US: Mario Party 2 Coming To Wii U Virtual Console Tomorrow

If you are a fan of the Mario Party franchise then you will be pleased to know that Mario Party 2 will be arriving on the Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow. The game, which was originally released for the Nintendo 64 will be released on December 22nd. Here’s a quick overview of the entertaining title.

Get ready to party like it’s the year 2000 all over again, complete with fancy costumes, bags of surprises, and games galore! Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom friends return for a brand-new round of Bowser-bashing board game action. Each of your favorite characters don different themed outfits to take part in five fun-packed Adventure Boards: Pirate Land, Western Land, Space Land, Mystery Land, and Horror Land. Then battle Bowser on his own specific board…if you’re brave enough.

  1. I hope they bring the 1st and 3rd, the first Mario Party should have different control schemes for games that use rotating controls like that tug of war (just saying it brings back painful memories, they are not Dead Memories in my heart unfortunately).

  2. Rehash.. Rehash.. REHASH.
    Seriously fanboys, you folks can’t get off that Mario dick huh lol…
    It’s ok though. The gaming community no longer considers you gamers rather than fake ass gamers if that helps any.

    1. You’re right man.. a game releasing on the virtual console is terrible. These shit heads making a, widely loved, N64 game available for a current console to make it more accessible is just TERRIBLE

  3. To anyone who hasn’t played Mario Party 2, I HIGHLY recommend it. It’s the Mario Party I have the most fond memories of. It has some of my favorite boards and mini games. Such a great game. I think 2 and 5 are my two favorites. I loved 5 because of the orbs.

  4. I find it funny how some of the people are complaining about this game being virtual console, meanwhile Sony is charging $14 to play PS2 games on the PS4. This isn’t even a rehash, they’re just offering the game on the Wii U. Sony and Microsoft have offered more rehashes than Nintendo has, offering games from last generation for a full $60 as if you didn’t just play the same game a few months ago. At least Nintendo isn’t charging the price from when the game was released. And if you’re going to be complaining about games being rehashed, you better not be one of those gamers that play yearly instalments of the exact same game that has such a small difference in play style.

  5. Is it too much to hope this game selling better than Star Rush on 3DS during the holiday season will make Ninty realize how much we hated the latest Mario Party games? If Tanabe has any of his filthy tentacles in this franchise, too, doubtful since he thinks FedshitForce & Color Splash did nothing wrong.
