While you’re out grabbing those amazing little Amiibo why not pick up a copy of Mario Party Star Rush. Available now for $59.95 or $69.95 for the Australian/New Zealand exclusive bundle which includes: Mario Party Star Rush 3DS game,NFC Reader/Writer, and Yoshi Amiibo.

When in single player mode, if you tap your compatible Amiibo on the Nintendo 3DS or 3DSXL while playing you’ll get the joy of having your Amiibo as an ally. If this wasn’t enough you’ll also get a bunch of other handy little advantages and useful items.

Using a compatible Amiibo in Toad Scramble, solo players will experience having their character appear from the start as an Amiibo ally. This ally will have a rare item on hand to help boost your chances of winning.

So with many more bonuses to be discovered in Mario Party Star Rush, it’s time to join the party! The other characters in the Super Mario Ambiio collection are also compatible with this game.
