Mario Party had been a clear success on consoles, but after awhile, the developers at Hudsonsoft wanted to take the series and move it on to the Game Boy Advance, which had been a huge financial success at the time. The results were quite…different, to say the least. Anyway, Shroom City has been attacked by Bowser and he has taken all of the world’s minigames and “gaddgets.” It’s up to Mario and his three closest friends to help solve the troubles of Shroom City.

With all of the console Mario Parties being completed at this point, I knew that at some time I would need to take a trip to the handheld games, and after almost a year of no Mario Party action on the channel, I decided to give Mario Party Advance a try. Although it’s very different from the traditional Mario Party formula, even moreso than Mario Party 9, it does have its own charm and I wanted to share it with you guys.

Mario Party 3

Mario and his friends are having a nice relaxing day in front of Princess Peach’s Castle. During this down-time, a giant star crashes into the ground, claiming to be the Millenium Star. Being the competitive and playful characters they are, Mario and his friends decide to play Mario Party to determine who gets to own this marvelous star. Mario Party 3 is the third installment of the Mario Party series, featuring new items, new boards, new characters, lots of new mini-games, and even a new spin to the formula in the form of “Duel Maps;” 1 vs. 1 board maps requiring you to eliminate your opponent using classic Mario characters and enemies.

Although this is the 3rd installment of the Mario Party series, it is actually the earliest (in terms of date) available playlist of my Mario Party playthrough series. This is because I had to remove my original playthroughs of Mario Party 1 and Mario Party 2 due to the issues of copyright I had with those videos, and as a result, I redid them at a later date, after this project. This also happens to be the earliest playlist I have on my channel, which means I had a much different and inferior set-up compared to what I have now and in the other Mario Party playthroughs.

This playthrough gave birth to a lot of very special and amazing moments and I don’t regret a single minute of playing this game for you guys; even if I consider it having the worst production quality of all of my featured projects (at this time). If you want to see how things used to be on the SlimKirby channel, check out this project and embrace the nostalgia!
