Mario Party 9 release date announced

Wii revelry commences in March.

Wii minigame collection Mario Party 9 arrives in stores on 2nd March, Nintendo has announced.

The latest entry in the long-running series features 80 minigames and a variety of different modes.

New additions this time out are co-operative boss battles and Party Adventure Mode, which sees up to four players traversing the board in a vehicle while attempting to railroad opposition onto more challenging squares.

It's the first run-out for the franchise since the equally dreary Mario Party DS and Mario Party 8 on Wii launched back in 2007.
