Mario Tennis Aces is a tennis video game and the eighth installment in the Mario Tennis series that was released for Nintendo Switch in 2018.


Nintendo website

A new Mario Tennis game is bringing a new level of skill and competition to Nintendo Switch. Mario steps onto the court in classy tennis garb for intense rallies against a variety of characters in full-blown tennis battles. 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. And this time the game adds the first story mode since the Mario Tennis game on Game Boy Advance, offering a new flavor of tennis gameplay, with a variety of missions, boss battles and more.


The tennis is similar to previous Mario Tennis games, notably Mario Tennis Open and Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash.[1]

Mario Tennis Aces features a story mode, the first game in the series to do so since Mario Tennis: Power Tour, in which the player must complete various challenges on an island.[1]

The Mario Tennis Aces Pre-Launch Online Tournament was originally announced during the Nintendo Direct on March 8, 2018. The software for the demo was released on May 24, and ran from June 1 to June 3, 2018. The demo requires 394 MB of space to download.

The demo features four options for play. Online Tournament allows players to compete against others online in standard rules; players will be awarded points based on their performance in matches, and full rankings will be posted on the official website after the tournament is over. Players can also practice against computer players. Also available is the option to review the tutorial, and adjust various settings. Finally, the player can go to the full game's Nintendo eShop page to preorder and check out more information. Players can play as Mario, Peach, Yoshi, and Bowser by default, and can unlock the ability to play as Waluigi, Rosalina, Spike, Chain Chomp, and Toad by earning points. Participants in the online tournament will be given Mario's traditional outfit as a costume in the full game.
