Yeah, but if I play as a character other than my Mii every once in a while, it makes the game feel more fresh in my opinion.

Take MK7, for instance. I like to play with my Mii the most, but I also like to play as Rosalina, Luigi, Toad, and Daisy, because of their slight difference in stats. It makes the gameplay slightly different.

In this, however, I like to play as my Mii, Luigi, and Blue Yoshi. If they had put in Rosalina instead of Luma like they should have, I would play as her. However, I don't like Luma because he slips and slides all over the court, making it hard to stay on Shot Panels. I don't play as Daisy because, well, her stats just don't do it for me. It may work for others, but it doesn't work with me. Which is sad, because she's a my second favorite princess(even though Rosalina technically isn't a princess, I still consider one).

I'm probably not getting this game but I saw this:

Additionally, Open Match mode can automatically pair players of comparable skill levels.
That's a pretty cool feature. How well does it work so far? Can anyone tell?

It doesn't work too well, occasionally you will get paired with people with a higher rating than yours could be even 1000+ Also I saw a video where an american got paired up with a japanese player, even though online is "region locked"

My rating is around mid 3000's and I still get paired with 100's and 0's... Only against japanese people, too!

I'm getting killed online. If people are using the automated-movements gyro feature they should stop because it's ridiculously unfair.

Yes. While the reviews weren't that flattering everyone I know personally online who has it loves it.

Alrigh I'm trusting you on this one. From what I hear on here I want to get it but then I see the reviews and turn to be quite skeptical. And I will play online so I sure hope it's worth it!
What would you rate it personally?

I love when they make a Mario Sports game and they remix it up like Super Mario Smash Football

And it's got Wi-fi...that's good for me...

I haven't got it yet (in the UK release date is the 25th) but I am pretty sure it will be 8 or 9 out of 10. I don't tend to agree with the reviews of IGN, etc, I trust the independent magazine I read, NGamer. They gave it 80% and just said there were a few small things they missed but that it was a very solid game and a lot of fun.

I've not played previous Mario Tennis games though so I wont be disappointed at the lack of a story mode, etc.

Yes, but its hard to hit one out on purpose. I usually only get them when I go up to the net and try to smash it to the side. I have also never seen a double fault.

Everyone will be getting the same ones. The game is programmed the same, and every country will get the same colors. The times may differ, as the countries do.

Watch about about the lag though. 5 games I was disconnected from and 1 because I didn't serve for 30 secs. xD But although you disconnect, you don't lose rating but your opponet does receive rating though. I don't know if they receive your victory medal after you lose then disconnect. (correct me if i'm wrong) Other than that it's fun.

Haven't watched undertow in a while. But I never liked it too much to begin with. So what, he hates the 3DS or something?

The game saves before every match, so if you lose the last match in a tournament, you'll be able to start again at that last match.

The chance shots are a bit naff. I really like the high score games though, especially Super Mario Tennis. If anyone is interested in some online leaderboards for the scores, there are some here.

I have a Japanese 3DS, and I really want it, but on eBay, it costs $100+. I don't know if it's worth the money, or if it's any better than Wii Sports (Resort)'s (Table) Tennis mode. Should I get it?

Get it. It has so much replay value it's crazy. I can see myself playing this game for like 200 hours. Just like Mario Kart. Except Mario Kart is still better. But MTO is very good. Single Player replay value and amount of things to do is already extensive. Plus having online just makes it even better.

Oh, raging went down.

I found that using Y to hit the ball to the back 2 squares works well for the first 40 hits because you don't need to charge it. Then for the next 40 using Y for the back and B+A for the front squares. Finally, for the last 20 hits use your quick thinking skills to determine whether to use Y or B+A

I have a few questions...
1.) When serving the ball, how long after tossing it up do you press the button again so that you get a "Nice!"/ball goes fast? I've had trouble figuring that out >.<

2.) Do most people play with gyro online? I've played a few matches online and they're diabolically good -.- .. ive tried to play with gyro too, and its just not nearly as fun :T

I am really loving this game so far. From switching it on, I played 7 hours straight. Then I stopped to eat and I've played an hour or so more. I think I'll get a good 100 hours out of it, just trying to beat all the tournaments with every player (it keeps track of it, so why not?) as well as collecting enough coins to buy all the clothes and accessories. And on top of that, there's the online! So much replay value here.

I have two problems with the game though: Firstly, I'm a bit peeved that you can't do doubles matches with randomers online, I think that would have been great fun. Also, having to first unlock the clothing THEN collect coins to buy them is a teensy bit annoying, especially when the only ways to get coins are by playing the small selection of minigames or through streetpass...

I love the game but those are just things that stand in the way of making it amazing

I love the game, I have now starred every character and tomorrow my goal is to complete all the cups. I am saving up 50,000 coins for the Toad Suit at the moment and have had a very productive day earning loads of new suits in minigames.

THE ONLY THING I HATE ABOUT THIS GAME IS THAT STUPID SUPER MARIO WALL MINIGAME!!!

ASJFSIUGRHSKRGHZ.DHNZDGERKJGNOSLFJSL

It makes me want to snap the cartridge in half. ._.


I've not tried online yet, I am gonna try to complete all I can in single player before I venture into that side of the game.

If you bump into a DY★Conor then say Hi.

I just lost 40 points for winning by 2 points in an extended game that went to a tie breaker online. Next game, I got blown out and gained 16 points. What is the logic behind this?

Reminds me of Wii Sports' Tennis. I won against Elisa by a REALLY LONG deuce, and I lost 12 points.

Decided to buy it, only cost $25 since I chopped off $30 with a gift card. I've beat the first cup, it's pretty fun, but I definitely think the Gyro controls are completely stupid, and is super boring if you use them.

Geez, the Online Matches are so broken. With the Gyro players, there is no point even playing. Though really liking Single Player Tournaments.

I thought the same way too, though luckily, it turned out that not everyone online uses them. It does ruin the online experience when people do. Also, make sure, if you're using your Mii, that you're upgrading your skills by buying different clothes, shoes and rackets; it makes a difference.

6.5 isn't that bad a score, though I would probably give it a 7 or a 7.5. I think it's a lot of fun and it's Mario Tennis. It brings back memories from the GBC for me.

It's kind of like Mario Kart 7 but on a tennis court and without blue shells, with chance shot circles replacing items. If you like Mario Kart and you enjoy tennis I don't really see why you wouldn't like this game.

Did anyone else face a Wario player with ratings around 2020-2256? Most likely you haven't

That guy with his topspin smash shots always pushes me back enabling him to hit the tennis ball on the other side of my court > I always hate that.

Yea, poor Australia.. I wouldn't have bought it if it had the RRP of $69.95 like most new 3DS games do, lucky Target had a sale.

Was charging my 3DS and I kicked the cord, sending it to the floor and making the game eject... do I have to redo the tournament I was in?

lol, why don't you just check instead of asking?

Anyway as I said before, the game saves before every match, so if you were on the last match when the cartridge was ejected, you should be able to start from the last match.

Hey guys anyone in Australia looking to play doubles?

FC 2105 9545 2257

Added after 3 minutes:

also I know this may be a noob question but is there really that much of an advantage to play with gyroscope on? Because I haven't noticed any matches being particularly more difficult than others

When the gyroscope controls are on you automatically move towards to ball thus giving you an advantage.

Yeah, online I noticed that some people seem abnormally good at always catching the ball while other people are more normal, catch some, miss others. Either they're really good, or they're benefiting from the fact that the gyro view moves your character to the ball for you.

There is a region lock...only australia can play with use europeans.
Americans and the Japanese can't play with us.

Nintendo seem very eager to release the yoshi rainbow slowly in Europe.

I'm about 8k away from unlocking the 50 000 coin costume. Also Air Master I would suggest using a tricky player online if you're having trouble beating people. I find that a lot of players in the Australian region find it hard to return tricky serves plus the added side spin on lobs make it just that little bit harder for people to read your moves.

I live in europe. Give me a visitor message if you want to play with me

And also...It's not only region locked, it's ip locked too. So if I go to america for example I guess I can't play at all...

Go down the pipe with a lot of blocks a few times to build up a lot of coins and time. Then eventually don't go down the pipe and go on. There is another pipe later you have to go down, then a block you have to hit to go into the clouds (with a vine), and just keep going from there...

It does end. To earn the wario suit you need 800 coins by the end, so I usually go down the pipe at the start a few times to get about 500'ish coins and 200 seconds on the clock before I go on.

Loving this game, I got it 2 days early luckily and I've been playing it non stop. I'm pretty good online, but I don't have many people to play with >.< I'd love to do some doubles with people, sounds like it'd be really fun.

Friends online is region locked. I can't play with any Americans, whenever I open a room it doesnt show on their account and vice versa. Unless of course someone can shed some light on this?

I'm from Australia and have had no luck with any of you North American's.

Galaxy Rally level four is the fastest way to a lot of coins or if you have a sibling with a 3DS there is an even better way.



I now only have three more suits to get, the 50 streetpasses suit (DK), 20 consec streetpass wins (on 19 atm) (Shy Guy) and the buy 100 items from the shop suit (I have 93) (Boo).

I just got it, and I played the first two tournaments...It was extremely EASY...but then I tried an online match, and I got my butt waxed! I definitely need some more practice before I start playing online matches. Overall it's pretty fun, and when I start playing more online matches it'll get even better!

Is Gyro mode basically Wii Sports mode (sorry I keep refrencing it)? Because in Wii Sports, you automatically move. If it is, making those 86 out of 100 Wii Sports Resort / Wii Party NPCs was definatly worth it.

Also, if Mii stats are customisable, doesn't that mean there is no best character, only the Mii, if you use the stat distribution you want?

Controls are hard, but still adaptable. Get it! I need someone to run UK in my group!

I'm thinking of buying this game this weekend. Worth it? Someone tell me the pros and cons of it? Don't know if I should fork over like 40 bucks for a tennis game... Pretty reluctant, as cash doesn't come easy with a part time job doing stupid stuff like babysitting and collecting allowance money.

I've been playing all the console Tennis's since 64.
I really like this one and think it's a great addition to the series!
Pros
------

Customization
Online
Long and hard Solo mode
Great MiniGames
Great Music
Cons
-------

Lag for multiplayer if you have crappy router
No Storyline
No Power moves for each player
____________________________
Overall, I would give it a 6/10. It's definitely worth buying though!

My internet is pretty fast, actually. It rarely (I mean like once a year) is down for like 5 minutes, so I think lagging won't be a problem. Dad just purchased a new router like a month ago, and it's great. So I guess I will be buying it if you recommend it. Just tell me, is it a WOW game like MK7? Something really worth buying, owning, and playing.

First off, MK7 is Not a WOW Game. If you think that excuse of a sequel was good, then you will love this game. Like I said, I've been playing them for awhile, and this one is great. If it wasn't, I wouldn't still be playing, which I am. XD

I've been playing online on MTO for awhile and I hate when people use boos.....I think they are quite overpowered, especially with that teleporting move.

Have you ever faced a boo using motion controls? I have and I lost a heck of a lot of points. ._.

Just unlocked all costumes and clothes today. Now all I have to do for completion is play each and every character in Exhibition and win all the cups with each character. ^_^

Yeah, Boo lacks power and so picking a power character is game over for a Boo.

I sometimes use Boo, but I get unlucky and face Dry Bowser. They just go up to the net and drop shot then smash. It can be hard to handle if lobs dont work. Its easy to tell if something is using the gyro controls, when you serve move left and right, and they will keep moving back and forth at the same speed/fasion.

I just got it and found a way to pwn people who aren't defense or tricky hit a drop shot to the opposite direction they are facing and it will go right to the line of out it won't be out ofc but it's hard to hit lol but pepole already know this most likely just for those who don't loving it so far

Power doesnt always beat Boo, as they are slow and a trick shot can get them. When I use Boo, the only shots I miss are from the other side of the court, as Boo is slow even with his teleporting move.

yes they do

and to all who are complaining about no rpg mode, here is a link(hopefully it shows) that lets you play past mario tennis games on your computer for free:

Play Retro Classic Games roms Online Free - search: Mario Tennis - system: - searchBy: name - Vizzed

it's not the same as a new rpg, but it's still better than nothing...


and here is the link to tell Nintendo how much you want RPG mode in MTO in a game update if possible:

DON'T GET IT BRO! Unless you just want anything in your 3DS library get it. But, if you want good games you'll play DON'T GET IT! The single player took me 2 and a half hours to complete and online lags and doesn't work at all for me! DON'T GET IT!

Online works GREAT for me! Hardly any lag! Single player is definitely longer than 2.5 hours...I'm trying to beat single tournaments with each character, which takes a long time when played leisurely. Plus the mini-games are pretty fun too! I think it's definitely worth it...probably the best 3DS game I have.

I guess Mario Party 5 is on the top of my "Games I Want" list now. From the way you said that, $100 is definatly not worth it, right?

Games great. Reason it's short is because of the memory limitations. Definitely not 2 hrs to beat....It took me a couple days to 100 percent everything.

Argh! You know what? I'm giving into buying the game. This Saturday I'm heading to Gamestop and picking it up. Watching this game's trailers makes me feel like I did when Super Mario 3D Land came out near December. I would just sit there all upset that I didn't own the title! I really want Mario Tennis Open, and I'm going to buy it. Anyone know the lowest pricing for this game? Should I buy new or used?

Agreed. Its 99.9% of the time the router, NOT the game.

I know! I beat the same poor kid 3 times in a row! My lag is due to the other connection, as I had Nintendo themselves help me fix it.

Dude ranking means jack. The leaderboard just shows you who plays online the most. I'd be more concerned about playing someone with the top VR rating 3 times in a row

Wow to be number 1 on the leader board you need to keep playing MTO. If you even stop playing for a day or two someone is going to overrun you. I was in the 2198th place but I stopped playing for like 4 days and I was suddenly 2462th place.

I was like "WTF?!?!?!"

Dude I stopped playing for a week and I went from top 1000 to high 8000's. People need lives

Wow! when you didn't play a game for a week people passed you in the rankings! doesn't mean people have to play 24/7.

Dude the monthly leaderboard is based on how often you play. Obviously people have been playing more than me if my rank is dropping! Yes they may not have been playing 24/7 but people just need to learn to play less i.e have a life outside of video games. With that being said what annoys me even more is that 9 times out of 10 I beat people with a higher monthly leaderboard score which means people are not getting better

I've even changed my gear to make it harder for me to win online.

Added after 1 1:

Oh just incase you couldn't understand how the monthly leader board scores work, you gain points whether you win or lose online. If that's not explicit enough for you, or an unfathomable concept for you to grasp you gain points every time you play online. Hopefully I've managed to clarify the obvious for you and maybe now you can understand the point of my original post

Gee, way to be nice. The people with high leaderboard ranks are kids who most likely play after school. You don't need to play all the time. If you can beat them easily, then they might actually have a life and just play it on they're free time. They may lose a lot, but like you said, the leaderboard scores go up even if you lose, so they're probably just trying to enjoy the game, regardless of the outcome.

YES! My mom's bringing the car back this evening! I get to go to Gamestop and pick the game up today So excited! What's the best feature of the game? I know it's an opinion question, but still. What should I seriously be looking forward to?

Nothing, The online doesn't work at all and the com are easy on ACE the hardest difficulty and the single player took me 2 and a half hours to beat. The game seems fun from Videos but listen to the reviews. Get, Star fox 3d, Resident evil, Cave story, Mario kart/3d land, OoT, MGSSE, KI:U, Heroes of ruin, save up for something else. TRUST ME!

Now your exaggerating with that Pushmo example,

The Online DOES work you probably have a crappy router(no offence). And Ace IS hard, either your lying or you have been rematching the Ace difficulty for long period of time

I've got the game and it is decent, especially the way you can customize your mii and the special games are pretty sweet. It's a good game but you'll probably get bored of it in a month.

Agreed.

When the guy says he's finished the game in 2.5 hrs I doubt he has 100% completed it. I think he means he has just finished the tourney with all characters so they're all starred and possibly finished all the special games. It's easy if that's all you're going to do with the game, but if you wana beat all the ACE level CPU it'll take longer, but I doubt many people will be bothered to do this. While granted they are hard to beat, if the guy IS a gaming God he probably figured out the weaknesses of ACE level CPU (yes there are some) and exploited them and perhaps that's how he managed to "finish" the game in 2.5 hrs. But even then earning 50 000 coins AND buying 100 items from the shop take more than 2.5hrs to do, so I doubt he even has all the costumes.

It's all in the eye of the beholder. It might suck for you but not for other's. Depends what you want out of a game. Kind of a pointless post in this thread don't you think?

I'm loving this game. In the higher difficulty star cups I find myself swearing at the game almost as much as I did in Mario Kart 7.

Mario Kart 7? Hard? Was there some secret "Mario Kart Wii Difficulty" mode I missed?

Actually Mario Kart Wii was one of the easiest mario karts ever. And MK7 is much easier. This Mario Tennis is also one of the easier Mario Tennis's.

That really was the easiest.

Also here is a video with the North American Black Yoshi qr code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqNTT-x4fBE&feature=plcp

I just shattered my 3ds top screen(shut my 3ds really hard) because I lost my first online match in 3 or 4 days. To someone who's rating was a 2050 or something low like that. Luckily I have a screen protector for it.

completing the beginner cups is so easy, i usually win each rally, at the most its like 60-15 after each rally (im not good with the tennis terms D; ), but the harder cups gives me more of a competition.

Oh my, aren't we sarcastic.

I guess I'd better hand in my gaming elite membership card because I don't fly through games without stumbling at all, at any point.

There I was thinking that rubberbanding and getting screwed out of a three star victory at the last moment was just bad luck, but no, it turns out it was my own incompetence holding me back.

Oh wise and powerful master of Mario Kart, I bow down to your gaming superiority! Please instruct me in the ways of defeating my opponents first time with no losses and set backs at all ever! I beg of you!

I managed to get 701 on Galaxy Rally today(8000 odd coins!), it is the only minigame I'm good at, I seemed to struggle quite badly with all the others and actually only very recently unlocked Dry Bowser on the Ink challenge minigame.

On the subject of lag, it seems to be 50/50 with me. Sometimes I can play online matches very smoothly with no lag, other times it's like playing the game in very slow motion. It all depends really.

If you seriously think Mario Kart 7 is difficult, you must never play retro games.

To prevent getting hit by a blue shell just before the finish line, you need to sandbag earlier and get a mushroom. This also works great online. It's one of the main things I do actually. The biggest problem with being good at Mario Kart is the handicap item system, so why not use it to your advantage?

Also practice learning other ways to dodge red shells, such as going places they can't, or making them run into walls, course objects or other items on the track. This helps you hold onto your mushroom.

Of course you could lose your mushroom if someone gets lightning. If you are up against a blue shell without your mushroom, you should do whatever you can to minimize the damage, such as falling off the track with correct timing.

I'm pretty sure Tekka clearly implied he was good at mario kart and he didn't come to a mario tennis thread to get tips on a mario kart game that he doesn't need help on.

Sweet Jesus. You're completely missing the point, and not recognizing obvious sarcasm.

Screw ups happen. They often result in emotional reactions such as swearing.

The average forum goers capacity for douchebaggery never ceases to amaze me.

The amazing things that happen by one stupid post I make. (Of course, if any other member posted it instead of me, noone'd care, and it'd probably get, like, 8 likes.)
Let's just stick to Pok?mon. We get along better if we talk about that.

Haha, it's all good. You can rest easy, anyone who challenges my pride would receive the same response. :P

I should start using more smiley faces to reassure people that I'm not angry with them.

does the lag depend on the other persons connection or just your own?
'cos sometimes i get a perfect game, no lag, and other times it freezes about every 2 seconds for a bit... so mines 50/50 too

Added after 2 Hours 45 minutes:

and can you unlock koopas or are they just in the background?

It mostly depends on the other person's(for me at least). I have perfect connection in my house. And you cannot unlock koopas.

Firstly LOL at everyone raging!

But secondly it would be awesome if Paratroopa somehow made an appearance in MTO. Also what are the costumes for the street pass ones? I unfortunately don't run into many gamers where I go and want to know whether I should hit the one gaming convention to hit sydney every year just to unlock them

Hey guys! I can finally seriously join you guys in the official forums for Mario Tennis Open because I got the game yesterday
Just a question about the game: How do you aim without the gyro-control on? I like to play with the circle pad and not the gyro control because I really don't want to tilt it around while walking and eating and stuff. I play this game not only at home, but also when I leave the house sometimes...

Please, someone answer my question. It could really improve the way I aim the ball in the galaxy rally, old super Mario, the ring game, ink game, and just in general in Mario Tennis Open!

If you use gyro you have to tilt to aim the ball as far as I'm aware.

I'm an old school player so I stick to classic controls for most games, and this game is no exception.

If you've played all the old games you should know the mechanics of it. All the special games aren't that hard. But here are a few general tips

Ring shot: Get the multiplier from hitting the ball through more than one ring, use a variety of Lob (A -> B) and drop shot (B -> A) to get the obviously high or short rings.

Ink Showdown: Just aim away from the CPU. Try to anticipate the odd drop shot and just get on the ball early and not be lunging for it. Also try to hit the ink balls.

Galaxy Rally: Excellent for coin farming. Again multipliers, and just find the sweet spot shots. When I use yoshi (green with a star) I always use slice (back half of court) and drop shots (front half of court). Reason being if you accidentally go for the slice and need a short ball just press the A button and it changes to a drop shot.

General Tips: Have a good/unpredictable serve.
Anticipate (don't over anticipate) shots online. Good positioning is your best friend.
Mix up your shot bag and fake out chance shots. You can tell when someone is going for a chance shot because it lights up. My general tactic is either last minute chance shot use (i.e charge a topspin shot in a blue chance shot circle, then last minute spam B) or the opposite (i.e charge a slice shot in a blue chance circle then last minute spam A OR not spam A and just press A once for the drop shot).

Basically online play is about mind games.
Computer play is about predictability and exploiting computer patterns.
Special Games trial and error and just know when to use what shot.

also NEVER use simple shots online

I also wish that Nintendo had some way of matching people up who are around the same skill level. It annoys me when I play against someone who's skill rating is 2700 and then next match 1940...

What I find annoying is how you can still lose points from your rating even if you win a match. I got beat a few times in a row online and my rating plummeted, then I eventually win a match and what do I get for my troubles? -8 points.... Fuuuuuuuuuuu!

I just spent ages unlocking the Luma costume and the luma racket and that combination sucks! Unless I'm missing something here... I just can't seem to hit any winners because of the low power stat that combo has? anyone else play with the luma costume on their mii?

I don't like the Luma Costume and Racket combo as well.
Luma is focused on spin, speed and agility, however, lacks power.

For the actual Luma Character, it works because he/she is technical type, so even lacking strenght, it's possible to rally with very extreme angles that can bring hell to the opponent, especially closer to the net (almost impossible to get even for speed characters), but Miis aren't, their aiming/angles are always of an all around character. A Power setup will work better, especially with some spin included.

I experimented a bit and found that the Luma costume with the all star racket is slightly better, although underwhelming. haha

I personally find the mario bee costume and blooper racket work well. It's just annoying because I spent so long on getting the Luma costume haha!

Is there any racket that might go well with the luma costume for mii?

If you want power don't use the luma costume. Simple. With that being said it is possible to win with little power and spin, it's just harder. Just spread your opponent more by getting on top of the ball sooner giving you more time to charge a shot/psyche out your opponent. Otherwise just use a set up your comfortable with. You should be able to win with any gear setup, but obviously you'll be disadvantaged at times depending on what gear you have.

I use the petey P Setup. Most people can't beat me unless they have the power of lag, or the stupid curve across the map technique.

Or if they're me :3 :P XD But I've been sucking lately\


Also, the guy who's Mii is Marc with over 100000 points is so annoying. I always end up playing him and I always lose, but luckily tonight I beat him twice in a row. I play him every(expletive)day at least 5 times.

I recently picked this one up... Which task did you have to do to get the Tanooki suit? Tanooki was always my favorite in SM3DL so it should do me some good in MTO.
Is it a star character task or a streetpass, etc task?

BIRDO!!! I<3 her! I still play Mario Party 7 for Gamecube, and I have her and Dry Bones unlocked.

Really? I'm sure the different versions have the same stats, but the Tanooki suit for me has a ton of spin, and is not as fast or powerful as the bee costume.

Have a strategy when it gets to the part where it gets rid of multiple platforms. Try to get your strategy to something that if you hit a certain area, another certain area pops back up.

my problem is i make a lob shot to make it go to one of the back panels and it ends up practically just on the white bit, and it says it missed. if it wasnt for that i'd be higher than 53.

i will try again later. what do you mean getting a certain area to pop back up?

When you get to the part where it gets rid of two panels, when you hit a panel thats still there, a black one comes back up.

For me personally I always try and keep my character on the bottom edge of the black hole you can see under the court(basically the middle of the court) and then just spam flat shots and drop shots, those are the only two shots I ever use on Galaxy Rally. My record so far is 701.

I've heard alot of people like to use slice shots(B) so that if they make a mistake and slice it when a drop shot is needed, you can just press A which immediately turns it into a drop shot, but I've tried it a few times and don't really like that method.

i got my 1st and only streetpass so far today with a person that has mto. i beat him in a regular tiebraker match and didnt get that high in ring shot =/
are the regular matches against the people you meet in streetpass usually easy? or does it depend on their online rating or how good they usually are or something?

and i tried again today, i got past my previous high score on galaxy rally of 53 up to 54 -_-

Added after 1 3 minutes:

i managed to get 64 now. i think im starting to make a strategy.
is there any specific technique to get the panels to where you want them or is it all random?

Added after 13 minutes:

79 im getting there! n.n

Hmm? Tanooki suit? Luma? I guess I thought I unlocked everybody when I completed all the tournaments....then again I never received anyone when I did ^_^'

I remembered I was facing dry bowser online and these thoughts went into my mind:

a) Iwata or a special member of nintendo I am facing against(Lol Reggie)

b) Bowser came back from the dead after I defeated him in many past games.......

It depends on your winning streak.
When you begin to get close to 20 wins in a row it begins to get extremely hard.

My streak right now is 50+ and it's hell. Seems like ACE level cpu.

Hint: If you lose, imediately hit "home" and close the game before the gameplay screen fades into the results screen to prevent the game from saving.
You can't redo that streetpass match again, but at least you won't lose your winning streak (you unlock two costumes when it hits 10 and 20).

You unlock characters in the minigames. Luma for Galaxy Rally, Baby Mario for Super Mario Tennis, Dry Bowser for Ink Showdown and Baby Peach for Ring Shot (You have to complete the 3rd level for each)

For any Europe players, Red Yoshi became available via QR code yesterday. He's the technique type.

The real challenge and replay meat of this game is unlocking all the Mii's full costumes, though...

Some are really challenging, while others will take very long, and so on.

Is there a power yoshi? So far I've only seen/got (I'm Australia region)

-black allround
-white tricky
-blue speed (kinda pointless)
-red technique

Also does anyone reckon more characters will be released, like metal mario, via QR code?

Yellow Yoshi is the power one, but he hasn't been released yet. There will be a light blue one(speed) and a pink one(technique) as well. For some reason there won't be a defense type Yoshi which I think is kind of a waste.

Do you have to buy the light blue and black Yoshi? On the website it says "will be released in stores". I'm not paying for a character

Yellow yoshi IS out....in America. The only one not out in America in the White one.
