The Mario Tennis series has been around for a while, and has been on nearly every major Nintendo console since its beginning in 1995. In point of fact, we reviewed the last Mario Tennis game for the 3DS over here. Tennis in the Mushroom Kingdom isn’t simply tennis, naturally, so I grabbed my tennis racket and headed for the courts to see what the new Mario Tennis is serving up. Aside from tennis balls, of course.
Sports video games are a very popular genre, and anything that features the great mascot of gaming himself—Mario—is bound to triple anything’s popularity. So surely combining the two would make for unstoppable games, right? I see whether putting Mario and “tennis” together works out as well as we’d hope.
