Super Mario Party unused board and DLC traces discovered

Super Mario Party released last year, and the game sold well, but no post-launch DLC was released. In fact, since its October 2018 release, Nintendo has not done much with the game.

Interesting find

Dataminers have now gone through the game’s coding, and have discovered some interesting things. The game’s code contains things such as “Core_GetStreamingInstallDLCStatus”, “SeasonPass” and “DLC1”, indicating that Nintendo had planned a Season Pass and DLC at some point in the game’s development.

There was also an unused board discovered, which would’ve been city-themed.
