Posted on June 7, 2018

We’re two weeks away from the June 22 release date of Mario Tennis Aces on the Nintendo Switch! Nintendo has released a new trailer featuring the number 1 ranked tennis star in the world, Rafael Nadal. He is seen going head-to-head with video game’s number 1 icon, Mario! Take a look at the trailer below along with the official press release, both which highlight a new Challenge feature!

Rafael Nadal has competed against some of the best tennis players in the world, but does he have the skills to take on one of the best players from the Mushroom Kingdom? In a newly released trailer for the Mario Tennis Aces game, launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on June 22, Rafael Nadal takes on Mario in a tennis showdown for the ages. Who will come out on top? Check out the new trailer to find out!

In Mario Tennis Aces, you can unleash an arsenal of shots and strategies in tennis battles with friends, family and fan-favorite Mushroom Kingdom characters, including some characters that have never been playable in a tennis game before, like Chain Chomp. Whether playing with others locally* or online**, a variety of competitive game modes await that can be played anytime, anywhere!

With Swing Mode, players can work up a sweat with intuitive motion controls to play a variety of different shots across the court, or enjoy more traditional control set-ups in a variety of other modes. Not happy with the umpire’s call? Contest the decision with the new Challenge feature, exclusive to Swing Mode, to see a replay of the shot and see if it was in or out.

For the first time in years, a single-player story mode returns to a Mario Tennis game. In Adventure mode, help Mario save Luigi from the evil legendary racket by embarking on a journey filled with challenging missions and boss battles. This mode is a great way to learn and practice new tennis techniques, including the new Zone Shot, a super-fast move that can be aimed in first person.

Mario Tennis Aces launches for Nintendo Switch on June 22 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. For more information about the game, visit http://mariotennis.nintendo.com/aces/
