Nintendo has just published a new trailer showing the new Tennis mode of Mario Sport Superstars. The tennis mode in the game has been popular amongst fans in other games such as Mario Tennis: Ultra smash, it will play and behave the same in Mario Sport Superstars.
The European website of the game has provided the following information, specifying the tennis mode further.
Tennis, anyone? Take to the court and serve up thrilling end-to-end action in this classic racket sport. Expertly chain together lobs, drop shots and more at just the right time to keep your opponents on their toes.
Mix it up
In tennis, it’s all about timing, positioning and, more crucially, choosing the right shot for the job. Lob opponents who’re adopting a high line, or pepper deep-sitters with some power shots into the far corner, using the Circle Pad to aim. Keep the rally going for a chance to unleash a blazing Ultra Smash and really overwhelm the opposition!
Wield your racket like a pro and fend off all-comers to take top spot in the tournaments. Wow the crowd by performing acrobatic jump shots and showy chance shots, or, if you’d prefer, play in Simple mode for a more straightforward tennis experience where your speed, strategy and reactions become even more crucial!
Double the fun
Just like in the other sports, you can play solo or with others. Up to four can play via Local Play or online. Struggling to get the numbers? You can tap in a Mario Sports Superstars amiibo card (sold separately or as part of a software bundle), and have that character join as your very own Doubles partner, so there’s always someone to play with!
Mario Sport Superstars doesn’t stop here, it features many other sports you can explore. Golf, Soccer, Baseball and horse riding ( featured here ) are all sports you can play in the game. The game will also feature it’s own line of Amiibo cards that can be purchased for $4.99 similar to Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. If you don’t want to buy an Amiibo card pack, rest assured the game will come with 1 free card for a limited time after launch
The game will be released for Nintendo 3ds on March 24th. Watch the trailer bellow to see the Tennis mode in action!
