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.
