Would be fun if we could go against friends online. I don't remember if we did give out our Friend Codes to each other.

Well not through request personally, but through a thread where people gave out their codes, can't remember the title though but pretty sure I'm one of the last guys to post there.

After Ultra Smash, it's good to see a Mario Tennis game packed with content and new features again.

This actually looks like a really solid game.

Thank god they mentioned simple rules and motion controls towards the end of the video. I was getting worried. Racket breaking looks very dumb. They should have just made the fancy moves drain your meter more and completely left out the racket breaking. Who in their right mind think its going to be fun to have the game just suddenly end (and this will likely happen often) because their racket broke?! That will be an awful gameplay experience. The other fancy stuff might be cool, but if I get this I imagine 90% of the time I'll be using simple rules and motion controls.

I mean, if your skilled enough, you can just block all of them without breaking your racket ....

Sounds like a BoftW mechanic that no one is really asking for.

Yet, they added a blocking mechanic to counter the effect. If you get skilled, your racket will never break. That ain't like BOTW.
