    Here the new Prince of Tennis Driving Smash. It's in 3D seems you will play only the bottom screen part with the stylus and you can see opponents of top screen

    here the officiel website : http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/tenipuri/ds/index.html3

    some screens from jeuxfrance.com taken from the magasine shonen jump

    Wow, i hope it's as freaking awesome as the first one.
    However it looks a totally different graphic/gameplay style.

    The only thing i disliked about the original is the realism of basic moves (not special moves). It is very hard to hit the ball out long accidentally, and even impossible to hit it out - wide.
    And perhaps that it lacked online play.

    I will shit myself if this has online play.

    But more SD 3d characters? damn japs

    but PoT is a great series and this is looking good judging the screenshots

    Looks very promising, I've enjoyed all the handheld POT games so far.

    I'm playing the first and I'm loving it. It's the best tennis game on DS.

    Hope Konami don't screw up. This could be a very good game and with an online mode... [​IMG]

    just check on the officiel website... there's two versions

    one will be release 20 dec 2007, the 'side genius'
    and the other one will be release one month later, on 24 january 2008, 'side king'

    wonder what the difference between these two versions

    Zillions of pixels far away~
    Holy crap, I just shattered in exitement when I saw this topic about the game - big fan of Prince of Tennis here!

    Crystal Drive was good, but I kinda wished something better. Hopefully this should get online play [​IMG]

    Considering the 'trend' of the past versions, they'll contain different characters and unlockable stuff, and only by playing it as cooperative multiplayer (with someone who has the other version) you can complete 100%.

    If it ever does, it won't be as good as Tenipuri.

    I've never played the DS game before, but this one doesn't look that bad. I'll try it when it comes out~

    Looks neat. Not a fan of the manga or anime, but the DS needs some more sports themed games to fill the void lol.
