Alongside the date, Nintendo announced that before June, a Pre-Launch Online Tournament will take place. More details will come in the future.
Aces was announced back in January during a Nintendo Direct Mini. Its the 8th entry in Nintendo’s sports franchise, which began back back in 2000 with Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64. Aces will be the first Mario Tennis game to feature a Story Mode since Mario Tennis: Power Tour on the Game Boy Advance back in 2005.
Here’s to hoping Mario Tennis Aces fares better than Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, which we gave a 4.8 when it hit on the Wii U back in 2015.
