Yoshi Chase ramps up Mario Tennis Open launch
In an exciting Nintendo 3DS exclusive, a massive Yoshi hunt will soon become available for the upcoming Mario Tennis Open launch on 25th May. The hunt, entitled The Yoshi Chase, will involve tracking down a series of different-coloured Yoshis, playable in Mario Tennis Open, through corresponding QR codes released over the coming weeks through various channels. The Black Yoshi and White Yoshi will be the first to be released but there are many more in the pipeline so keep your eyes peeled.
Each Yoshi QR code will be released in a variety of different ways and at different times, so you will have to stay alert to find them – the Black Yoshi will be distributed first through special sampling events at 30 Asda stores around the UK. Look out for Black Yoshi on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th May.
Mario Tennis Open is packed full of Mario-themed arcade tennis action. Choose from singles or doubles matches, single player and multiplayer modes and a variety of special games such as Super Mario Tennis, Ring Shot and Galaxy Rally. With easy-to-pick-up-and-play gameplay and a range of modes to suit your mood, you will be serving up a storm before you know it.
As well as the ability to customise your Mii character with new rackets, clothing and trainers, there is also a choice of 11 different court surfaces which affect the angle, speed and bounce of the ball, with each one set in a familiar location from the Mario series. In addition, you can easily select from a range of classic tennis shots such as Topspin, Slice or Drop Shot to take down your opponent via the Touch Screen on your Nintendo 3DS.
Mario Tennis Open also makes full use of the online capabilities of Nintendo 3DS by allowing you to play against random opponents and friends on Nintendo Network as well as playing over local wireless connections. Depending on your performance in Open Matches played over Nintendo Network, you could get added to the leaderboard and see yourself rise to the top. Online matches will see you paired against opponents with similar strengths and weaknesses to you; defeat them to rise up the rankings!
