Get A Double Dose Of Mario For Today
Nintendo Australia has today given a double dose of Mario with the release of Paper Mario Color Splash for Wii U and Mario Party Star Rush for Nintendo 3DS.
Paper Mario: Color Splash is a hilarious action-adventure game that sees our hero discovering that Prism Island is being drained of its colour, taking it upon himself to recover the missing Big Paint Stars that have mysteriously gone missing. Through strategic use of Battle Cards and his new Paint Hammer, Mario will engage in puzzling battles to defeat enemies and splash paint all over Prism Island on his quest to get to the bottom of the colour conundrum.
Paper Mario Color Splash is out now in stores and via the Nintendo eShop.
This latest addition to the series has a new approach to the party, with quicker play and simultaneous turns between players, with plenty of strategy waiting to be unfurled. Those wishing to play with others can also download the free Mario Party: Star Rush – Party Guest software*, which means that up to four friends with their own Nintendo 3DS family system can enjoy a full multiplayer experience with just one copy of the full game between them. Those without the Party Guest software can still enjoy a limited selection of modes via Download Play.
To celebrate the release of Mario Party: Star Rush, Donkey Kong, Wario, Rosalina, and a glow-in-the-dark Boo will form the second series of Super Mario Collection amiibo, all launching tomorrow. On 5th November, this series will also be bolstered by the addition of Diddy Kong, Daisy and Waluigi. All of these new Super Mario Collection amiibo are compatible with Mario Party: Star Rush.
In addition to all of that, Mario keeps coming this year, with the release of Super Mario Run on iOS, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Mini.
