Two and a half years later, Nintendo has added new online modes to Super Mario Party
Super Mario Party launched for Nintendo Switch on October 5th, 2018. Keep that in mind when you read this: Nintendo has just released—like, just released—an update for Super Mario Party that makes the Mario Party and Partner Party modes playable online.
Yes, it is April 27th, 2021. Again, Super Mario Party launched on October 5th, 2018. That’s a two-and-a-half-year gap. But, hey: better late than never.
The update makes it so that you can either join or host a public online game for both the Mario Party and Partner Party modes, or you can create a password-protected private match for you and your friends and family. Of course, anyone who wants to play Super Mario Party online will need to have a Switch Online subscription.
