Nintendo Launches Mario Tennis Open for Nintendo 3DS

Posted on May 22, 2012

Nintendo has announced Mario Tennis Open for the Nintendo 3DS. In the game, players can take on the role of fan-favorite characters such as Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser, or play as their own personalized Mii character. New characters can also be unlocked. Players can play in single-player mode and play with others using an Internet connection.

The action in Mario Tennis Open can get fast and furious as players trade serves, volleys, drop shots and cross-court smashes. Unexpected twists arise when special Chance Areas appear on the court during match play, inviting players to run to those areas to execute supercharged return shots with intense spin or extra power. A variety of Special Games also let players practice their swings and explore new challenges. For example, the included Super Mario Tennis game asks players to complete familiar levels from the classic Super Mario Bros. game by using their tennis swing to stomp Goombas and Koopas.
