Mario Tennis Aces – Open Beta (Switch)

Mario Tennis Aces is hosting a three day pre-launch Beta tennis tournament, allowing you to try out nine characters in online and single player matches and unlock Mario’s classic outfit in the full game as a reward!

The Mario Tennis Aces Beta gives players access to five characters and five mystery unlockable ones. The five unlocked at the start are Mario, Peach, Yoshi and Bowser, while the five unlockable ones will no doubt be selected from the rest of the roster (Wario, Waluigi, Daisy, Rosalina, Boo, Bowser Jr., Chain Chomp, Toad, Toadette and Donkey Kong.)

Mario Tennis Aces adds some interesting strategic elements to the classic game of tennis, with players able to carry out “Zone Shots” which can damage rackets and cause players to forfeit the game. However, players can counter Zone Shots by hitting the ball with perfect timing to pull off a block. It also features “Zone Speed” which allows players to temporarily slow down the game, while their character still moves at normal speed, allowing them to reach tricky shots. Both these Zone abilities require energy to perform, which is earned by pulling off trick-shots during play.

It’s a fun game, with lots of familiar faces and some interesting twists on the classic game of tennis. The Beta is live until 11:59 pm GMT June 3rd, see you in the court!
