Game Profile

This speedy table tennis game was originally released only in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. Now, over 20 years later, it makes its European debut on Virtual Console!

Play against the CPU or a friend in a best-of-three table tennis showdown! The goal of the game is to reach a set amount of points while maintaining a two-point lead. If you can do this, you win the game. If you reach the set amount but the scores are tied, you go into "deuce" and have to score two points in a row to win.

Use the full range of controls – smash, lob, forehand and backhand – to beat your opponent and send the crowd wild. And look out for a special appearance by Donkey Kong Jr. in the audience!

Smash Table Tennis delivers a backhand to your wallet.

Sometimes, you just have to wonder who at Nintendo is in charge of the Virtual Console game selection. Perhaps it's one of those people who, when unable to decide what to do, throws a dart at a dartboard with possible "options" on it in order to...

The Hanabi Festival delivers the 300th European VC game.

Nintendo's official UK magazine has once again spilled the beans on the upcoming Wii and DSi update. Surprisingly enough, Nintendo has not chosen to make Kirby's Dream Land 3 the 300th VC game, despite it being a planned Hanabi Festival release. At least the game which is now #300 is a great one!

I played the MSX version of this, and it failed to hold my interest very long.
It's a tad more advanced than Nintendo's Tennis, but not a whole lot, and there aren't exactly a whole slew of opponents to test your wits against. Then again, it's not like it has a whole lot of competition - maybe rabid Ping-pong fans will find it more interesting.

Family Table Tennis will probably make this a redundant release. Or, competition for it, which this would probably lose

This looks an awful lot like nes Tennis, and that's not a compliment. I'd rather invest in a real ping pong table instead. At least we're not getting it (for now, anyway). Hopefully NoA will give us a better imprt title instead.

@Bensei. Diskun's there because it's a Disk System game.

@Mr. Cheez

so your saying that you want Ninty to deprive the few fans of this game?! How could you



Terra said:

I recently bought a real table tennis table set so i will never buy this or Family Table Tennis

This looks like it'll be very awesome, maybe better then all Mario games, Zelda games, and all those other ones.

Oh, and by the way, that was 100% sarcasm. This game will suck as much as a vacuum cleaner.

Man this was awesome for the MSX, one of my favourite games on that system - I'll be downloading it if/when we see a Hanabi release over here!

Whats the point in releasing these old sports games when superior versions exist on Wii Sports/Wii play?



blackknight77 said:

The reason for putting out all of the old sports games is because that is what the VC service is about. I would rather them put out everything and let people choose what they want.
