Mario Party Superstars has leaked online nearly a week ahead of its release

maxresdefault.jpg

If you can't wait another five days to get together for a classic Mario Party, then you might want to know that the upcoming Mario Party Superstars, which is a collection of boards and minigames from the classic Nintendo 64 and GameCube titles, has leaked online ahead of its October 29th release date. There is at least an NSP copy of the game floating around on the internet, and the Yuzu emulator can play it to some extent, though there are reports that not all the boards are working. The leaked file clocks in at 2.7GB.

This is another in a long line of major Nintendo leaks this year. Earlier this month, Metroid Dread was leaked four days before its release, and in July The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD leaked two days early.

They asked how leaking could potentially ruin someone else's fun so I described a situation where that occurred. I agree that Mario Party leaking a week in advance is in no way as egregious as a story-heavy game like KH3 leaking 6 weeks in advance.
This is what i meant to say until.... one kid misheard that and look he is nowhere to be found and left all of us here discussing about nonsense what happened with people while they were in lockdown.... I just don't get it

The way you say it isn't maybe the right way, But i see your point. ether way there was no need for this.... Its nobody's fault. So enjoy you game (Btw last thing: I WASN'T ugghhh Godamnit Never mind. I was talking about Spoilers -_- Spoilers is that the right way of saying it.) (Hmmpff Autistic Humans.....) :D:):D
Thank you for the level headed response. I also see your point, but interested people don't rush to videos.

For example, I bought Oblivion way past its release date, with ample videos existing and played the game not knowing a thing about it. After completing it on my own terms, I read about it for a bit, and enjoyed the game differently. Still one of the best experiences I had, ever.

Don't overstress the leakage of games. Those who get it spoiled actively go and get the info because they weren't invested in the game in the first place.

indeed. I never watch videos of games I intend to play unless it's a review, a spoiler free review, which most are aside from the general theme of the game or something. I don't use walkthroughs either, even if I miss stuff, but I don't like missing stuff I know of like if I've gone through the game before (i.e. Final Fantasy X). it gives me reason to play through the game again.

Its my fault?? THAT I GOT MESSAGE BOMBED about a game that got leaked that didn't got released yet while watching a video about a Gameboy modder. That is the most stupid thing i every heard in my entire life. So what you saying is, that i can't go on youtube for like 1 month, a week or 2 weeks, because a leaker leaked a game??? please stfu already

Yes its your fault. You have to type in the leaked game if you want to see it and once again that's your choice.

Many games get leaked and I don't look because I don't want to ruin my experience

Why are leaks news?
If you want to get technical then leaks have been news for longer than we have consistently covered homebrew (late GBA/late-early DS era) and general gaming news (later still). Releases, which by extension means leaks, used to be the portal mainstay along with flash cart updates, reviews and trainers.

So the digital version is the one that was leaked here? This will probably make Nintendo do something about it..

no, I think it's the retail version again. I checked in backup manager to rename the game, and it always says if it's been converted. the nsp I downloaded said the source was an xci as I always put them in a separate folder if they're converted or a genuine nsp.

afaik, a digital version leak may be impossible, since you can only preload the game. I think the ticket is downloaded on release day, which is why I download preloaded games to my main switch, then only download the game to my other switches once the game is playable. otherwise, I might have to download the ticket, which happens automatically when the game is selected, as long as the release date is here or passed.

This reminds me of the time that amazon couldn't work out why they were selling so many wii motion plus adapters when there were no games out & people were trying to play the japanese version of wii sports resort.

Meanwhile everyone else got to play it 6 months later.

Luck-based garbage, no thank you.
Please leak Twilight Princess HD port next time; thanks in advance!
And you've never ever played a game that has a big part of it be luck based? You ever play a board game? You ever play... Basically any game? Does RNG not exist?

I could get the leaked 1, but nah I'll buy it from work, my OLED switch needs some games anyway
I'm all digital, so I need another 1TB micro sd to download my games to my oled, but I probably won't be able to for a couple months. I'm dangerously low on cash at the moment. I do plan to make the oled my primary, main switch at that time. my animal crossing one is my main atm.

Oof another 1TB SD, is your other switch hacked? Atleast we have the advantage of transferring our saves aslong we make backups with checkpoint. Thank goodness for that b/c the cloud storage doesn't support all games

Not really into board games, honestly, and as for RNG in other games, I try to minimise it the best I can - if a item drop is too rare in a singleplayer game, I hack it in if I can. Pokémon? I use PKHeX to remove the RNG for IVs and Ability and stuff.

I hate relying on luck; it's not fun at all.
