Mario Tennis Aces launches for Nintendo Switch in June

Direct Leaks: Japanese retailer reveals Mario Tennis Aces characters, release dates and more

Speaking in the latest Nintendo Direct broadcast last night, the Kyoto-based hardware giant confirmed that Mazza's latest tennis outing will feature more than 15 playable characters, including Mario (duh), Donkey Kong, Waluigi, plus some new faces.

More details will be revealed later today during the Nintendo Direct special, but June 22 seems like a flawless release date for the game. The previous Mario Tennis game, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, launched in November 2015 on Wii U. Nintendo unveiled Mario Tennis Aces during a surprise Nintendo Direct Mini video in January. The all new "Zone Shot" lets you pinpoint certain shots with motion controls, even being able to break the other player's racket - ending them with an instant KO.

The page, which has since been removed, listed the game for a June 22nd release in Japan. It will retail in Australia for $79.95 AUD.

Still not sold on Mario Tennis Aces? Participating in these online tournaments will reward you with special in-game outfits and additional characters.

Also for older video gamers, Crash Bandicoot N.sane Trilogy, is a remake of all three Crash Bandicoot originals for the PlayStation, which will be released July 10th.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition get a release date. Frequent tournaments will be held, so you will never be short of some online fun. This game will launch in 2018. Callie will also appear in the Octo Canyon if certain conditions are met. This expansion adds a whole new single player story, centred around an Octoling called Agent 8. After playing the expansion, you can play as octolings.

The expansion is coming in Summer of 2018. In addition, Super Smash Bros. will be coming to the Switch as well sometime in 2018.
