In Mario Tennis Open, Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom friends return to
the court for a flurry of intense tennis action, from engaging singles
and doubles matches to skill-building Special Games and online play.
Using the built-in wireless features of the Nintendo 3DS system, up to
four people can play together in local* or online** multiplayer modes
and exchange player information via StreetPass. Players can choose
between intuitive Touch Screen and gyro sensor controls or strategic
button-based gameplay that delivers an even deeper experience. Players
can also choose from a variety of playable characters or use their own
personalized Mii character as they serve, volley and smash their way up
As many as four players can connect online with their friends for
singles or doubles matches. Additionally, Open Match mode can
automatically pair players of comparable skill levels. Nintendo 3DS
owners who are near each other can also face off via a local wireless
connection, even if only one player has a Mario Tennis Open game card.
Strategy is key as players execute lobs and drop shots or unleash
powerful topspin to outlast their opponents in intense rallies. When
Chance Areas appear on the court during a match, players can run to
them to execute a supercharged Chance Shot. Intuitive Touch Screen
controls allow players to easily and skillfully perform different
swings. Players can also choose to use the motion controls of the
Nintendo 3DS system to precisely shoot to the left or the right in
order to ace their opponents.
Using the Nintendo 3DS system’s StreetPass feature, Mario Tennis Open
players can exchange and show off their customized Mii characters and
incorporate them into Special Games or competitive singles matches.
