While the details are still sparse, it looks like Mario's next party might have some amusing toy support.

Amiibo support in Mario Party 10 could be a step above current support according to Shigeru Miyamoto in an appearance on the YouTube show Nerdy Nummies.

"We have a lot of different Amiibo that are out there, but with Mario Party 10, we have some fun things that we are doing with Amiibo in that game," Miyamoto said about the upcoming Wii U game.

As of now, all we know is that Mario Party 10 will support Amiibo when it comes out in 2015. Additionally, Yoshi's Woolly World, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, and more.

Check out the whole video below. Miyamoto (and Nintendo's Bill Trinen) show up at around the seven minute mark. In addition to taking a bite out of a sugary treat, Miyamoto also talks about Yoshi's Woolly World, Mario Maker, Star Fox, and more.

The question is will they be doing fun things with Mario Party 10 and the answer is no because they still think Mario Party 9 was a good idea.

Mario Party is one of the easiest Amiibo games.  Character Models for all the Amiibos opening them up to for use.  Similar character Customization as Smash.  Maybe unlock an Amiibo board that opens up a mashup of Non-Mario Universe settings and themes.

I haven't played it yet, but most people that played it said that Mario Party 9 was a good game.

The Board Game elements are what interest me in Mario Party and 9's boards are so dumbed down it's ridiculous. hop on the stupid car and hope you're in front when you pass the stupid mini stars, that's the extent of Mario Party 9's board game mechanics.

Why did I think something dirty when I read Nintendo was doing 'fun thing' with Amiibo?

Man, I'm such a manchild.  :(
