Are you a parent that doesn’t feel you have enough time to spend with your kids? You’re not alone. Working parents tell their children they are too busy to play with them an average of eight times a week — that’s more than once a day — according to a recent survey conducted by Wakefield Research for Nintendo.*
Meredith Sinclair, a lifestyle expert in play and family time, knows that quality family time is becoming much more limited. To help families come together and play something they all will enjoy, she recommends the new Mario Party Star Rush game from Nintendo.
Here are some of her reasons why Mario Party Star Rush is great for all families this winter season.
1. No more arguing over whose turn is next!
According to the survey, 31 percent of parents say their kids argue about whose turn is next when playing games. In Mario Party Star Rush, up to four players play at the exact same time! No more waiting your turn!
2. You only need one version of the game to play together!
Do you have a family of four? All of you can play together with only one game card if you all have Nintendo 3DS systems just by downloading the Mario Party Star Rush – Party Guest Edition software in Nintendo eShop – it’s super easy and it’s free to download!
3. Compete and cooperate at the same time!
Competing to see who can win each round is always fun, but Mario Party Star Rush also offers many opportunities to cooperate. Teamwork always wins out!
4. People of all ages and game experiences can play!
Mario Party Star Rush is easy to pick up and play. The Toad Scramble mode in the game serves as great introduction to the fun gameplay, ensuring that any and all players can participate!
5. Tapping amiibo adds to the fun!
Compatible amiibo figures can be tapped while playing Mario Party Star Rush to add fun new features.
6. Short and sweet mini-games!
While Mario Party Star Rush can be played in long sessions, it’s also built for quick matches, making it great during the hustle and bustle of the winter season.
7. No more save spots!
Has your child ever been late for dinner because they were playing a video game and had to wait to “get to the next save spot”? This won’t be a problem with Mario Party Star Rush since the Nintendo 3DS system can be closed at any time, instantly pausing the action to pick up later.
8. Classic Nintendo!
With recognizable names like Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi, Mario Party Star Rush is full of some of the most lovable video game characters of all time. Everyone has a favorite character.
Game, systems and amiibo figures sold separately.
