After the success of Wii Party, you thought the Mario Party franchise was dead, right? Wrong! To be fair, so did we.

Yes, fresh off the success of Mario Party 8 a few years ago comes Mario Party 9! Announced at E³ 2011 (and by "announced," we mean "getting a logo shown at the very last minute, thereby devastating a good DKU showing/hearing of announcements"), all we know is that it has Mario and friends, and apparently there's a party of some sort. Hell, we don't even know whether Donkey Kong is in it yet, but we might as well prepare for the inevitable.
