Nintendo has finally released more information regarding its latest, zany party title, Mario Party 9. The vehicle that we've seen Mario and friends riding around in appears to play a big role in the game's gimmick. Each character will take turns being "Captain" of the vehicle, meaning they can control which path it will take and land on certain lucky spaces. There will also be "Captain Events" that will affect the pace of the game. Boards play different than in past games as well. Now, there is a definite beginning and end, and players must guide the vehicle through plenty of branching paths to reach the end where a Boss Battle lies for all players to take on. The only revealed boards right now are Toad's Road and Boo's Horror Castle. For more info, check out the game's info page at Nintendo.
