If you had told me that an actual Mario Party 8 (and beyond) was going to happen back then, I would have laughed it off, saying that Mario Party would probably get too stale around that point and they'd probably drop it. But... here we are today, where we've gotten up to Mario Party 10! (As of this commentary) When I had Mario make mention about the possible idea of a Mario Party 8, it was meant to be a joke that I didn't expect to actually happen. When I learned that it actually DID happen, my jaw dropped.
To this day, Mario Party is still going. And hey, if the Power Rangers can suddenly make a return with a recent movie, quite frankly, I think anything is possible these days.
