First details of the latest Mario Sports game shows some oversize tennis!
Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash has just been announced for the Wii U console, set to come out during the holiday 2015 period in North America. The game is the latest entry in a line of Mario Tennis games that span all the way back to the Nintendo 64, and was represented at Nintendo's Digital Event with the premiere of a gameplay trailer.
Both singles and doubles modes are apparent from footage released thus far, and Nintendo also made sure to show off power-ups that players can deploy on the court. One of these power-ups was a Mega Mushroom that, in typical Mario fashion, turned an on-the-court character giant-sized, presumably with extra reach and power. Smaller characters appeared at a disadvantage to these large players, and would have to leap into the air to hit back the tennis ball.
