Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash spikes the Wii U court in 2016

Nothing's ever small in the Mushroom Kingdom; not plumbing, not racing, not even tennis. Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for Wii U, revealed today as part of Nintendo's digital conference for E3 2015, looks to be a good example of how the world of Mario takes even the simple things in life to an absurd extreme.

Although no solid details regarding the gameplay were given, a short trailer showed Mario, Bowser, Peach and Toad competing on the court, growing large and smashing the tennis ball with their unique powers so hard it burst into flames. Nintendo also revealed that the game is set to launch sometime in 2016.
