The litlgeeks are at it again with, guess what? More amiibos! This time, it’s Mario Party 10 for Wii U and the Mario Party series of amiibos! Please click like, share, subscribe to our Youtube channel! Check out below the video for links to buy all the great amiibos featured in the video.
We gave you a little insight as to what amiibos are, and what they do in our last amiibo video, and it was really more about how they work with Super Smash Brothers for Wii U. Nintendo has put out a shiny new game with great new amiibo features. Let’s check out Mario Party 10!
Mario Party 10
Mario Party 10 is an incredibly cute and fun game for the Nintendo Wii U. You can play with up to 5 players, but that requires that you have the game pad (which comes with all Wii U consoles) and 4 Nintendo Wii Motes (sold separately). Players roll dice and navigate a game board encountering bonuses, traps and mini-games along the way.
Bowser Party – Up to five players can join a Bowser party. One player gets to use the Wii U game pad and act as Bowser, chasing the players around the board. In this mode, Bowser is the focus of mini-games, and he plays against the other players (1-4). Bowser wins if he stops the players from reaching the end goal. If the players reach the end goal, earned stars are counted out (from bonuses and mini-games) and the player with the most stars wins overall (if there is more than one player left standing).
Mario Party – This mode allows up to four players to play Mario Party like you might remember from Mario Party’s 1-9. It’s a 4 player board game where you roll to navigate the board, win stars through bonuses and mini-games and the player with the most stars at the end of the game will win.
Amiibo Party – This is why we are here!! Players can scan in any playable Mario Party game character amiibo (Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Rosalina, Donkey Kong and Yoshi from the original series of amiibos, or any of the Mario Party series amiibos, Mario, Gold Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Yoshi, Toad). In this mode, the amiibos are used to interact with several aspects of the game, from rolling the dice to opening a box. The player must tap their amiibo on the game pad in order to make some things happen. It should be said though, that the player can make those same things happen by just pressing a button on the game pad. Nintendo went to lengths to further integrate amiibos into gameplay, but outside of scanning them in, you can play the game and put them back on the shelf. It is neat to see each amiibo in 3D on the game board, vs CPU or non-amiibo characters that show up as board game paper cut out pieces.
Other amiibos – amiibos that are not playable characters in Mario Party 10 can still be scanned in to the game. These amiibos give in game bonuses and scratch cards to the players to help them along their way.
Be Careful! – As of now, amiibos can still only be written to by one game at a time. If you have leveled up your original Mario amiibo in Smash Brothers, changing him over to Mario Party 10 will erase the Smash Brothers data from him. I would encourage you to pick up the Mario Party specific amiibos, if for no other reason, so you don’t mess up your game saves. That said, the amiibos used for bonus gifts, that you can’t actually play as in Mario Party 10 are not written to by Mario Party 10, and can be used with both games at the same time.
Gold Mario – Gold Mario is a Walmart exclusive that is mighty hard to come by! Using Gold Mario in game unlocks the special Gold Token, which can otherwise only be unlocked by unlocking all game tokens.
