London - 3DS owners can cause a racquet, as Nintendo are launching two games for the eye-popping console with a little help from a hairy-lipped plumber.

Mario Tennis Open is serving a treat on May 25 with a bat 'n' ball game that includes singles and doubles action, as well as a classic tennis game from Super Mario Bros.

With a load of in-built mini-games, Mario Tennis Open is all aces. Meanwhile, Mario is shaping up for another side-scrolling adventure in Super Mario Bros 2, set for release later this year. - Sunday Life
