It reminds me of Mario Sports Mix: each character has a lot of individuality but the character roster as a whole is severely lacking and could use more characters.
But they had their own special shots..  :-\

Todays big games typically weigh in at tens of GB Destiny, for example, now requires 60 GB to install, and thats without the expansions.

Nintendos upcoming Wii U Mario game, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, requires nowhere near that amount. The game will requires just 888 MB of storage.

Thats not a typo: Mario Tennis weighs in at just 888 Megabytes. Weve seen day-one patches that are larger than that (ahem, Black Ops 3, 3000 MB).

Honestly, its a bit worrying that the game is that small, since it makes one wonder: just how much content can they squeeze into 888 MB?

By comparison, Mario Kart 8 requires over 6 GB, and Super Smash Bros takes up over 15 GB.

So you people think more GB means more content? Haha, no. Splatoon had like 1.4 at launch and continuously rolled with the updates. It just means that Nintendo are experts at compressing data. That's why it doesn't take up as much like those from PS4 and Xbox One.

Just because a game's file size is small doesn't mean there doesn't seem to be any heavy content.

One reason why Smash is 15 GB isn't because there's lots of content, it just means there's a heavy load of music tracks within. Data for everything else is very small.

I think a lot of people just don't care about game sizes anymore. 888 MB doesn't confirm or deny a lack of content. Besides, how much content can a Tennis game have? Mario Kart had like, forty tracks or something, and Smash has tons of stages and characters. Unless there's forty or something stadiums I don't see why it would be that big.

Best to make games as small to download as possible, it would mean far faster download times

Though Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is very very light on content, so I think it just reinforces our beliefs on light the game is.

Found some new artwork while browsing for (meh) reviews, on GameInformer

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Also bigger versions of Bowser Jr. and Sprixie Princess, though they don't have their alphas

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Strangely, still no Bowser artwork, same with Dry Bowser. Boo and DK also lack artwork.

"how much content can a Tennis game have?"

Um, a lot. Actually. Some have really in-depth campaigns, mini-games, and a lot of stuff to do. Virtua Tennis for example.
Hit me up on twitter.
