Mario Tennis Aces - new trailer features tennis star Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal has competed against some of the best tennis players in the world, but does he have the skills to take on one of the best players from the Mushroom Kingdom? In a newly released trailer for the Mario Tennis Aces game, launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on June 22, Rafael Nadal takes on Mario in a tennis showdown for the ages. Who will come out on top? Check out the new trailer to find out!

In Mario Tennis Aces, you can unleash an arsenal of shots and strategies in tennis battles with friends, family and fan-favorite Mushroom Kingdom characters, including some characters that have never been playable in a tennis game before, like Chain Chomp. Whether playing with others locally* or online**, a variety of competitive game modes await that can be played anytime, anywhere!

With Swing Mode, players can work up a sweat with intuitive motion controls to play a variety of different shots across the court, or enjoy more traditional control set-ups in a variety of other modes. Not happy with the umpire’s call? Contest the decision with the new Challenge feature, exclusive to Swing Mode, to see a replay of the shot and see if it was in or out.

For the first time in years, a single-player story mode returns to a Mario Tennis game. In Adventure mode, help Mario save Luigi from the evil legendary racket by embarking on a journey filled with challenging missions and boss battles. This mode is a great way to learn and practice new tennis techniques, including the new Zone Shot, a super-fast move that can be aimed in first person.

Mario Tennis Aces launches for Nintendo Switch on June 22 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. For more information about the game, visit http://mariotennis.nintendo.com/aces/.

*Additional accessories may be required for multiplayer mode and are sold separately.

**Nintendo Account is required. Online services and features, including online play, are free until the paid Nintendo Switch Online Service launches in September.

Amazing trailer.

Gorgeous CGi, plenty of gameplay footage, good showing of the special moves, that clever signing at the end. Really liking this commercial.

This game will do great. It feels to me that Nintendo really want all of their Mario spinoffs to be seen as a huge deal now, rather than a 'decent release filler', and if this means Mario Party and the other Sports games will get the same treatment, I have high hopes for basically every Mario game the Switch will get.

Can't wait!

Rafa is a Yoshi main confirmed.

Wait, is that decision challenging thing in the game? That would be really cool.
