Mario Tennis Aces release date announced

Mario Tennis Aces release date announced

The dust has barely settled on that Nintendo Direct and the announcement for Mario Tennis Aces' release date - 22nd June, don't you know - and now we've got another tennis star strolling out onto the centre court of Nintendo Switch. Zone shots are a way to slow down time to aim before you shoot, and are used by depleting your character's special meter. As we approach the release date, Nintendo will have a pre-launch online tournament where you can experience 1v1 online tournaments before its release.

In addition to this, Mario Tennis Aces supports up to four players in online gameplay. However, the Zone Shot can be blocked so it won't automatically damage a racket. Another ability is Zone Speed, which works like bullet time, allowing you to get to balls you wouldn't normally be able to reach. Taking a page from the Wii Sports playbook - a special motion control mode allows you to use the Joy-Cons like a real tennis racket - with Swing Mode it's time to go back to 2006 all over again! Not only that there will be online multiplayer tourneys, special outfits, and characters, and of course there will be a story mode. More characters will be available with free updates.

Mario Tennis Aces releases on June 22, 2018 for Nintendo Switch. In addition, an ARMS open invitational tournament will be held in the U.S. and Canada. Also, on March 31st, there will be a global "test punch", a demo event which will last for three days. There will be a preliminary round between March 8th and March 18th. No release date was announced, but late May would make sense.

Sequel to the cult classics, No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2 on the Nintendo Wii sees a release on the Nintendo Switch.
