Mario Tennis (Wii Virtual Console / Nintendo 64)

Game Profile

Acclaimed as one of the most addictively fun games on the Nintendo 64, Mario Tennis has returned on Virtual Console!

The controls are simple and intuitive to give you a realistic tennis feel. Keep your opponent guessing by mixing up volleys and lobs, unleashing backhand smashes or unnerving them with different types of spin. The game sticks to the official rules of tennis and has several different modes - from the standard Tournament to the wacky P####ha Challenge.

Choose from 16 adorable Nintendo characters to play with. Each character has unique attributes that give them an edge on the court. Baby Mario is incredibly fast and Donkey Kong has immense power but Boo can put some tricky spin on the ball. Find a character that fits your style!

Whether trying to unlock all the secrets in single-player mode, or having friends over for some intense fun in multiplayer mode, this is a game you won't ever want to put down!

When Mario Golf was released back in 1999, it was already known that Camelot was working on another Mario sports title for the N64. After a decent title released for the sadly ill-fated Virtual Boy a few years before, Camelot gave Mario another go at...

Are you serious? Another N64 game? Woohoo!...even though I've never liked Mario Tennis. Mario Golf is way better in my books.

If they wanted a wimbledon tie-in, I'd have thought SNES Super Tennis would have been more likely. But I am quite glad to see another N64 game come to the Virtual Console.

I effing love Super Tennis. I really hope it gets released on the VC.

I've never played this, but it looks very similar to the GBA version, which was epic (must've played through its campaign at least three times). I'll defo download it once it hits over here. :3

This game is great. :D I personally like it more than the Gamecube/GBA one sometimes. No special abilities and all that fun jazz, just tennis. Yes, true, you could turn those off... but, still... this is the game that made me understand the rules and scoring in tennis and wanting to get into it in the first place! Funny thing is I asked for golf from my mom, but she picked this up instead hoping it'd be just as fun. Personally I like it more so cause its way easier... but golf is fun for something to concentrate on. Though I already own this game... It's very tempting to get...

EDIT: Oh yeah! And it's where indeed Waluigi first appeared! That alone makes this game epic win. :D And his awesome rainbowy eyes of awesome!... ...Why doesn't he do that anymore??

I bought a Nintendo Points Card today thinking they would release this game today. Now I felt like I wasted my money when the game was never released in NA.

Uhh... It really comes down to what sport you like better...
Tennis is easier though. I think at least.
