New Gameplay Today – Mario Tennis Aces

by Jeff Cork on Jun 22, 2018 at 03:30 PM

Mario Tennis Aces lets friends play friendly games of tennis in a variety of friendly courts across the Mushroom Kingdom. Kyle and I aren't friends, however. I think he is bad, so we decided to settle our differences in a best-of-three series. Leo was the arbiter of the event, doling out real-world consequences to the loser.

To keep things fair, we enabled random character and court selection, so we wouldn't be tempted to rely on characters like Toad, who is good and fast and helps players win. Instead, Kyle and I could potentially be stuck with broken characters like Daisy or Boo, who are designed to lose and prevent players from winning even though they are better at the game. I don't want to spoil the outcome of this series, so I'll just leave it at that.

Mario Tennis Aces is out today on Nintendo Switch. You can read our review right here.
