Nintendo Treehouse Live E3 2016: Day 2 — Mario Party: Star Rush

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Koopa down! Koopa down!

The fine folks at Nintendo Treehouse Live are now showing us Mario Party: Star Rush, a new Mario Party game for the 3DS! It's really the first sign of the plumber we've seen at E3.

I'm Nintendork 13 13, Rawk is Rawk, Vortex is breezinabout. Kamek shows up as Ultralink1 at the beginning of the log, but he mysteriously disappears...

...Read the log to find out where he went!

Nintendork 13 13 2:56 pm
    (I have no hopes for Party 3DS)

 ultralink1 2:56 pm
    I still want to try it

 Nintendork 13 13 2:56 pm
    (...isn't there already a Party 3DS?)

 ultralink1 2:56 pm
    i'm pretty sure there is

 RawkHawk2010 2:56 pm
    I remember a few E3s ago, you were so disgusted with the franchise that I couldn't even get you to watch the trailer for Mario Party 10.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:56 pm
    I think I was justified with that.

 RawkHawk2010 3:02 pm
    what do we think about crash bandicoot being back

 Nintendork 13 13 3:02 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:02 pm
    where is kamek

 Nintendork 13 13 3:03 pm
    Now with Ed.
    Mari0 Party: Star Rush.
    The main mode is called Toad Scramble

 RawkHawk2010 3:03 pm
    This is the main mode?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:03 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:03 pm
    so 3:03 pm
    Generic Toads infectin' mah Mario Party. ">:o"

 RawkHawk2010 3:03 pm
    Do you have to buy amiibos to unlock actual characters?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:03 pm
    Loading screen features Mari0 harassing non-existantly-animated Koopa shells.
    There are bosses. Mega Goomba stole a star.
    Red Toad is named Donald.

 RawkHawk2010 3:04 pm
    print screen

Mario Party Star Rush generic Toads red blue yellow green
As you wish. Hi Donald!

 Nintendork 13 13 3:04 pm
    Treehousers don't know which generic Toad is which Treehouser.

 RawkHawk2010 3:04 pm
    "I'm gonna hold back my Toad Love."

 Nintendork 13 13 3:05 pm
    "Simultaneous play"
    "It's always your turn."

 RawkHawk2010 3:05 pm
    "You're always doing something fun. That's new to the series."

 Nintendork 13 13 3:05 pm
    Game: Other Players are still scrambling

 RawkHawk2010 3:05 pm
    and he's dancing

 Nintendork 13 13 3:05 pm
    "Oh, phew! Some allies have arrived!"
    You recruit allies by going to their space. 3:06 pm
    Mario looks like he's put on weight.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:06 pm
    Is this like MP3's Duel Mode?

 RawkHawk2010 3:06 pm
    i have no idea what's happening

 Nintendork 13 13 3:06 pm
    They don't either.
    The Mega Goomba is asleep in the minigame.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:07 pm
    Though he was wide awake on the map.
    "You're never waiting to have fun in this game."

 RawkHawk2010 3:07 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:07 pm
    Toads are stealing Mega Goomba's apples.

 RawkHawk2010 3:07 pm
    She's bashing the Mario Party's past pretty hard.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:07 pm
    The little Goombas are unsuccessfully trying to stop the Toads.
    Mega Goomba awake and mad.

Mario Party Star Rush Mega Goomba boss minigame
Mega Goomba fights back.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:09 pm
    I don't get it.

 RawkHawk2010 3:09 pm
    me neither 3:09 pm
    This looks dumb.

 RawkHawk2010 3:09 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:09 pm
    Reminds me of Animal Crossing amiibo Festival.
    And no one liked that.

 RawkHawk2010 3:09 pm
    are there mini-games not involving these boss dudes?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:09 pm
    They never showed the ally characters.
    Anyway, King Bob-Omb is here.
    "There's multiple bosses on one board/"
    There's items.

 RawkHawk2010 3:10 pm
    "Nothing's going on."
    "I'm scared."
    The players are more confused than we are.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:10 pm
    Picked up Peach.
    Peach does something with flower buds.
    What flower buds?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:11 pm
    "Play as Peach in minigames"
    Boss time.
    Waluigi's ability has 50% chance of getting a high number roll, and 50% chance of having coins stolen from you.

 RawkHawk2010 3:11 pm
    this looks like something from Power Tennis

 Nintendork 13 13 3:12 pm
    They're attacking King Bob-Omb with cannons.

 RawkHawk2010 3:12 pm
    The Mecha Bowser mini-game.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:12 pm
    King Bob-Omb is sort of inviting them to attack. But then he gets angry.
    His attack is giving the Toads more bombs to attack him with. 3:12 pm
    "This mini-game is morbid"

 RawkHawk2010 3:12 pm
    This is the same exact thing as the last mini-game except reversed.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:12 pm
    He exploded.

 RawkHawk2010 3:13 pm
    You're giving the boss macguffins instead of stealing them.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:13 pm
    King Boo is now present.

 RawkHawk2010 3:13 pm
    is this why it's called Star Rush?
    Because it's a Boss Rush?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:13 pm
    Daisy does the same thing as Peach.

 RawkHawk2010 3:14 pm
    "take chances, for the audience."
    Sounds like us.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:15 pm
    They're selecting a minigame to play.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:15 pm
    So there are non-boss games.

 RawkHawk2010 3:15 pm
    so it's complete luck

 Nintendork 13 13 3:15 pm
    This is a prisoner's dilemma game.

 RawkHawk2010 3:15 pm
    Like that Chain Chomp mini-game from MP3.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:15 pm
    Featuring cookie plates.

 RawkHawk2010 3:15 pm
    With the cake.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:16 pm
    Not at all.
    It's psychology.
    It's not determined by RNG.
    But by other players.

 RawkHawk2010 3:16 pm
    Still dumb.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:17 pm
    They made a Yoshi's Cookie joke.

Mario Party Star Rush Yoshi cookie eating plates minigame results screen
If you haven't played Yoshi's Cookie, you're not missing anything.

 RawkHawk2010 3:17 pm
    btw the loading screens are koopa shells

 Nintendork 13 13 3:17 pm
    I know.
    A-Aren't you reading my stuff?
    I said they're non-existently animated.
    And Mari0 jumps on them.
    Luig1's special ability is stomping on Goombas in grass?
    So the collecting allies thing is kinda like Smash Tour in Super Smash Bros. For Wii U.
    I think.

 RawkHawk2010 3:19 pm
    did vortex fall asleep?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:19 pm
    Did Kamek?
    He said he was interested in this crap. 3:19 pm
    I have to admit, I'm nodding off here.

 RawkHawk2010 3:19 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:19 pm
    Oh there's Donkey Kong.

 RawkHawk2010 3:19 pm
    can't blame you
    oh hey
    his first E3 appearance

 Nintendork 13 13 3:19 pm
    Hey, King Koopa hasn't shown up at all.

 RawkHawk2010 3:20 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:21 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:21 pm
    are there Acorn Goombas?
    Like the Acorn People in Conker's Pocket Tales?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:21 pm
    Oh, uh, this is a Goombrat-avoiding acorn-basket-running minigame.
    I dunno.
    "Every moment, everyone is doing something. We're moving, we're planning, we're mashing A..."

 RawkHawk2010 3:22 pm
    is that why they don't like breaks between the streams?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:22 pm
    Blue is gonna get to DK.
    Donkey Kong's ability: Breaks B--..

 RawkHawk2010 3:22 pm
    Well, Donald probably likes it.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:22 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:22 pm
    what voice

 Nintendork 13 13 3:22 pm
    DK's. 3:23 pm
    That's the campest I've ever heard DK sound.

 RawkHawk2010 3:23 pm
    I need to hear it again.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:23 pm
    Well, he's in this King Boo boss fight. 3:23 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:24 pm
    "Oh, Donkey Kong's so sad about it."
    "That's probably a good place to end it."

 RawkHawk2010 3:25 pm
    lol kamek
    Maybe they'll talk about him. 3:25 pm
    So THAT'S where he went!

 Nintendork 13 13 3:25 pm

Mario Party Star Rush Kamek boss Magikoopa

 RawkHawk2010 3:25 pm
    Poor poor Kamek.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:26 pm
    They quit once Kamek comes on.
    ...Does he know they're not coming back to him?
    Yokai Watch 2 up next.

 RawkHawk2010 3:27 pm
    brb commode

 Nintendork 13 13 3:27 pm
    In the break, we'll try to get Kamek out of the 3DS.

Will KoopaTV get Kamek back, or will he forever be trapped in the demo 3DS's sleep mode? Stay tuned!

Kamek would later appear at E3 2018 in a Mario Party game.
