Nintendo of America has announced exactly when eager gamers can get their hands on Mario Party Island Tour for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS. Consumers in North America will be able to purchase Nintendo’s latest Mario Party game on November 22nd. European gamers will be able to get the game sometime this November.
What do you guys think of the new name? I find it to be an interesting name and nice to see them kind of change it up from just being numbered or named after the system. And I do like the release date. Will be picking it up.

Not sure what to think about the Mario Party series at this point. It was awesome playing with friends/family as a kid but now that I'm older I don't think it can hold my interest any longer. I may pick it up for nostalgic purposes, but the lack of online play really kills it for me.

Woops, I actually meant handheld Mario Party games Kokoro. I have owned basically every console version.
Out of curiosity, what is the Nintendo 2DS? I've seen that mentioned in Statuses all over Neo, and I thought it was just a joke/reference of the original Nintendo DS.
It's a new announcement they made. Basically it's a 3DS which doesn't have 3D, but still plays the games. It's meant to be a cheaper option, and the 3D is usually turned off for most people anyway, so it seems like a good idea. Problem is, it's really ugly, it's too big for putting in your pocket, and it doesn't fold. Because of these issues, everyone on the Internet is hating on it. Although I personally don't see why, since it was designed as an alternative, not a replacement.
