    With the rise of online gaming, couch multiplayer has seemingly become a thing of the past.

    It looks like Nintendo want to address this, which could be why the Japanese gaming giant is set to launch two of its original Mario Party games on Switch this November 2nd.

    Subscribers to the Switch Online+Expansion Pack service will get their hands on Mario Party and Mario Party 2. The two titles bring together dozens of minigames for up to four players.

    Subscribers will also receive Wave 3 of the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe booster sources ,giving you eight new racecourses to zoom around on with Switch, including fan favourite Merry Mountain from Mario Kart Tour.
