Well, this is a surprise, this shows that it may not be a Power Tennis port after all, I figured that was just a concept demo if anything. But damn that's soon for a game which we know LITTLE about.

Edit: Screencapped incase of Nintendo Ninjas.

Thats how Nintendo rolls. Its a mario sports game, we and the press know what to expect. No doubt they will have some spring event to showcase all this stuff eventually.

EDIT: Please god let their be RPG elements.

Unless it has an RPG mode like people have wanted, I don't think there's much to talk about bar how it will utilize the 3Ds' on-line functions, and the character roster which will probably be pretty standard.

Still excited for it though, Mario Tennis rocks.

I wouldn't be shocked. Nintendo has a habit of monthly releases since September.

September - Star Fox 64 3D
October - Pokemon Rumble Blast
November - Super Mario 3D Land
December - Pushmo, Mario Kart 7
February - Sakura Samurai
March - Kid Icarus: Uprising
April - Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir

Give me Tricky Boo and RPG elements and I'll be there day one. Heck I'll probably be there anyways because Mario Tennis is just that awesome!

Firs time I hear about the revelation of the game back then, been just a proof of concept. They even said that there was going to use some sort of use for the gyros.

hero is right. the 3DS footage is almost exactly the same game as the GCN game. right down to the celebration mario does after winning a point.

I don't think those videos tell people that it should've been assumed it was going to be a port, but it's good a different title would convince them it's not I guess.

Love me some Mario Tennis. Can't wait for a portable version. I hope this date sticks.

So it has Mario's generic 3D model and it's a tennis game. Therefore port.

It has Mario's Paper model and it's an RPG. Therefore port.

People be crazy.

September - Star Fox 64 3D
October - Pokemon Rumble Blast
November - Super Mario 3D Land
December - Pushmo, Mario Kart 7
February - Sakura Samurai
March - Kid Icarus: Uprising
April - Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, Fire Emblem: Awakening

Because, Japan.

So, what's the likelihood this date is just a placeholder?

yeah, its just uses the same models, animations, same chairs, same stadiums, same textures, same replay cameras. clearly not a port.

Let's bet the game, if it's a PT port, I'll buy it for you. If it isn't you get it for me.

Would rather have Luigi's Mansion around that time. I hope they don't hold that game until fall.

I hope this plays exactly like the 64 version. That game was perfect. The Gamecube game didn't click for me.

Hopefully we get more light on whats happening in NA between april and e3 for nintendo soon. I really see this as a game they would probably put out before e3, I mean new game or not there isn't really much to be revealed about such a title before releasing it.

Ditto. N64 gameplay + GCN graphics + GBC RPG mode = best handheld tennis game in history.

Then do the same for Golf next year.

I'm just curious how this game will use the gyro sensor. I can't see it working in tennis, so I imagine that this game will have minigames that use it.

Probably because they added the stupid special power shots that you had to play in all the single player and tournament modes. Really ruined the otherwise great game. Really took the focus on what was important.

I expect online multiplayer.

Best thing ever was in the gbc game in which you realized that you can play against mario... who lives on a rainbow... which apparently has an airport!

Insanity.
