Mario Tennis Aces is an upcoming sports game in the Mario Tennis series for Nintendo Switch set to release in spring 2018. It is the eighth installment in the series and will be the first Mario Tennis series game since Mario Tennis: Power Tour on the Game Boy Advance to feature a Story Mode.[2] The game was first announced via a Nintendo Direct Mini presentation on January 11, 2018 (EST).


The base gameplay appears similar to that of Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, featuring different types of shots. Characters appear to have stamina or health bars.[2] Some shots, such as the Ultra Smash, will be able to break rackets.[2]

The game also features a story mode set on an island.
