Nintendo announced during its Nintendo Direct Mini that a new entry in the Mario Tennis series, Mario Tennis Aces, is coming to Nintendo Switch.
“A new Mario Tennis game is bringing a new level of skill and competition to Nintendo Switch,” Nintendo said. “Mario steps onto the court in classy tennis garb for intense rallies against a variety of characters in full-blown tennis battles. New wrinkles in tennis gameplay will challenge your ability to read an opponent’s position and stroke to determine which shot will give you the advantage.”
The upcoming entry will be the first game in the series since Mario Tennis on the Game Boy Advance to feature a story mode, which will offer players “a variety of missions and boss battles.”
Mario Tennis Aces will be available on Nintendo Switch in spring 2018.
