Last year, Nintendo revealed a new Mario Tennis game for the Nintendo 3DS. This game is now titled Mario Tennis Open, and Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, revealed new details on the game today during his Nintendo Direct presentation.


Mario Tennis Open will let you use the touchscreen for shots such as lobs, top spins and so on. The game will also allow for gyro controls, and will have online multiplayer play. There’s also an option to play as your customized Mii.
