Upcoming 3DS title Mario Party Star Rush is set to include seven modes of gameplay, if reports coming straight from Gamescom 2016 are anything to be believed.

Twitter user NintenDaan was first to break the news, tweeting that the demo of the game available at the European trade show was actually the game in its entirety.

In the replies to his original tweet, NintenDaan highlights the key modes present in Mario Party Star Rush:

  • Character Museum: “Look at characters you’ve collected, amiibo option, can use them as a main hub character.”
  • Minigames: “Free-for-all, boss, bowser, coinathlon options.”
  • Toad Scramble: “various grid based boards, three worlds open in demo (grass, ocean, ghost house).”
  • Coinathlon: “collect many coins in dedicated 60 second minigames, can use items to stop in tracks, every coin counts as space, three laps.”
  • Balloon Bash: “be quick with collecting coins on this mini board, 20 turns, minigames at end of each round.”
  • Rhythm Recital: “musical minigame using the touchscreen. Play famous Mario tunes. Each character has instrument.”
  • Multiplayer: “download and local options, guest download data can be transferred to final game.”

Mario Party Star Rush is expected to release in North America on Friday, November 4th.
