    Mario Tennis for the 3DS was announced last year and according to this listing from GameFly, the final name of the game is Mario Tennis Open. If the listing is accurate, the game will arrive on the 20th of May. I suspect there’ll be an announcement closer to the anniversary of the 3DS if this is the case. It’d make sense for there to be a conference from Nintendo around that time.

    That actually makes a lot of sense, also if it's anything like the basket ball one on the Ds, I might buy it.

    I just hope there's enough replay value and not just a regular tennis game with Nintendo characters and priced at $40.

    Would be neat if there was a story-ish mode like Mario Tennis GBC.

    Came in here to say this, the GBC Mario tennis and Golf games were great examples of how to make a sports game deep and rewarding in single player mode.

    Sadly I think it'll just be tournaments with no RPG elements.

    This + decent online gameplay seems cool :) Also some cool minigames where you can compete with your friends for top scores.

    The game's being developed by the same developer(Camelot),so you never know
    Not much I can say about this news,though I guess the name sounds incomplete?

    Mario Tennis is god damn awesome.

    If it's the same as the N64/GC Mario Tennis games, then i'll buy it near launch.

    Since this is on 3DS, I'm assuming it'll be similar to the previous handheld entries in the series (GBA/GBC). The story mode is a great part of Mario Tennis, and just might push me into getting a 3DS.

    Am I the only one who thinks that they like left out part of the title?

    "Mario Tennis Open" seems, for lack of a better pun, too "open". What about "Mario Tennis Open Tour" or something like that? It's really bothering me. Also it needs "3D" on the end since apparently ALMOST EVERY SINGLE 3DS GAME needs to remind you that it uses 3D. Like "Oh, it's not Star Fox 64, it's Star Fox 64 3D".

    Well yo've got the Australian Open, the US Open, the French Open... None of those have anything like 'Tour' at the end at the end.

    Chill dude. There's still no solid confirmation that the actual name will be Mario Tennis Open.

    As for the '3D'...

    Resident Evil: Revelations
    Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
    Theatrhythm Final Fantasy
    Dynasty Warriors VS
    Dead or Alive: Dimensions
    Samurai Warriors: Chronicles
    And some more...

    Not all have the '3D' inside...

    lol Guild who said every 3DS game has 3D named after the title.

    Nintendo fanboys to the rescue.

    Guild has a point. A lot of 3DS titles have 3D in the name rather pointlessly. Starfox is definitely the best example though. They're trying way too hard to sell the gimmick.

    The fuck? How does that me a fanboy...

    Zelda Oot and star fox had 3D in their titles because they are both N64 ports, Those are the only Nintendo games to have 3D in the title and both N64 ports.

    is it really any worse when some of recent collections come out with "hd collection" padded in on the end?
