Mario Tennis Aces first launched on the Nintendo Switch over a year ago on June 21, 2018. However, Nintendo is not finished with this Mario sports title yet. As previously reported, for a limited time Nintendo Switch Online members will have the chance to play the game for free with the Mario Tennis Aces Game Trial.
This time, players are getting a much better offer than the free demo from April because it includes all of Tennis Aces. In a bit of a reversal, when the free demo was available in April, it came with a seven-day trial of the Nintendo Switch Online Service.
Details of the Mario Tennis Aces Game Trial
The Mario Tennis Aces Game Trial is available now and will last until 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 13. This will give players nearly a full week to play through the game before deciding if they should purchase it. Some players may take on the challenge to see how much of the game they can finish in one week.
Players who do want to buy and keep the game can do so at a discounted price as well. Beginning now, Tennis Aces is available on the Nintendo Switch eShop at a 30 percent discount. This special discount will last until 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 20. Therefore, players have another week after the Mario Tennis Aces Game Trial ends to buy it with a special deal. A player’s progress from the Game Trial will even transfer over to the permanent game!
Mario Tennis Aces is the first of multiple free Game Trials that will be coming for Nintendo Switch Online users. Nintendo has already confirmed a Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Game Trial coming in the future. Every Game Trial will allow players to transfer save data into the full game should they choose to buy it. Hopefully this is the beginning of a long string of subscriber benefits for Nintendo Switch Online Service users!
