Smash Tennis controls work similar to other tennis games and especially Namco’s previous tennis game World Court Tennis: the player moves the athlete over the court and presses buttons with the correct timing in order to win the match. This time there is no story mode, but a tournament mode instead. Here the goal is to win the Grand Slam by playing various tournament matches. However. a match only has a single set. There are 20 athletes (both male and female) to choose from which have different advantages and drawbacks.
Shadow of the Ninja story is set in 2029, the evil Emperor Garuda has taken over the United States of America, building a stronghold in the middle of the nation’s “largest city”. To stop Garuda and avenge the innocent lives that were lost in his reign, two ninja masters from the Iga clan, Lord Hayate and Lady Kaede, are sent to infiltrate the dictator’s well-guarded stronghold and kill him.
