Mario Party, just like every other party game series out there, has some excellent minigames. It also has some absolute stinkers.

It’s hard to avoid, like watching a sketch show - some will land, and some simply won’t. Not even Mario himself can avoid this, with Nintendo’s flagship party series (despite Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival’s best efforts) turning out some pure duds in the minigame department.

And as the new game in the series is gearing up to compile the best of the best, one notorious minigame has filtered through the cracks and is threatening to injure its players once again. Thankfully, Nintendo is coming prepared this time around.

Nintendo Issues Injury Warning For Mario Party MiniGame

The lethal and hand-shredding Tug o' War minigame from the original Mario Party on the N64 is returning for the upcoming Mario Party Superstars. The title is a new take on the classic that compiles the best minigames from the series’ history.

Many N64 players will remember the incredible damage it did to their palms, as their technique would be to place their palms on the joystick and slam it back and forth. With some pretty painful results.

The game, instead of changing the controls, has opted to leave the controls the same. It now offers a warning to players not to repeat the painful tactic from their childhoods.

"To avoid irritation to your skin and/or damage the control stick, do not rotate it with the palm of your hand", it reads. Cheers, Nintendo, we’re sure fans will be sticking to your advice.

What Other Minigames Are Coming To Mario Party Superstars?

Along with Tug o' War, Mario Party Superstars is coming packed with 99 classic minigames, including some absolute N64 classics. The game is coming with the likes of Bombs Away from Mario Party, Honeycomb Havoc and Bumper Balloon Cars from Mario Party 2, as well as some more modern additions to the franchise.

The recent additions feature the likes of Mario Party 9’s Tackle Takedown and Shell Soccer, as well as Mario Party 10’s Skewer Scurry and Rapid River Race.

The upcoming game looks to be a must-have for fans of the franchise - and we’re excited (if that’s the right word) to decimate our palms and controllers all over again.
