Get ready for group gaming this month with new releases
Video Game Warriors - Reuben Gonzales
Grab your friends and get set to party like its 1998 with the return of Nintendo's hit fran- chise Mario Party.
Super Mario Party sees the return of Toad as the host of the insane board game/ minigame extravaganza.
The game returns to its roots with new game boards that players will have to navigate to locate stars. The players will take turns hitting the dice block to move their character through the map. After all players turns have passed, there will be the traditional minigame.
The Switch's Joy-con controller can be used giving players the games that use normal button controls and motion control games.
Just like other Mario Par- ty games, this one will feature brand new characters and games for friends to hate each
other over. Nintendo pulled out all the
stops with this game with one of the largest rosters of play- able characters in the franchise, including Mario, Luigi, Rosalina, Dry Bones, Boo, Koopa Troopa, Hammer Bro, Princess Peach, Princess Dai- sy, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Shy Guy, Bowser, Wario, and Waluigi, along with newcomers Bowser Jr., Diddy Kong, Pom Pom, Monty Mole, and Goomba.
The game has more than 80 new minigames that come in four players, 1vs 3, 2 vs 2, Ally, and Co-op, that will keep the party going late into the night.
Super Mario Party will also feature a franchise- first online
multiplayer version, that will al- low players to go head to head, team up, or just play games with friends across the world.
Super Mario world will not support pro controllers and will also not support handheld mode, as it seems to be more formatted for the big screen.
If pre-purchased through Nintendo, players will receive double Gold Points.
The party starts Oct. 5, so get your friends and snacks ready to stay up late not doing home- work.

Yes, that was read correctly; Finally, after years of fans beg- ging for the much-anticipated support, it looks like it will fi- nally be happening.
Microsoft has even said that it will be up to developers if their game gets the upgrade.
Warframe will be the first game to get the change.
Most wired or wireless USB keyboards and mice will work, Microsoft says. They will also be teaming up with Razer to bring high-end gear specifically for the Xbox One.
