Originally released in 2000, Mario Party 3 serves as the third installment in the popular Mario Party series. Known for its engaging mix of board game mechanics and mini-games, this title allowed up to four players to compete against each other or computer-controlled characters.

Mario Party 3 features 70 new mini-games to the series and six boards to play on. The game also features a unique mechanic called “duel boards,” in which two players fight each other. Furthermore, it is the Mario Party game in which Daisy and Waluigi debut as playable characters.

You’ll need the Expansion Pack upgrade to the base online membership in order to play Mario Party 3 and other Nintendo 64 games on the Switch. This upgraded membership costs $49.99 per year for an individual membership. It costs $79.99 for a family plan of up to eight people.

The first two Mario Party games are already available to play on the N64 library of Nintendo Switch Online. Like those two, you’ll be able to connect with friends online or locally to compete against each other.

This game is the second-to-last addition to its N64 library (that we know about) based on what Nintendo announced last September. The final addition, 1080° Snowboarding, will probably arrive in November or December. You can see everything that has come to N64 over the past year right here. It is unknown if more N64 games will be added after this time.
