Nintendo has just announced that it is bringing the Mario Sports franchise to the 3DS in the form of Mario Tennis Open. Mario Tennis Open is said to have a “special games” mode which lets players improve their tennis skills while still enjoying the Marioness of Mario Tennis. Fan favorite levels will be available for long time fans of the game, and as you make your way through these levels, you can hit Goombas and Koopas with your tennis racket.
As with all other Mario Sports games you can play as all of your favorite Mario characters, as well as your Mii. To help your Mii fit in you can customize him/her with special Mushroom-Kingdom tennis gear, which makes you look cool as well as a better player. If singles matches bore you, you can play with up to three other players online, fighting for leaderboard spots. If you want to stay traditional you can use the buttons or you can switch to the brand new motion controls.
Mario Tennis Open will be available on the Nintendo 3DS on May 22nd.
