Amazon lists Super Mario Party Joy-Con bundle for release in the states

If Amazon is to be believed, the Super Mario Party Joy-Con Bundle is going to see release in the states. They have added a placeholder listing for the bundle on their website, and it includes a Nov. 16th, 2018 release date.

Late to the party? no problem. The Ultimate way to celebrate the Super Mario party game is here: this set Includes both the Super Mario party game and a set of Joy-Con Controllers in neon green and neon yellow.There's no better way to enjoy the variety of modes including the original 4-player Mario party series board game, and 80 new minigames packed with wildly different challenges and clever uses of Joy-Con Controllers.

The blurb above makes it pretty clear that this is the bundle that we've seen in other parts of the world. I guess we'll just have to wait for Nintendo to officially announce it now!

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

Super Mario Party - Famitsu print ad

Might not be the best time for Nintendo to put out a print ad for Super Mario Party with Joy-Con plastered all over it. Joy-Con are extremely hard to find in Japan right now! Hopefully Nintendo can remedy that situation, as I'm sure there's many a party-goer feeling pretty bummed about not having the right hardware for a party!

Super Mario Party - Denjin Getcha segment

I don't care what Master Higgins plays. I'll watch him on any live-stream no matter what! Just blows my mind that we get to see Master Higgins play games all these years later. I think it's about time for the Master to get another installment in his own franchise!

Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, and Super Mario Party among most sought-after games this holiday season

No surprise here, but Nintendo's heavy-hitters for the holiday season are getting some big attention. A study by Nielsen shows that Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Party are giving big guns like Call of Duty and Red Dead Redemption 2 a run for their money. Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee are definitely in the mix as well, which should make for quite a nice debut at launch. To get more info, check out Nielsen's full report.

Super Mario Party boosting sales of Joy-Cons around the world, causing shortages

The only way to play Super Mario Party is with a Joy-Con. Some people already have a set, but if you're looking for a real party, you'll need four Joy-Con altogether. That's why it's no surprise to see people snatching up Joy-Con bundles left and right.

As a matter of fact, the rush to purchase Joy-Cons has caused a bit of a shortage around the world! Various places across Europe, as well as Japan, have all reported low stock for Joy-Con, and sometimes no stock at all! Hopefully Nintendo can remedy the situation soon.

Super Mario Party being modded to add in new characters

Characters that have been successfully modded in the game include Mr. L (evil Luigi), Dark Bowser, Pink Gold Peach, and Cyan Yoshi. It’s a matter of time before we see a Bowsette mod in the game.

Mr. L is never going to see an official inclusion in Super Mario Party, but at least we can all pretend via this fan mod. Some fans who aren't happy with the roster of Super Mario Party have taken to modding in their own characters, including Mr. L, Dark Bowser, Pink Gold Peach, and Cyan Yoshi.
