Couldn't see a thread on this, but there's a new story mode trailer, looks decent :)

There's a severe lack of tennis games this gen, what happened to the likes of Virtua Tennis, Grand Slam and Top Spin?

It has a mode with none of the special stuff and just the basic moves.

It looks pretty much like Mario Tennis has always looked, and they have already confirmed you can play a classic mode that is pure tennis without the gimmicks.

I come for the video games, I stay for the insanity of what people have to say about things.

I see his point when you get arch the trailer. It's like tennis on wacky shite with loads of crap added.

I remember when people complained about the GameCube game for the power shot things, this seems to have that and more and yet people are all like "oh so sexy".

I'm getting it, but tbh I'm hoping that if we have a day where we can someone place this as a group it'll be classic tennis.

It has a mode that is literally just normal tennis.

For folk looking for a more "sensible" version of tennis, AO International Tennis (PS4, XBO) recently launched (although, unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be great) and Tennis World Tour (Switch, PS4, XBO, PC) launches next month.

Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to bouncing on a rainbow-coloured court and hitting mushroom-powered shots into Yoshi's backside :toot: .

This looks great, the problem is that I would need to buy it digitally to make it worthwhile.

Actually looks like they've bothered to make a game with some actual content here and not something that was knocked up in a couple of months (like Ultra Smash)
