If you haven’t already, it’s time to grab your tennis racket and head to the court — the virtual court that is. Nintendo is giving Switch owners the chance to try a free online demo of Mario Tennis Aces this weekend. The demo will be available from April 26 – 28. Alongside this demo, players will also have the chance to try out Nintendo’s online service as well. The trial is a limited 7-day window.

So, if you’ve been sitting on the fence about either of these two products — now is your chance to get some hands-on time with the both of them and see if they’re right for you. My bet is that Nintendo hopes they are, which is why they’re offering the limited trial periods.
About Mario Tennis Aces
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Mario Tennis isn’t a new concept. The Italian plumber is no stranger to the tennis court. Mario Tennis Aces brings many characters from the Mushroom Kingdom together to square off on the court. Games can be played in singles or doubles. Players can strategize by using any number of basic or trick shot actions. The Joy-Con controller can even be used as a racket for motion control. Mario Tennis Aces also features an adventure mode that allows players to thwack their way through a multitude of objectives and boss battles.
Nintendo has been adding content to the game since it’s release. Most recently, Dry Bones was announced as a new addition to the game. The game received relatively positive praise from critics. Here at Nintendo Enthusiast, we felt that Mario Tennis Aces featured “fun gameplay” with a “large roster,” but the game lacked customization options. Regardless of what anyone thought, the game is now free for a limited time so you can form your own opinion!
