During the March 8th Nintendo Direct event, it was announced that Mario Tennis Aces will be launching on the Nintendo Switch June 22nd, 2018.
Alongside the release date, Nintendo also announced there would be a pre-launch online tournament that will take place with more detail to come.
You can check out the gameplay trailer below.
Mario Tennis Aces Gameplay
The Nintendo Switch will support up to 4 players and I’m very interested to see how the motion controls of the Switch will help or hinder the play of Super Mario Tennis Aces. In Breath Of The Wild, motion controls really helped make using your bow and arrow intuitive and a treat to use, so I’m curious if it’ll have the same effect on Super Mario Tennis Aces.
According to the gameplay trailer, there will be more than 15 playable characters including Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Peach, Daisy, Rosalina and my personal favorite, Waluigi!
In fact, Mario Tennis for the N64 back in 2000 was the first appearance of Waluigi! And he’s WAAAAA’d into our hearts ever since.
