    Mario Tennis Aces releases next month on the Nintendo Switch but if you can't wait to hit the court with Mario and friends, Nintendo has a fix for you!

    In a press release today, the House of Mario announced that Switch owners can try Mario's next healthy sports game for a limited time in a free online multiplayer demo.

    Starting June 1st, players can get an early taste of the tennis action with the free pre-launch Mario Tennis Aces online tournament!

    Tennis hopefuls will be able to pick from four playable characters – Mario, Peach, Yoshi, and Bowser – and take part in online multiplayer matches in a tournament format. As they advance through the tournament stages, they’ll earn points based on their performance, with five additional characters available to unlock in the demo by gaining enough points.

    On top of the online tournaments, players can also get in some practice by playing one-off single-player tennis battles against a computer-controlled opponent. Whether battling it out online against other players or polishing their skills against the CPU, all participants will be able to unlock a free additional costume of Mario in his traditional dungarees for use in the full game.

    By downloading the free software from Nintendo eShop before the tournament starts, players can look forward to a weekend of fast and fun tennis action, as the tournament is open from 16.00 CEST on Friday 1st June until 00.59 CEST on Monday 4th June.

    Mario Tennis Aces releases on the Nintendo Switch on June 22.

    Nice, I'm hoping this is mostly back to basics for Mario Tennis. Only thing better would've been Mario Strikers IMO.

    Wow, talk about Nintendo stepping up their game after the dork age that was the Wii U, not only with the Switch, which is already a hit, but also with their games as of lately.
