A new poll may have hinted at the existence of an unannounced Mario Party Superstars DLC.
A survey spotted by Reddit user VideoPanda7113 asks the following question: “Which pack of downloadable content are you most likely to buy next?”
The poll then lists Hot Wheels Unleashed, Mario Kart 8 DLC, Animal Crossing New Horizon: Happy Home Paradise, or none of the above.
All of the games listed except Mario Party Superstars have DLC, hinting that DLC may be coming, or at some point DLC was planned for a collection of party games.
While it’s entirely possible that this poll was done by a third party who didn’t know about the lack of DLC in Mario Party Superstars, it’s still interesting that this is the only game included without it.
BUT datamining in October pointed to several additional boards that were included in the game, potentially hinting at a future DLC that was planned to be included.
Mario Party Superstars has brought together many boards from across the series, so there’s plenty to choose from for future content.

While nothing from this database has been fully deciphered, including which cards or mini-games these entries represent, it is likely that they would have been more of the “fan favorites” that make up the Mario Party Superstars boards and mini-games.
Other recent Mario spin-offs such as Mario Golf received post-release content including new characters. The wildly successful Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will add over 40 tracks over the next two years as part of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass.. The first wave will release on March 18, 2022 and will cost $24.99 / £24.99.
