About The Game
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!
