Latest entry in Nintendos party game series to come packaged with the new peripheral.
Amid the slew of new game announcements and release date changes announced by Nintendo this morning, it was revealed today that Mario Party 6 for the GameCube would make use of a proprietary microphone controller, officially named the "Nintendo GameCube Mic." Mario Party 6, scheduled for release on December 6, 2004, will come packaged with the controller at the standard price of $49.99.
Although Nintendo has not released any screenshots or even artwork for the game, it has released a few details. The entire cast of playable characters from Mario Party 5 will return, including newcomers Koopa Kid and Toad. A new day-and-night system will change the nature of the boards and even the gameplay of the minigames. And the gameplay has been speeded up, with less "downtime" between the board game and minigame sections.
