Love the box art. Really pops out. So, Mario Tennis will be another title to make use of Nintendo Network. Wonder if other 3rd parties will be using it because Revelations was really lacking in it's online component in terms of ease of connectivity- still, smooth online.

Anyhow, game is already pre-ordered and cannot wait to get my hands on it.

No power shots? Disappointing.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Just watched the trailer NL linked to, and I'm glad Nintendo/Camelot has abandoned realistic tennis gameplay for the sake of fun. Those topspin lobs look incredible.

Exactly.

I didn't have too many problems with Revelations online mode, apart from the glitches.
It can be a bit annoying when you play through most of a stage, get a key, run to the locked door and then realise that your key has disappeared.

Oh, it's not the gameplay, just the online interface and how tedious it is to connect to a friend online. You know how in MK7, you can go to the Home Menu when you're online? You can't do that with RE Revelations- most likely because it isn't using Nintendo Network to allow to do that. That's all really what I'm referring to. And waiting there in the lobby with nothing to do, waiting for someone to join up is irksome.

Looks kind of tame, but I may be interested just to have an online game that isn't a step away from pure randomness.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

Has there still been no word on whether the RPG mode from the previous handheld games will be returning? Because, honestly, if Camelot's decided to cut it, I will most likely be passing on this.

That box art is slick! Can't wait for this game but why is everyone hatin' on the Power moves. They have special moves in pretty much every Mario sports game since the Gamecube, that's what gives it that "Mario" edge. And in Mario Power Tennis you can turn the power ups off.

I think the closest thing to an RPG mode we'd get is a simple "Open" mode, starring your Mii, where you can play tournaments, minigames, unlock new equipment and make basic interactions with other characters. Kinda like Virtua Tennis. If there was anything on the scale of Power Tour we'd know by now.

It looks awesome though, and I'm stoked that it'll have online play. Oh, and power shots will be returning... the Japanese Nintendo Direct showed Peach using one.

I'm hoping for no lame "Power Shots." Those were the worst. Other than that, it just looks like...Mario Tennis. Which is a good thing, technically, I'm saying, I'm not quite "wowed" yet.

@Kid_A

If you don't want to use them, then you can turn them off. If they allowed it in Mario Power Tennis, then they would definitely have it in Mario Tennis Open.

And I love the Power Shots because it adds a little bit more "strategy" to the gameplay. In Power Tour, they did a phenomenal job with it so hopefully, they base it closely to Power Tour.

I love chaos too, so.. I'm glad it's in

EDIT: I saw the instructional video on this game and I can't wait. Liking the customization options for Miis. Wondering if there is an RPG mode in the game...

I still didn't mind how Revelations was done, although being able to access the Home menu to recruit people via your status would have been nice.
I didn't mind the whole waiting in the lobby thing, as quite often it'd give you some time to sort through your weapons and missions and stuff, and I never really found that it'd take very long for someone to join.
In saying that though, it's good to see there being leaderboards and stuff with this title.
Should be a bit of fun, if I have Internet that will allow me to play my 3DS online by then.
My one problem I had with the Mario Kart 7 online, was that my Internet wouldn't even let me play at all unless there was only one or two other people! D:

Well, the full game actually offers a compromise, Kid_A and HeroOfWaffles. There are shots sort of like mini power shots. Here's a snippet from a Nintendo Power interview with producer/lead designer Hiroyuki Takahashi and co-producer Toshiharu Izuno.

Nintendo Power wrote:

Interviewer: Is there an equivalent to Power Shots from Mario Power Tennis in this game?

Hiroyuki: There's a shot you might call a "mini Power Shot." By delivering a well-timed shot with either your own hit or the Chance Areas that appear as the game progresses, it's possible to unleash a decisive shot.

Toshiharu: The equivalent is the back-and-forth of a high-speed rally. And we hope you'll enjoy the exhilarating feeling of the remade powered-up-shot mechanic.

Nintendo Power on two ways to play:

Nintendo Power wrote:

To go along with the new touch-screen controls is a gameplay enhancement that takes advantage of the N3DS system's gyro sensor. Holding the system flat forces the camera into a mostly overhead view of the court - typical for tennis games. If you put the N3DS in a vertical position, though, the camera shifts behind your character. From this point of view, you aim your shots by simply moving the system left and right. While playing in this Dynamic View mode, your character will automatically run to where the ball is approaching, leaving you free to choose your shot and aim it properly. Not having to worry about reaching the ball means casual players will especially benefit from this mode. It's also worth mentioning that the N3DS automatically turns off its 3D capabilities while in Dynamic View, as the frequent movement of the system would disrupt the stereoscopic effect.

Nintendo Power on character classes:

Nintendo Power wrote:

There are 13 characters available at the start of Mario Tennis Open. Each one has a special attribute that will affect how you play as him or her. The information here will help you pick the character that's best for you.
ALL-AROUND
Beginners will want to start with these characters. They have no particular strengths or weaknesses, but they're well-balanced and easy to control.
EXAMPLES: Mario, Luigi

TECHNIQUE
These characters have great control over the ball, allowing them to easily hit it to the back of the court, where it is difficult to return.
EXAMPLES: Peach, Daisy

SPEED
If you want to get to the ball fast, these are the guys to choose. They're not particularly strong, but they can move around the court with ease.
EXAMPLES: Yoshi, Diddy Kong

TRICKY
Skilled players can make good use of these characters. Their ability to hit wild curve shots can confuse unprepared opponents.
EXAMPLES: Boo, Bowser Jr.

POWER
These are the "big guys," and as you might imagine, they're plenty strong. They'll send the ball flying back to your opponent.
EXAMPLES: Donkey Kong, Wario, Bowser

DEFENSE
As a defensive player, Waluigi can reach balls that would be out of range for other characters. It's tough to sneak a shot past his lanky limbs.
EXAMPLES: Waluigi

In addition to the many Mario-universe characters, you can choose to play as your Mii. This personalized character doesn't have any predefined skills, so it's up to your natural abilities to win the cup.

Seems pretty interesting. As long as it isn't just normal tennis, I'm good. If I want normal tennis, I'll get Virtua Tennis or something
