Nintendo has Super Mario Party on the Switch so that people can play against each other online. Nintendo announced this in a video on Tuesday. Super Mario Party came out for the Switch in October 2018.
Since the game was released, it could only be played online to a very limited extent. Only ten of the eighty games out Super Mario Party were playable online. In addition, the board game mode was missing from the game.
In Mario Party up to four people can play against each other. In the most famous mode, players complete a course on a virtual board game and play mini games in the meantime. Whoever has the most stars at the end of the game wins.
After the update, seventy of the eighty mini-games will be playable online. There are two ways to play multiplayer. This allows people to play against friends or anyone else, as long as they have the unique password for the game. It is not possible to play against random players.
To play online, a paid subscription for Nintendo Switch online is required. The update itself is free.
