Nintendo New York held a Mario Party Star Rush event on November 4. This event featured a photo op against the game’s backdrop, gameplay stations and a real-life ‘Acornucopia’ racing game for star-studded goods from a star-shaped candy and star-glasses. The Acornucopia was inspired by the same Mario Party: Star Rush mini game in which Mario and friends have to avoid Goombas in order to keep all of their acorns.
