The wild multiplayer action of the Nintendo GameCube hit, Mario Power
Tennis, returns with added Wii controls and widescreen presentation.
With Wii controls, players simply swing the Wii Remote controller to

open this classic game to new gamers and offers experienced gamers the

hit the Gimmick Courts for wild matches not possible in the real world.
