Ryan Bloom / Jun 19th, 2015 No Comments
During a Nintendo Direct video presentation for E3 2015, Nintendo announced Mario and the gang are returning to the court for Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for Wii U.
Players will be able to take control of Mario, Bowser, Toad and more Mushroom Kingdom characters in one-on-one or two-on-two matches. Nintendo said some characters will be making their Mario Tennis debut.
New features for Ultra Smash include the ability to return balls hard with Jumpshot, and the new Mega Battles mode. In Mega Battles matches, players will be able to obtain a mushroom and grow into giants, giving them an advantage over others.
Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is expected to release this holiday. A trailer for the game can be viewed below.

A new Mario Tennis is a welcome addition to the Wii U holiday lineup. Nintendo said new characters will be making their franchise debut, but failed to mention who those characters are. It would be interesting if Ultra Smash features some kind of amiibo integration.
