One of the games that’s most exciting this year for the Nintendo Switch is Mario Tennis Aces. This iteration of the franchise looks like the real deal and Camelot appears to have really put in a ton of work for the brand new Switch game. With completely revamped graphics, new character models and new gameplay mechanics, this one could really be something special. Plus, a single player story mode is included to keep things fresh.
The Nintendo Treehouse Log (blog) updated today with some new screens and details on some of the characters. They cover some of the all-around characters, which include Mario, Luigi, and Daisy. These are the ones to choose when you’re a beginner at the game, since they have no huge weaknesses and their shots and speed are good.
They also show off a few of the technical characters, which currently include Peach and Toadette. It seems like they’re being extra careful to not show off new characters that haven’t already been announced, so don’t be surprised if more get grouped into these categories. Technical players have excellent ball control, can easily hit to the far corners of the court, and have great footwork.
Mario Tennis Aces is on track for a June 22, 2018 release. It will support 4 players local or online and sometime prior before launch Nintendo will run an online stress test that will be free to partake in. We’ll keep you updated!
