As with most Mario Party games, an emphasis will be put on the game's multiplayer aspect. A new element to the series is the use of the Download Play functionality of the Nintendo DS to allow four people to play wirelessly using only one game card. A scan of a Nintendo booklet also shows the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection logo on a page concerning Mario Party DS, hinting at some sort of online functionality.

New to the series is comic book-style cutscenes, according to new screenshots.

There will be a variety of mini-games throughout Mario Party DS.  Some involve trying to dodge soccer balls being kicked at you by a giant Goomba while others involve blowing out candle flames to try to win a race.

Mario Party DS begins with a peaceful day in the Mushroom Kingdom. However, King Bowser invites everyone to his castle. They accept the invite and go to the castle. There, Bowser shrinks Mario and friends to the size of chess pieces. Mario and friends must gather the power of the stars to restore themselves to normal size and defeat Bowser.

Much like Mario Party 8 before it, it will have a unique theme, this time a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids-like theme.
