Super Mario Party, which launched in 2018 on the Nintendo Switch, got a new update today! The last update, which included data fixes, was launched back in 2019 but the next one that comes nearly 2 years later brings more content to the game. Version 1.1.0, which released today, adds the following new modes to the game via the free update:
  • Mario Party
  • Partner Party
  • Free Play (Minigames)

These new additions are however accessible online only through a subscription to the paid Nintendo Switch Online service. Irrespective of your in-game progress, playing online will make all of the 20 characters and all maps available while 70 of the total 80 minigames will be available to play. In addition, when playing online, play data won’t be saved.

If you haven't played Super Mario Party yet, you can check out our official review linked below where the game scored an 8.2/10.

Never heard of a "free" update because, usually when there's an update, you just...update.
In terms of paid subscriptions, it's only free when you pay...?

Help me get my point across...

They're making a point to let people that don't always quite understand these things, that it is a free update to the game, rather than a paid DLC addition. I've also seen the term "free update" probably literally thousands of times.

This garbage still lacks the ability to skip repeated tutorials and only has a handful of maps, doesn't it?

Eh, if you're into the luck-based, skill-less, rage-inducing Party series, just stick with the first few games - from what I hear, anyway.
the gamecube ones are the best they have lots of items to fuck over your friends with :lol:
