|Nintendo World Report||8.5/10|
The game received generally positive reviews, mostly attributed to the presentation, the selection of games available, the large focus on single player content, online features, and matchmaking. The AI for the game was also praised as surprisingly tough. Ben Kuchera of Polygon praised the game selection in a simple package and the tutorials. Christian Donlan of Eurogamer praised the presentation, polish, and atmosphere. Chris Scullion of Nintendo Life commended the online matchmaking's attempt to not keep players waiting by cuing other players in on what games they selected. Common complaints included a lack of 3-to-4 player multiplayer game options, omissions of certain games, obnoxious dialogue and voice acting, and a lack of support for all Nintendo Switch play styles.
As of the end of March 2022, the game sold 4.22 million units worldwide.
- Some of the minigames, such as Toy Boxing, are similar to some of the tabletop games in Wii Party U.
- Chinese Checkers is different then the actual game, it uses 6 marbles instead of 10, and it's only 3 players instead of 6.
- While given a family-friendly rating in most countries, the game was given an "18" rating in South Korea because of the game's simulated casino-style gambling elements. South Korea has laws prohibiting casino gambling for anyone under 18.
- It similarly received an "M" rating in Australia, which means it is not recommended for children under 15, but it is not legally restricted.
