In celebration of Wimbledon and the late-May release of Mario Tennis Open for 3DS, Nintendo has shared an infographic titled “The Evolution of Mario Tennis” – a pictorial representation of the history and key moments of the much (most?) loved Mario sport series.
The Mario Tennis series spans 17 years. The Virtual Boy’s Mario’s Tennis (released in 1995) was the first tennis game to star the famous plumber and five more Mario Tennis titles (and one port) have since followed. Each of the Mario Tennis games introduces something new, be it RPG elements or new characters – in fact, Waluigi made his debut in the Mario Tennis games for the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color.
Are you a fan of the Mario Tennis series? I sure am.
