As part of Nintendo’s weird new obsession with trailers that focus on actual human beings living actual human lives, it’s not surprising that we would see a multi-ethnic group of young adults promoting some Nintendo game at this year’s E3. What might be a little surprising, though, is that they’ve been deployed to promote an unexpected game: Super Mario Party.

The Mario Party™ series is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system with super-charged fun for everyone! The original board game style has been kicked up a notch with deeper strategic elements, like specific Dice Blocks for each character. The game also introduces all-new ways to play, including Joy-Con™ controller enabled minigames, and new modes to enjoy with family and friends. Board game play goes back to the four-player basics as you take turns and race across the board searching for Stars. You can also pair up two Nintendo Switch systems and delight in this dynamic play style, such as in the new Toad’s Rec Room mode. With new modes and new minigames coupled with original board game play, the party starts anywhere, anytime, and with all kinds of players. Super Mario Party is available October 5th!

It's been a while since we’ve seen the Mario Party series, so it’s not an unwelcome addition to the E3 roster. In fact, it looks like they’re doing some cool stuff with it, even if it seems to require two Switches in order for some of these minigames to work. Plus, I’m not sure I’d want to take my Switch camping, but then, I’m not part of a multi-ethnic group of young gaming enthusiasts who happen to have limitless pools of disposable income, so, clearly I’m not the target audience for this kind of thing.

Regardless, it’ll be out soon, just a couple of months. So that’s pretty cool.
