Mario Tennis Aces

Post by Valigarmander » Sun Jan 21, 2018 4:43 am

Apparently I was remiss in my duties as Mario mod by forgetting to make this thread earlier. There is a new Mario Tennis game coming out for the Switch.

Not a whole lot is known about it so far, except that it will feature the return of story mode, last seen in Power Tour over twelve years ago. It also has nice HD graphics, and Luigi looks fly as ****. It's coming out spring this year (or autumn if you're an Aussie).

I'm very excited for this game. It's toward the top of my list of Switch purchases, if I can make it happen. I need some Mario Tennis story mode in my life.

I somehow haven't played any of the previous games despite generally liking Mario sports, but one of my coworkers is pretty excited for it since the last one was apparently not great.

I'll probably pick it up. Can't say for sure that I'll like it, but I need another local MP Switch game besides MK8, and it seems promising.

My favorite thing about early Mario Tennis was grinding my Original Character Donut Steel on the Gameboy Color and then porting em over to the N64 version and wiping the floor with all of the actual Mario characters.

....Was that a thing you can do? I have vivid memories of doing this but maybe I am making them up somehow. Anyway, I never played as the actual characters because iirc the OCs were so stupidly overpowered. I spent HOURS on Gameboy Color Mario Tennis.

Hmmm. That's the kind of thing that'd make me skeptical about an upcoming game, not enthusiastic for it.

Should've included that he liked the previous games and this one is more like them.

I'm ready to get mad at a children's tennis game.

Did anyone play the Mario Tennis on GBA? It's so different than the others...

Anyway, excited to see this game!

I wonder how the story mode is going to work. Is it just going to be a Mario story? Are you going to get an original character and roid them up to superhuman levels? Are you going to be able to create a character? Or is it just going to be stupid Miis again?

...never understood the point of Miis, or the XBox avs. It's a weird added remove.
