Nintendo has announced that the Sprite Fairy from the incredible Super Mario 3D World will appear in the upcoming Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for Wii U. This is a welcomed surprise and we love the fact that they are including her into this upcoming Wii U exclusive.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash – A Break from Adventuring Trailer

Just like the title of this article says, here is an all new trailer starring the upcoming Wii U title, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. The game, which is headed to the Wii U on November 20th, features some pretty nifty graphics and we imagine it’s going to be pretty fun to play. I fully expect a new Nintendo Direct before the games launch showcasing more of the title but only time will tell.

For now, check out the new Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash – A Break from Adventuring Trailer and let us know if you dig it.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash – Monsters of the Court Trailer

Nintendo has posted an all new Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash trailer, showcasing two of the games secret characters – Dry Bowser and Magikoopa. The Wii U exclusive arrives next month and features some nifty graphics and online play. While this game feels a bit like a “filler” title, I am sure it will be fun to play with everyone in the family and should provide some fun for everyone.

Check out the new trailer and let us know if you plan on picking up the game. Enjoy.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Details Announced


Nintendo has released some brand new details on their upcoming Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash title for the Wii U. Check out the new details below and let us know if you plan on getting the game next month:

“Amiibo Compatibility: Players can choose supported amiibo figures to be partners in online doubles matches, or players can enlist them to battle strong computer-controlled opponents in the offline Knockout Challenge mode. The more matches an amiibo plays, the more experience and skill it will gain. Currently available compatible amiibo include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Yarn Yoshis, Rosalina, Wario, Toad and Donkey Kong.

New Moves: On top of standard shots like topspin, lobs and slices, the new Ultra Smash move sees characters leap high into the air and smash the ball down to devastating effect. Colorful Chance Areas occasionally appear to help players unleash super-strong smash or bamboozling slices to flummox adversaries on the other side of the net.

Game-Play Modes:

Knockout Challenge: Tense tiebreak matches against increasingly difficult computer-controlled opponents await in this single-player mode. If the going gets too tough, players can call in a compatible amiibo as a doubles partner.

Mega Battle: After grabbing a Mega Mushroom, characters grow to gigantic proportions and can dominate the court with their increased power and range.

Classic Tennis: For those who prefer their tennis a little more traditional, Classic Tennis offers two variations: Standard mode features Chance Shots and Jump Shots but no Mega Mushrooms, while Simple puts competitors on the court with nothing but the net and the ball.

Online Multiplayer: Go up against adversaries from around the world in competitive ranked play in either Mega Battle or Classic Tennis modes, or quickly jump into more casual matches. Two players* on the same console can team up to take on all comers, or a supported amiibo can join as a doubles partner on the online courts.

Multiple Controller Options: Players can choose their favorite control option, as the game supports the Wii U GamePad, Wii Remote, Wii U Pro Controller and Classic Controller Pro options.”

Here is The Official Mario Tennis Ultra Smash Box Art


The official box art for the upcoming Mario Tennis Ultra Smash has been revealed and you all can check it out above. The upcoming Wii U title is headed exclusively to Wii U and will be one of Nintendo’s premier titles headed into the Holiday season. Although this one may be falling under the radar (we still haven’t seen too much of it yet), we fully expect the game to be great fun and cannot wait to try it ourselves. Of course, we are praying that Nintendo showcases the game in an all new Nintendo Direct but I am not holding my breath for it.
