Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash gets a release date
The third installment in the Mario Tennis series, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, is set to release on the Wii U on November 20 according to Nintendo of America’s Twitter page. Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash was originally shown off at E3 2015 to the delight of fans who may have been fond of the previous installments of the game. Some new features exclusive to this title includes a “Jumpshot” ability where characters can leap into the air and slam the ball to the opponent’s side of the court and a Mega Mushroom power-up that will make characters massive in size.
The game will also feature standard single matches (1v1) and doubles (2v2) and whether or not the game will support online play has yet to be confirmed by Nintendo. Furthermore, Nintendo also clarified that Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash will include characters who have never been included in a Mario Tennis game before, but who these characters are and what the remainder of the power-ups might be are still unknown, but expect future updates leading up to the game’s release in the coming month.
