Mario Party Star Rush Review: Nintendo 3DS Game For Kids #3DSKidForADay


The kids had a chance to get their hands on Mario Party Star Rush for the Nintendo 3DS and were thrilled to do so. There are a variety of ways to engage with Mario, Toad, Luigi and the rest of the game in this party-styled game. In fact, there are 7 modes of play to entertain your little ones.


But why play alone when you can get everyone involved. And hey! While you are at it, grab a few mustaches and have a TRUE Mario bash. I mean – I cannot STAND how CUTE this photo is. Caleb with a mustache? I didn’t think I would see that sight for years to come. 🙂

Mario Party Star Rush offers a variety of fun. You can dive into minigames, join up to three players over local wireless, or check out the seven different modes of play – including Toad Scramble, a mode with open maps where everyone plays as Toad, but Mushroom Kingdom allies are waiting to take down bosses in mini-games. Super fun!

What else can you expect?
