Nintendo Winter Catalog 2005:

    The More the Merrier

    The entire gang is back for more action as they take a wild cruise around the world! Players everywhere will set their controllers to fun as they run, jump, swim and fly through more than 80 new minigames. But this party's about to get a lot bigger... because EIGHT people can now battle each other at one time. The Nintendo GameCube Mic also makes a grand return, which means plenty of voice-activated madness for everyone. The addition of two new playable characters, Dry Bones and Birdo, will ensure that even seasoned Mario Party vets can experience a new world of wackiness.

    Your Passport to Fun!

    Grab seven of your closest friends and get ready for the wildest, craziest party ever! With six new boards, two new characters and dozens upon dozens of new minigames, Mario Party 7 will have you rockin' as you sail the seven seas!Features

    • Explore the world with six brand-new game boards! As Mario and friends embark on an around-the-world cruise, each board serves as an exotic port of call--China, the Netherlands, Egypt, Venice, the United States and Bowser World! Each one is a lovely vacation spot in the real world...but Bowser has other plans!
    • Up to eight players can participate in the action – four more than the previous Mario Party titles! In a four-player game, each participant will have his or her own Controller. In an eight-player match, two players will share one Controller.
    • 86 all-new mini-games, 10 of which use the GCN Microphone.
    • Exchange your "mileage points" and items for awesome unlockables and other fun prizes.

    From leaping over electrified hurdles to avoiding a mole with a giant hammer, each game is a party in itself! The addition of two new playable characters, Birdo and Dry Bones, adds to the fun.

    Story

    Toadsworth has invited Mario and all his friends to go on a luxury cruise around the world. However, someone gets left behind ... Bowser! Furious at being omitted from the exclusive guest list, the Koopa King vows revenge! When the cruise ship arrives at its first destination, the passengers discover that Bowser has turned their vacation paradise into a stress-filled madhouse!

    The chief goal is to gather stars, but each board requires you to do that in different ways. You can buy a star each time you ascend Pagoda Peak -- if you have enough cash. In Neon Heights, you pay to open a treasure box. You might find a star -- or a booby prize!

    Characters

    Playable characters include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Daisy, Wario, Waluigi, Boo and Toadette, along with newcomers Dry Bones and Birdo. Toadsworth hosts the cruise. Peevish Goombas peddle power-ups and smooth-talking Shy Guys will offer you tryouts for the newest action movie or a big-league contract. Generous Donkey Kong will offer you special chances to win coins or even stars. Watch out for Bowser and the Koopa Kids, though --- you'll have to play hard just to break even against these scalawags!

    Bottom Line

    Bursting with personality and great gameplay, Mario Party 7 is a blast. This party boat sets sail November 7!
