Just because Mario Sports Mix combined multiple disciplines and the upcoming Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games will include 50 sports doesn't mean Mario's gone Jack of all trades, master of none: he's still in pursuit of single sport excellence, as next year's tentatively titled Mario Tennis proves.

The lawn tennis title was revealed at this week's Nintendo Conference in Japan, with seasoned plumbing sports developer Camelot Software Planning heading up production. We don't have much to go on for now, other than the predictable presence of Mario, Luigi, Bowser and Princess Peach as playable characters and a 2012 release. Still, the screenshots and trailer look nice, so that'll have to do for now.
