Interesting Facts

  • Once the game is completed the tune playing while the credits are scrolling is actually a heavily remixed version of the Mario Bros. Tune.

  • The second Mario game (to Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars) allowing you to buy items

  • The second Mario game to allow up to 4 players, the first was Mario Kart 64

  • Long after the release of Mario Party, infact even after the release of Mario Party 2, Nintendo bought out a Mario Party glove.

  • This glove was given away free and was intended for gamers who played a lot not to blister their hands due to the way the n64 controls were, Nintendo required proof of purchase of the Mario Party games to send these gloves out. The gloves were not logo bearing and had no Mario Characters on.

Some of the mini games names are puns, such as below:-
