When it comes to local play, Super Mario Party has always been a pretty fun multiplayer pick, but its online offerings were always a little lackluster… Until now.

Nintendo is dropping a free update today that’ll allow online play for the following modes:

  • Mario Party
  • Partner Party
  • Free Play (Minigames)

Nintendo’s website also confirms a few other things worth noting. For example, all characters and maps are able as options regardless of your personal progress, and play data won’t be saved.

The following 10 mini-games also won’t be playable:

  • Strike It Rich
  • Time to Shine
  • Take a Stab
  • All-Star Swingers
  • Rhythm and Bruise
  • Pep Rally
  • Wiped Out
  • Fiddler on the Hoof
  • Clearing the Table
  • Baton and On

You’ll be able to download the update to Super Mario Party today, April 27th.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
