Mario and friends are throwing a party, and you're invited. It's their biggest bash yet, with seventy totally new Mini-Games and five brand, new adventure boards. You'll be the life of the party as you punch, pound and stampede right over your opponents in a multiplayer melee or go head-to-head in the new two-player duel mode. You can even unlock new characters in the one-player challenge. With so much fun and excitement, this is a bash you'll just have to crash!

Release Dates

August 11, 2000 Unveiled
December 7, 2000 Original Japanese version
May 7, 2001 U.S. version
November 16, 2001 PAL version

The game's official release date was revealed on March 1, 2001 to be May 7. It was also going to be the last official Mario Party title, but that was reconsidered before Mario Party 4 was in development.


This was the only Mario Party game to not have an official site from 2001-2002, as it would just redirect to the main Nintendo website.
