Game Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchJun 22, 2018

Developer: Camelot

Publisher: Nintendo

Genre: Sports

A brand new Mario Tennis game is bringing a new level of skill and competition to Nintendo Switch: Mario Tennis Aces!

Mario steps onto the court in classy tennis garb for intense rallies against a variety of characters in full-blown tennis battles. There are more than 15 playable characters, each with their own distinct characteristics!

New wrinkles in tennis gameplay will challenge your ability to read an opponent’s position and stroke to determine which shot will give you the advantage. The game offers a refined approach to tennis gameplay, focusing on deep strategic payoffs, and non-stop, split-second strategies.

And this time the game adds the first story mode since the Mario Tennis: Power Tour game on Game Boy Advance, offering a new flavour of tennis gameplay, with a variety of missions, boss battles and more.

The varied play styles of the Nintendo Switch system allow up to four players to step onto the court together – anytime, anywhere!

Once you connect online, you can play a match with your friends or other players. Events and online tournaments will be held frequently, allowing you to compete against other players.

There’s also Swing mode, which allows you to use your Joy-Con like a tennis racket. This mode is perfect when you want to play the game casually with your friends and family, or just to get your body moving.

Mario Tennis looks back to its glory with this fun - if a little fuzzy and fiddly - take on tennis.

Probably the best Mario Tennis game since the N64 era, but the trick shots can still frustrate and the story campaign is a disappointment.

A bizarre coming together of Smash Bros. and Mario Tennis that strangely works, even if the Adventure mode occasionally frustrates.
