Bowser Jr. (Playable Character)! [V1.1] - A Mod for Mario Party Superstars

Updates

Version 1.1 12d
  • BugFix Due to a 1.0.0 game file being used, it was possible Bowser Jr. may have crashed after each party-mode minigame for v1.1.0 game users. This is now fixed.
  • Optimization Another v1.0.0 game file has been updated, which may make Bowser Jr. more Wi-Fi safe. However, I cannot confirm this for myself yet.

Bowser Jr. is now playable!

After being demoted to host item minigames, Bowser Jr. is back in the party! Guide this cute koopa through boards and minigames and help him become the next Superstar!

This mod is a full-replacement mod. It features the Bowser Jr. model, new animations as well as Bowser Jr. animations imported from Super Mario Party, Bowser Jr. voice clips, custom icons, and three new Bowser Jr. stickers!

Instead of defaulting my mods to replace one particular character, I want players to have a more variety of options on who to replace. These currently include Mario, Daisy and Birdo. There will be more available later on with updates!

--- KNOWN BUGS / IMPROVEMENTS TO MAKE---

- Not all animations have been replaced yet, mostly for specific minigames. Some of these animations do not look very good right now, but they will slowly be improved with future updates. Bowser Jr. also holds specific objects the wrong way, and this is related to some animations not being updated yet.

- Bowser Jr. currently doesn't fit in the character portraits (for the character select screens and after-minigame results screen) very well. This will be improved later on.

- After Bowser Jr. receives an item, the camera focuses on his feet rather than his face.

- The game currently crashes on Piranha Pursuit when Bowser Jr. wins as the solo player.

- The game currently crashes when Bowser Jr. recieves and uses an Item Bag. (However this might be fixed now, please let me know if you still get this crash)

If there are any more bugs or oddities you find that haven't been listed, please let me know in the comments. As far as I know he doesn't crash on any minigames, but if he does for you, let me know and I'll investigate!

Hopefully you enjoy using this mod and thanks for downloading!
  • Very Nice!

    Played a full 20 turn game with Boswer Jr. and had minimal issues. Would just like to report though on the minigame "Cast Aways" once Bowser Jr. casts once it got stuck and would not allow him to cast again. Maybe an animation is missing?

    PS. - Is there a known way to fix the lighting issues with his player model on certain minigames? He comes off as almost pitch black in certain minigames with high levels of saturation.

    Yo this is awesome! I've been wondering if this would be possible. If I ever get my games back on my modded switch, totally gonna get this. The Super Mario Party roster is so much better than this game's. Any plans on trying to import any others or nah?
    Learning how to mod, slowly

    I played a round with him, and I gotta be honest, I think you should keep him being shorter in the portraits like on the character select screen. Personally I just find it hilarious that he's so short.

  • Tried him out and I'm impressed, he works really well!  He just needs the fixes you've already mentioned. Not the biggest Jr. fan myself but I'll put anything over Birdo-

    All your mods are perfect and awesome. However, only the left flag is used in the minigame. Can you solve this problem?

    the only mod idea i could think of as a good way to replace Birdo was Pauline, but that would require a lot of work. this is a MUCH better alternative. he really should have been playable. nice work!

    Been waiting for this mod for ages! I'm glad to see it come to life! Weird that eye looks big, ngl.

    BTW, I know you made custom UI, but if you wish to blend with the game's artstyle you could go with Super Mario Party's UI to make Jr. fit better with the cast. https://www.spriters-resource.com/nintendo_switch/supermarioparty/sheet/110020/

    Will be testing this tomorrow to check if its Wi-Fi safe. I'll edit the comment once tested.

    Edit: Can confirm that the mod is NOT Wi-Fi Safe!
    In some minigames where you interact with the players; like Mushroom Mix-Up, you can desync with the players, in other minigames which you don't; like Snow Whirled, you don't. So its Minigame dependent. I used the one over Birdo BTW, but I think it will be the same result no matter which one you replace.
