"In Mario Party 8, a hyperactive emcee has invited Mario, Peach and the rest of the crew to his carnival, a perfect setting for the dynamic spectacle of the Wii game play. Mario Party 8 keeps the surprises coming with minigames that draw upon the Wii Remote's motion, pointing and button control in a variety of ways. Players always know how to jump into the action by watching an animated tutorial that shows how to use the Wii Remote."
Gather your friends and Wiimotes to engage in dozens mini-games and experience the gameplay of strategy and board game genres. Mario Party 8 features a host of game modes, 14 classic characters, and six new party boards.
The game takes full use of the Wii motion-sensing ability whether it is puching, racing, shooting, drag-and-dropping, or transforming the characters.
