The lights are on
As Joe, Matt, and Adam made explicitly clear during the classic Mario Party 3 episode of Replay, Nintendo's happy-go-lucky collection of minigames isn't for everyone. But if you're into that sort of thing, Nintendo has released a new trailer to whet your palette for the next installment.
With the Wii U on the horizon, many of us expected Wii library to close shop after the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. But as this new trailer for the family friendly Mario Party 9 demonstrates, fans have one more reason to keep their Wii out of the dustbin of history.
For those eagerly awaiting their next visit to the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario Party 9 releases on Nintendo Wii March 11.

looks like a good creative step up from the previous installments
I love the cover. Not very impressed with covers lately, although the gears of war and uncharted covers were good.
Cant wait for the Replay episode of this game!!
that bullet bill riding segment at 0:41 looked awesome but you probably have to use motion controls :(
Not really a new gameplay trailer but still a game I'd enjoy with friends and family.
Wow. This actually looks worth buying; It kind of looks like Mario Party 3 (which I thoroughly enjoyed, and still do.) If there's at least one boss battle for every stage, I'm in.
I'm liking what I see, looks like a big improvement from other installments. Plus, I want to squeeze as much as I can out of my Wii before it becomes obsolete!
looks like tremendous fun. can't wait to bust this game out when my older brother comes to visit so it'll be like the good ol days playing Mario Party 3 on N64
isnt that the same music from fortune street
This looks much better than previous releases. My wife loves the first game and we play it occasionally. If I can tolerate that, then I can tolerate this.
That looked fun. Were boss battles added in the 8th one? Last Mario party game I played was 7
Something about that one course looks a lot like Animal Crossing to me
