'Mario Power Tennis' (Wii) Gets Euro Release Date

The keys to winning a tennis match in the real world are fast footwork, consistency and a wicked backhand. Enter the realm of Mario Power Tennis, a remake of the original GameCube game, and the secret to winning includes Power Shots like Mario's Iron Hammer, Luigi's Squeaky Mallet and Peach's Super Peach Spin.

Thrills abound in the new Mario Power Tennis video game, launching today. Up to four players can compete on a single screen as they show off thunderous backhands or return soaring lobs. From Mario to Bowser, each character has unique offensive and defensive Power Shots that turn a friendly game of tennis into mania on the court.

Tennis purists can play a standard game without fancy trick moves, a feature that also lets novices learn the basics before moving on to more advanced action. A series of mini-games and special modes let players hone their tennis skills while competing in a variety of crazy challenges.

Part of Nintendo's New Play Control! brand (remaking old Gamecube games with added Wiimote controls), Mario Power Tennis is currently scheduled for release in Europe on March 6, 2009.
