have posted that one of my sources told me that a new Xbox console will launch in 2017. Shortly after that several big news sites reported the same. This is the reason why I give this source so much credibility that I post the next thing the source told me. According to that source Mario Party 11 is in development for Wii U and will launch later this year. It will be the last First Party Wii U exclusive game.

As I said after the Xbox thing ended being true I also believe this. 

Where are the other 10 or so games you were expecting for Wii U?

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

I'm probably the only person here that hopes this is true.

Mario Party 10 (and 9 thanks to backwards compatibility) has been the only thing keeping my Wii U alive and regardless of the game format my friends and I still enjoy the hell out of it (with or without alcohol involved).

Me too, Bowser party on MP10 is the best mode in the entire series.



I think its a good move by Nintendo, it would be quick to develop using the Mario Party 10 engine and will have 1 million sales nailed on. Even Mario Party 10 which has been very divisive has easily cleared over 1.5million.

And why are they not announced like Zelda?
