You can try Mario Tennis Aces early for free

Mario Tennis Aces Mario Tennis Aces Online Tournament Demo set for June 1 to 3 in Japan
Frank Williams | 15 May, 2018, 20:13

Mario Tennis Aces , the next Mario-inspired sports game releasing for Nintendo Switch in June, comes with a twist.

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.

The beta will be free to download from May 25th (but won't be playable until June 1st).

First up today though is a look at the game's adventure mode. "In adventure mode, Mario sets off to rescue him from the Legendary Racket".

He may propose some kind of peace plan (less than a treaty) between North and South Korea that doesn't require denuclearization. At the time this news broke, Pompeo was holding a joint news conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha.

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. With full-blown tennis battles on hazardous courts, varying missions that challenge your skills, and monstrous bosses standing in your way, strategic tennis is at your fingertips. Wario and Waluigi look as though they are being possessed by some sort of ghostly creature in the trailer.

In addition to Luigi getting his hands on what appears to be the Infinity Gauntlet of tennis rackets, the cutscenes also show Wario and Waluigi in some spooky new forms.

The Mario Tennis Aces Pre-Launch Online Tournament will only include four characters at first (Mario, Yoshi, Bowser, and Peach) although you'll be able to unlock a further five unspecified characters.
