Features

NEW PLAY CONTROL! Mario Power Tennis allows player to play as their favourite character from the Mario world, such as Mario, Bowser or Princess Peach and unleash some Power Shots on the tennis court –using the Wii Remote. The NEW PLAY CONTROL! Mario Power Tennis, sports different replay camera options and a two-player split screen as well as the ability to use the Wii Remote to play a wide range of different shots, from overhand strikes to backhands and the Power Shots. The game also offers levels of control types which increase in difficulty to suit players of all levels. The game also enables gamers to play on a range of courts as well as Gimmick courts. These feature elements that influence how the match will be played, such as the ghosts in the Luigi's Mansion court, which trip gamers up by placing banana peels under one’s feet. The central mode of the game is Tournament Mode, which is split between matches on regular surfaces and matches on Gimmick courts, and features a standard ladder-style advancement system. Winning tournaments can unlock new characters, new courts, and new gameplay styles for the Exhibition Mode. The game also features a series of tennis-themed mini-games like “Artist on the Court” which lobs special paintballs at gamers and challenges players to knock them onto the appropriate areas of an uncoloured picture that's sitting where the net would usually be. There is also “Terror Tennis” where players keep a bunch of ghosts under control by hitting balls at any of them that start moving around. Players can unlock more mini-games, although they will initially start with five first. The game also features single player mode that enables players to choose their opponent and ability, the court used and the number of games and sets required to win the match, whilst singles or doubles mode with friends will see players pitting serving skills against them in a split screen affair.
