Aces high! New Mario Tennis screens

And boy does this GameCube tennis sim look a beauty

Nintendo has served up a fresh batch of Mario Tennis screens, and we have to say the GameCube incarnation of the N64 classic is looking rather tasty.

Due out early-ish next year (it wasn't listed on Nintendo's pre-Christmas schedule, unfortunately), the gloriously garish sports sim stars the likes of Mario, Luigi, Wario, Donkey Kong and Bowser as they all compete for glory in the Mushroom Kingdom tournaments.

Plenty of multiplayer action is promised (for up to four players), with power-ups and weapons also expected to join the fray. Should make a nice comic alternative to the Xbox's Top Spin.
