So Nintendo just put out this preview of a new mode in the new Mario Party.
The mode itself seems fine, if maybe not what I would think fans of this hell series would want, but it does show footage of Goomba being a playable character holding things. When I saw the thumbnail I assumed Goombas would hold things in their mouths, ala the Chain Chomp in Mario Tennis Aces, but the video quickly reveals that the Goomba just has the paddle, and later a candle stick, just sort of float in front of him. Adding to the mystery, the mini-game at 7:20 has the Goomba holding a boomerang in his mouth like I expected.
So I ask you, Giant Bomb. Have Goombas been hiding their psychokinetic powers all this time, acting like they were helpless in the face of Mario and Bowser's limbs and opposable thumbs and just biding their time waiting for a chance to rise up? Do they have invisible hands? Why do they still balance things on their head and hold things in their mouths? Am I high? The premier video game wiki of the internet needs to know.
