Uh, this does look exactly like MPT. The same models, animations, sprites, music, sounds, etc. look like they've been pulled straight from MPT. I'm not complaining, but it looks exactly the same at this point.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

I'd be fine with a portable MPT. That game was really fun on the GC, and the Wii up-port was also terrific, and ... Actually, it better only look like MPT. I'm not buying the same game 3 different times. And, besides Golden Sun DS, what has Camelot been doing for the past few years?

Exactly.

Soon enough it'll start looking like a new game, no worries.

I'll start getting excited when it starts looking like a new game and not Power Tennis. Really looking forward to this! I love Mario Tennis games (even if I prefer Mario Golf).

I would have thought if it was like Power Tennis they would have at least shown some of the special abilities in the trailer. From the trailer it looks more like how Mario Tennis on the N64 or GBC played..........

So you know, major facepalming on this side of the internet because I was NEVER talking about the visuals

I honestly looked at this trailer and the first thing I thought was "cool, can't see any special abilities or novelty stages. Looks like they're going back to the N64/GBC era Mario Tennis that I loved. Awesome!!". So I pointed that out along with my excitement about the possibility of a Mario Tennis game that goes back to focusing on the basics of the game.

Special abilities and power-ups would make it more Mario-like, but Power Tennis was too over the top. I hope they can find some middle ground. I only played Mario Tennis 64 briefly, but I played the Virtual Boy one a lot, and it was basically just a tennis game with Mario characters. Which was good, but could have been better.

Adam, y'know you can turn all of the power shots and items off in MPT, right? :3

honestly I probably disliked Power Tennis for a completely dumb reason. Basically, the game, and plenty of other games, seemed like a desperate attempt to try to make it seem like anyone was asking for more Super Mario Sunshine in Mario games in order to try to get rid of the negative opinions of it. Mainly because MPT is basically like "SUNSHINE WAS AWESOME PLEASE LOVE SUNSHINE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE" and forcing as many references to that game as humanly possible and almost no others (outside of the obligatory Luigi's Mansion and DKC references) and making even people who thought the game was still good (like me) hate Sunshine because Nintendo was constantly trying to force it into every Mario game for no reason. It was really a lame reason to dislike something and they did the same things with SM64 and Galaxy anyway.

That being said, Mario Power Tennis was still just Mario Tennis with gimmicks that didn't add anything worthwhile and just distracted from and damaged what was an excellent tennis video game.

Looks pretty awesome from just the trailer, I'd like to see what controls it'll have and whether you have to move around the character or the character moves towards the ball, sort of like Wii Sports. I'm hoping it's fully controllable, I am definitely buying this on release day though depending on whether I have enough money and when it's released, otherwise I'll get something else. :3

I haven't played it since probably the year it came out, Pix. I have no idea if I knew that at the time, but that's not the point: I would like items and stuff (that's what makes it Mario), but just not have them so overpowered.

Nintendo Power had a short article about Mario Tennis and it confirmed that Camelot is making it and that the game will use the touch screen and gyro controls.

Why? Touch screen and gyro controls better be optional, as I can't see any use for them at all, except as (possible) hotkey shortcuts a la SSFIV3D. MPT (on the GC) controls would be fine for the 3DS; why they need to waste time to use every feature of the 3DS is beyond me.

Exactly.

My problem with this 3DS game is that it plays too much like a 3DS game.

We don't even know how they're going to be used, so hold your horses there. Beter for a 3DS game to use a lot of the 3DS' capablities than little to none at all.

I can see the gyro and touch controls used in minigames, and maybe touch controls as an optional main control method. I just want an RPG mode, dammit!

Mario Tennis 3D is now Mario Tennis Open, and it's releasing in Japan May 24 and Europe the next day. I expect North America will be right after that, so we'll just wait for Reggie to confirm that.

The stages look really nice, though, from what little I could see of them. There's also going to be playable Miis that you can customize. And last but not least, there's going to be online. I like what I see so far.

Alright, the new trailer all of a sudden made me intrigued. Online play is a fantastic thing to have, and that soundtrack sent shakes down my spine.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that there aren`t any of those annoying special moves or whatever. YES!
All I need is the game to have hilarious Wario and Waluigi cutscenes and I`ll be there day one.
