by Rainier on April 5, 2012 @ 6:37 a.m. PDT

In Mario Tennis Open you can use basic button controls like previous titles in the series, but with the addition of gyro sensor and Touch Screen controls, you can enjoy tactical tennis with greater depth than ever before.

Play singles or go multiplayer with up to four people in a range of different modes. You can play with friends both locally and online, or search for other players online in your region to take to the court against. Serve, volley and smash your way up the leaderboard and see if you have what it takes to reach the top of the circuit. If you have friends nearby, you can even play a multiplayer match with just one copy of the game through Nintendo 3DS Download Play!

Choose from a variety of your favourite Nintendo characters or use your Mii character for a personalised tennis experience like none before. You can also customise your player of choice by winning coins and unlocking items from the in-game shop.

Mario Tennis Open utilises StreetPass in new and exciting ways. Play a game against other players you meet in the street without even lifting a finger and see if you haul in some coins as a reward. It's a whole new ball game!

The Special Games mode in Mario Tennis Open lets players hone their tennis skills while enjoying tennis games with a Mario twist. Players can check out games such as Super Mario Tennis, which puts a classic Super Mario Bros. twist on tennis drilling. As they play through familiar game levels, they can use their tennis swing to stomp Goombas, and Koopas along the way.

People can play as their favourite characters from the Mushroom Kingdom or even compete as their Mii characters. They can also customise their Mii characters with Mushroom Kingdom-themed tennis gear, which not only enhances players’ appearances but also can boost their stats. The wide selection of available gear includes Bowser's favourite racket, a Bullet Bill outfit and Peach's tennis shoes.

In addition to a singles tennis match mode, another mode in the game lets up to four players compete online in multiplayer doubles matches. Players can also compete online for leaderboard standings in the Open Match mode.

Whether playing with other 3DS owners in the same room or against distant competitors using a wireless broadband internet connection, players can cooperate to take on a common opponent or stay competitive and try to claim the glory for themselves. Players can opt to use intuitive touch-screen controls or increase their strategic options with traditional button controls. They can also switch seamlessly to the 3DS system's built-in motion controls.

Key Features:

  • Choose from a variety of control options: traditional buttons, Touch Screen controls or new gyro sensor controls!
  • Play online against players in your region or set up a group with your friends
  • Play locally with just one Mario Tennis Open Game Card
  • Enjoy virtual play via StreetPass and use any coins you win to upgrade your player!
