Mario Tennis Aces Announced For Nintendo Switch This Spring

Share

SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy brings the all-girl fighting game to the Nintendo Switch in the summer.

Mario Tennis made its debut on the Nintendo 64 (not to be confused with Mario's Tennis on Virtual Boy); its last installment was Wii U title, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash.

During the Nintendo Direct Mini yesterday, a Switch version of The World Ends with You, often acronymed TWEWY, was announced. With numerous Neo Geo ports available on the Switch's eShop, we're more than ready for an official release from Nintendo to scratch that retro itch. "For the millions of people who just received Nintendo systems as gifts, or consumers getting ready to join the growing community of Nintendo Switch owners, Nintendo and our third-party partners have fun new games and content in store at retail or for digital purchase".

Check out the rest of the Nintendo announcements (with groan-worthy narrated clips) at the Direct page. Fe comes to Nintendo Switch February 16.

Nintendo has announced a brand-new Mario Tennis game coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has a release date of May 4th, 2018.

The fact that the game is actually going to feature a story mode is a huge deal.

Aaron Greenberg says that Xbox One recorded its best December ever, outpacing PlayStation 4 sales in December, but Switch did even better, selling more than the Microsoft console and PS4 combined, always limited to the American market.

For fans of fighting games, there is a little something here for you, too.

This game, like several other Switch games, was originally a Wii U title. However, the demand for other streaming apps such as YouTube and Netflix remain prevalent amongst fans, and they're definitely still something we think Nintendo needs to address in 2018.

"Tropical Freeze" is a side-scrolling platformer and it will be available for the Switch on May 4. Aces, meanwhile, finally decked out the Mushroom Kingdom group in proper Tennis garb, and will feature a story mode for the first time since the GBA.

There's also a wealth of Switch games coming in 2018 that are not console-exclusives, so be sure to check out those games as well.
