What the hell, lol. Games don’t usually get major new portions added on to them two or three years after release.

Still a wonderful addition though, and props to Nintendo for going back to an old game and doing this. For some without real life gaming friends, this just made this game viable to them.
 
Without voicechat it's pointless. How can I curse at people when they steal a star from me?

oh nevermind, ittadakimasu Nintendo-chan

This was historical. It should have been done during the GameCube or Wii era but Nintendo was slacking big time

Kind of a gift and a curse because the inline was faulty with Super Mario Party and it pushed me to use Discord to find games (signed up strictly thanks to this announcement) during the time of Mario Party having online

If Nintendo and NDcube ever make an app or website that tracks all your stats, wins and losses that would be incredible. Records all games played sort of thing. Hopefully one day
