Overview / Mini-Game List

Mario and his closest friends are trying to restore peace to Dream World by racing around a collection of all new game boards and tons of surprises await. Mario Party 5 sports new game boards, more than 60 new mini games, new playable characters, an expanded one-player mode, and, of course, the multi-player madness that made it famous in the first place.


New game boards and over 60 new mini games put your button mashing skills to the test. Players duke it out in traditional, new duel, or everyone vs. Bowser mini-games. A new system changes the location of event spaces, adding a whole new dimension to the game boards. More of your favourite characters are coming to the party; there are new and expanded roles for Toad, Koopa Kid, and others.


The single-player Story Mode unfolds much faster than before. You'll play against the Koopa Kid Brigade-a trio of Koopa Kids who take their turns simultaneously, cutting down significantly on the wait time and letting you get back to the action more quickly
