Mario Tennis Aces Pre-Launch Tournament Announced, Story Trailer Revealed

We'll keep you posted as to whether or not this online tournament will be coming to the USA, but for now, head down to the comments section and let us know if you're excited for Mario Tennis Aces!

Eager to try out the Nintendo Switch's next big original title, Mario Tennis Aces? The first trailer is an introduction to Mario Tennis Aces' story, while the second, longer trailer provides a more detailed overview of the game (the video is in Japanese, but it's easy enough to follow along). Of course, Mario Tennis Aces will have to contend with Super Smash Bros, which will undoubtedly be the star of Nintendo's press conference.

Mario will set out on an adventure through the island taking on various challenges and bosses.

The prize which will be given to everyone who plays at least one match will be "Overalls Mario", the classic Mario outfit that's drawn from his platforming games, rather than the properly dressed tennis Mario we're otherwise treated to in this game. See you on the court!
