THE BUZZ: Nintendo has announced the official release date of Mario Party 9.

The game will hit stores March 2, in Europe, and March 11, in the U.S. Featuring 80 new mini games, “which will find players making pizzas, escaping haunted mansions, and even racing snowmobiles.”

EGM’s TAKE: Like most Mario Party games the objective is simple: collect more stars then your opponents by winning the various mini games. In a group this is fantastic fun with a lot of arguments usually breaking out, however, as a single player title it is severely lacking. A loose story is weaved around the mini games giving you at least some reason to want to beat the computer, but it just isn’t enough to hold interest without others around.

According to Nintendo, “The latest addition to the Mario Party series encourages you to think one step ahead of your opponents to collect the most Mini Stars and defeat Bowser. Bowser and his buddies have stolen all the Mini Stars in the sky and it is up to you to achieve the ultimate goal of winning them all back, in order to become the Super Star.”

Will we really feel like a Super Star though when no one was around to witness out victory?
