Mario Party Superstars Gets First Update of 2022, Patch Notes Released

Mario Party Superstars released on Nintendo Switch back in October. The game got a day one patch, but has received nothing since. That's pretty atypical these days, but a new update is now live, bringing the game up to version 1.1.1. Sadly, there isn't anything too significant in this update, but it does include a number of bug fixes for a handful of minigames, as well as some improvements for the online features. Hopefully these changes will make for a more enjoyable experience for players! Full patch notes from Nintendo's official website can be found below:

Ver 1.1.1 (Released March 22, 2022)

  • Online
    • Fixed an issue in which the game cannot progress forward when viewing minigame rankings in the Data House.
    • Made changes to a game feature where a session is immediately ended when pressing the B button while in the Village Square after joining players via the Friend House. A message will now be displayed asking if you would like to end the session.
  • General
    • Fixed an issue in which the minigame does not end when playing Ice-Rink Risk, Dizzy Dancing, Catch You Letter, or Cheep Cheep Chase.
    • Fixed an issue in the Stick and Spin minigame in which the game's movement gets slower as the high score gets raised and the game forcibly ends.
    • Fixed other issues to improve the overall gameplay experience.
  • For those unfamiliar with Mario Party Superstars, the game features boards from the original Nintendo 64 entries, as well as minigames spanning the history of the series. For longtime Mario Party fans, the game has proven to be a welcome blast from the past, but fans have been hoping to see more classic content released as DLC. At this time, Nintendo has made no announcements about extra content for the title, but today's update shows that the company hasn't completely forgotten about the game.
