Nintendo Treehouse Live: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - You know what would be better with Smash? Super Smash Bros.

And now the game and the reaction log no one asked for: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash!

Now I'm joined by my colleague, RawkHawk2010, as we get bored pretty fast from this back-and-forth sport!

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Bowser audience panels win
Clearly the best part of this whole thing.

Take it away, Nintendo Treehouse!

 Nintendork 13 13 2:46 pm
    With the E3 stuff?
    (Tennis Ultra Smash on Treehouse Live now)

 RawkHawk2010 2:46 pm
    Well, they still have more meetings/stories to cover.
    Yeah gonna watch that.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:46 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:46 pm
    But they were talking about their 15 minute discussion with Gregg Mayles.
    And throughout, they would catch him staring back at the DKU Rare archipelago card, entranced.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:47 pm
    "Jump shot" new to the series.

 RawkHawk2010 2:47 pm
    Because over the past 25 years he's responsible for creating all that.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:47 pm
    Giant Bowser

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Mega Battle Bowser
Toad tries to decide where to throw the Mega Mushroom. Notice the size of the mushroom to Toad.

 RawkHawk2010 2:47 pm
    So it was great mental image.
    okay watching

 Nintendork 13 13 2:47 pm
    "Mega Battle" mode.

 RawkHawk2010 2:48 pm
    Mario sucks.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:48 pm
    But he won the game. :-(

 Nintendork 13 13 2:48 pm
    The negative of turning Mega is being pegged.
    The Mega Mushroom from NSMB just falls onto a side of the court.
    Poor slow King Dad.

 RawkHawk2010 2:49 pm
    I don't get it.
    Are the Mega Shrooms just random?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:49 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:49 pm
    Sounds like a terrible mode.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:49 pm
    It might be given to dudes who are losing.
    As a comeback feature.
    You can see Toad have a Mega Mushroom above his head to throw.

 RawkHawk2010 2:50 pm
    Oh fuck.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:50 pm
    And he threw it to plumber-boy.

 RawkHawk2010 2:50 pm
    Fucking Simon Says from Mario Tennis Open is back.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:50 pm
    The Mega Mushroom is literally Toad's size.

 RawkHawk2010 2:51 pm
    Having to press a certain button based on the ball silhouette.
    To make it more "engaging"

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Bowser Peach Toad art renders models picture
These character renders are ancient.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:51 pm
    Same character art as previous games.
    (So not new art)

 RawkHawk2010 2:52 pm
    bad sign

 Nintendork 13 13 2:53 pm
    lol screencapped Toad tripping

Toad trip fall Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash mega racket
The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Toad's racket hit Peach on the way down!

 RawkHawk2010 2:53 pm
    I wish power shots were back.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:54 pm
    Bowser audience signs. :-)

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm
    "Full game is gonna have some... different Mushroom Kingdom characters."

 RawkHawk2010 2:55 pm
    Gregg Mayles
    To celebrate the announce of #RareReplay and 30 years of @RareLtd I'm going to recall 30 stories about the 30 games from my fading memory.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm
    Open Tour fans will recognise a lot of this game.

 RawkHawk2010 2:55 pm
    "Open Tour fans"

 Nintendork 13 13 2:56 pm
    "I forgot that we were friends."

 RawkHawk2010 2:56 pm
    One of the Treehouse dudes just said "Oh maaaaaaan" in Peach's tennis voice.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:57 pm
    Toad's idle animation though.
    boing boing boing
    Mega Mushroom was thrown onto Plumber-Boy's side
    when he just got "game point" (Adv.-40)
    So I guess it's not a comeback feature and it's just random.
    King Dad pegged Princess Toadstool.
    I miss Power Tennis.
    "I was still enjoying Toad being hit into the face."
    "Everybody is Mega but Bowser."

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Mega Battle doubles move Bowser Peach Toad
Even plumber-boy is displeased at the growth hormone abuse.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:00 pm
    "Good family fare."
    Break time.

 RawkHawk2010 3:01 pm
    Well that was a bore.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:01 pm
