Mario Party 4 is a video game released for the Nintendo GameCube, and the first Mario Party game to be released on the GameCube itself. It is the last Mario Party game until Mario Party 10 to have Donkey Kong as a playable character. The game is essentially the same game as previous installments in terms of gameplay, though features some major updates, including three new nonplayable characters - Toad, Boo, and Koopa Kid (called Mini Bowser in European areas). Unlike Mario Party 3, Princess Daisy and Waluigi are now playable in story mode.



In general, the Mario Party series as a whole is left as the lowest of all the Mario series.


There are six boards in this game, and each is hosted by a different character. They are: Toad's Midway Madness, Shy Guy's Jungle Jam, Boo's Haunted Bash, Goomba's Greedy Gala, Koopa's Seaside Soiree, and Bowser's Gnarly Party.
