Mario Tennis Aces Online Tournament Demo set for June 1 to 3 in Japan

Mario Tennis Aces

Nintendo has announced a new pre-launch online tournament for Mario Tennis Aces.

The online tournament is scheduled to kick off at 10 AM EDT/3 PM BST on June 1 and wrap up at 6:59 PM EDT/11:59 PM BST on June 3, giving you what is essentially a full weekend to play around with Mario Tennis Aces and figure out if you like it. You can check out the details in the short video below. The goal of the online tournament is to get players from across Japan to try out its tennis battles that come with new aimed shots and acceleration features.

Are you going to participate in this event and get the costume?

Nintendo also released an overview trailer for Mario Tennis Aces, showing off more of the racquet break-ability as well as the story mode (which looks incredibly extensive).

First up today though is a look at the game's adventure mode. While it was revealed and shown off extensively back in March, there are actually a few new things here. Currently, there are 15 confirmed characters: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Daisy, Wario, Waluigi, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Boo, Toad, Toadette, Rosalina and Chain Chomp. It's, of course, up to Mario to bail out his brother and complete several tennis-related challenges.

Mario Tennis Aces gives players a level-up system and some strategic RPG elements like equipping different tennis rackets. While it doesn't look almost as deep as it possibly could be, it's still good to see that there are options at the very least.
