Mario Tennis Open has official trailer and release date
Mario Tennis Open is the newest first party title in the 3DS arsenal. It is a game where speed meets strategy and players leave it all on the court. Ok, it’s just Mario Tennis on 3DS, but that still sounds like a great to me. The biggest new feature is the way you interact with friends. There is still the classic local play for up to 4 players (over WiFi), but now you can play online with your friends, or play an open match against a stranger (stranger danger).
There will be some form of online progression, including leaderboards, and various events. There will of course be implementation of new control schemes like using the touch-screen will supplement buttons for specific volleys and the gyroscope can be used to look around the court by tilting the 3DS. Intense rallies and Peach in a mini-skirt are all coming to the 3DS on May 20th. Enjoy the teaser.
May 20th? Not to far away, really. Oh noez...stranger danger...aaahhh...
I don't know why Nintendo can't make a tennis game with Mario as the referee & some generic characters as the playable ones like they did with the Game Boy game & Super Tennis for the SNES (which I don't think even had Mario in it). Who cares if you get to play as Mario. It's the gameplay & controls that are important & make it a fun game. They don't have to plaster Mario's face over it to be good or for it to have good sales as those games I referred to proved in the past.
The ball curving will make it really intense.
Looks pretty sweet. I love the Mario Tennis games.
This looks crazy I can't wait.
FINALLY!! lol I freakin' love these games. Also, I kind of get competitive with these games
64 and Power Tennis were both awesome, so I'm definitely getting this one! :)
The absence of Mario Golf saddens me. Usually, Mario Tennis and Golf get announced together.
I usually a console type of person when it comes to 4 player games, but I love the Mario Tennis games. I'll keep an eye on this one.
Power Tennis for the Game Cube was the best one.
As long as Waluigi is in it, we'll be fine.
I loved Mario Tennis on the N64 and Gamecube, so I'm really looking forward to this one. :)
