Mario Tennis Ultra Smash is the latest installment in the Mario sports spin-off series and developed by Camelot. With 16 playable characters, four of which can be unlocked, tennis fans will be spoiled for choices when it comes to selecting their champion player. Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash contains four gameplay modes with Mega Battle, Knockout Challenge, Mega Ball Rally and Classic Tennis, alongside its online matchmaking mode (which is slightly limited, but fun nonetheless).
My kids and I were checking out the games the other day at Walmart and my 4-year old son screams out “I want Mario Tennis game!”. I told my son that he might get it for Christmas, but only if he’s good. We looked a bit longer then headed for check out. When we got home there was a package on the front doorstep and I let the kids open it, not knowing what was inside. Wouldn’t you know it, it was Mario Tennis Ultra Smash and the Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival Bundle, both for the Wii U game console.
I’ve never heard my son so excited for something in his whole little four years of life. I wish I could have captured his excitement on video but it all happened so fast. Thanks to Nintendo for being so generous and for sending my kids some early Christmas presents to review.
