Mario Power Tennis is the second in the series of New Play Control titles and sees the much-loved Mario Power Tennis from GameCube adapted to offer this great game with new controls on Nintendo Wii. This game allows you to choose from a range of characters from the Mario franchise, and you can then either play regular tennis or tennis-themed mini-games. Play through the tournament mode in both singles and doubles matches, allowing you to unlock a variety of new characters, extra mini-games, and courts, as well as a more challenging star tournament on your Nintendo Wii, or on your Nintendo Wii U in Wii Mode.
The new controls allows you to perform different strokes by flicking the Wii remote in the corresponding direction, utilising the motion sensitive controls. A player can now charge up his power shot gauge by waiting and hitting the ball back at the latest possible moment. The game offers different levels of control types which increase in difficulty, appealing to varied levels of gamers – Easy, Medium, Technical, and Difficult.
A tennis court where racquets can be substituted for giant mallets, and players need to dodge the on-court crocodiles even as they return their opponent's serve – it has to be Mario Power Tennis! Though he doesn't cut the most obvious of sporting figures, Mario's prowess on the tennis court is a wonder to behold.
