From Gamehiker Wiki
|System||Game Boy Color|

The story mode follows a rookie tennis player at the the Royal Tennis Academy who trains under coaches and competes against ranked players in order to become skilled enough to battle the tennis champion, Mario.
Like Mario Golf, this game takes standard tennis gameplay and adds RPG elements. This is in the Mario Tour mode, where the player chooses a player character and can freely navigate the school between matches. The player character gains experience from matches which is used to boost statistics. There is also Exhibition Mode for casual single matches, as well as a linked game where two players can play against each other. The game also contains a set of minigames which feature the Mario characters.
It is compatible with the Transfer Pak, which can connect the game to its Nintendo 64 counterpart. This can temporarily transfer characters from the Game Boy Color game to the N64 game, and it will also unlock more characters and minigames for the handheld game.
