Added hosted matches

  • Added Hosted Match mode, which allows players to easily compete with each other in single matches via LAN Play or Online Play.

    • A LAN cable (sold separately) is required for LAN Play.

    • A LAN cable (sold separately) is required for LAN Play.
    • All participants must determine the date and time, the rules of the game and the course of the game between them before the actual match.
  • After all three participants are ready, the moderator will control the various settings and the course of the game.
  • The host screen will be split left and right, showing both P1 and P2 play. (Player screens will not be divided.) Pressing the arrow buttons during a match will change the host screen: the Up button to split the screen, the left button for the P1 screen and the right button for the P2 screen.
  • The characters available for the game depend on the respective course of the game (data storage) in each system.
  • All courts will be available to play regardless of the course of the game in each system.
  • The host controls whether the first one to serve is random, P1 or P2.
