For those with a Wii console looking for some traditional Nintendo fare, Mario Party 9 is due for launch shortly in New Zealand, promising (as each iteration does) new mini-games, new gameplay, but also the good old Mario Party fun that most of the games in the series have delivered on.
We get the game along with Australia, just behind Europe (March 2), and just before America on March 11. Japan falls behind with an April launch. No sign of a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection logo on the box art though, meaning sadly no online multiplayer which would have breathed new life into the formula. There’s always next console eh?
