    Let's Get This Party Moving!

    Shake, saw, paint and much more with the Wii Remote!

    The world’s most popular party video game franchise is getting a lot crazier in Mario Party 8 for the Wii. Whether you’re shaking up cola cans or lassoing barrels, you and your friends will be drawn into the action like never before using the Wii Remote!

    Play with motion control! Row your way down a river, punch a statue to pieces, steer race cars and mopeds, and handle a balancing pole while walking a tightrope!
    • Play with the pointer! Drag and drop decorations onto cakes, shoot Boos in haunted house, quickly choose your answer in a game show!
    • Mash those Wii Remote buttons! Jump and pummel your way through a football brawl, hop and run across an obstacle course of spinning platforms!
    • Mario Party 8 includes six brand-new boards, dozens of minigames and many new modes

    In a franchise first, you can collect special power-ups and transform your character into a boulder that smashes rivals or a coin-sucking vampire! Mario Party 8 includes “extra-large” minigames like Star Carnival Bowling and Table Menace.

    Please check back for more information on this game as the release date approaches.
