REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 19, 2007 – It’s been three years since Nintendo DS™ launched in the United States. According to the independent NPD Group, sales through October have topped 13.6 million in the United States alone. That’s reason enough to party. And who’s more qualified to host a nonstop Nintendo celebration than Mario™ himself? With today’s launch of Mario Party® DS from Nintendo, you can stop wondering where the party is, because the party is wherever you are. You’ve got a standing invitation to party with the whimsical plumber and his outrageous pals anywhere, anytime.

The latest installment in the wildly popular Mario Party game series introduces five new boards and more than 70 awesome minigames, playable for the first time ever on the super-portable Nintendo DS. It’s a great value, since up to four DS owners can compete via local wireless using only one game card.

“The wireless features of Mario Party DS let families enjoy game time together, whether they’re on the road or lounging in the living room,” says George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “Nintendo has the hottest products for the holidays and beyond, and we want to make sure all family members know we have something for them.”

Mario Party DS combines the easy-to-learn fun of classic board games, the innovative wireless features of Nintendo DS and the imaginative mayhem of the Mario universe. Up to four players of any age can use the stylus, touch-screen and built-in microphone to party their way through dozens of replayable minigames that feature classic characters and dozens of zany challenges. Whether twisting shapes, flipping burgers or battling for precious coins, everyone in the household will find something to love in this action-packed game.
