Mario Tennis Aces doesn’t officially debut until the 22nd of June, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting excited about it. Get pumped everyone, because there is a Mario Tennis Aces demo on the way. And we hear it’s going to be completely ace! Yeah, we said it.
The demo will be a time-limited one that’s said to come out on June 1st to June 3rd, which gives players one whole weekend to try out the game and see if its the Mario game for them. Not only that, but they’ll also be helping Nintendo test the bandwidth of their online services too.
But that isn’t even the best part, there will even be the chance for players to take part in an online tournament.

If you’re not too sure about playing with others, there is an offline option so you can practice your Trick Shots by yourself. The demo will initially let players play as Mario, Peach, Yoshi and Bowser, but if you play like the pro we all know you are then five extra characters will be able to be unlocked during the weekend.
If you need more reason to play during that weekend in June, players who try out the demo will get a classic Mario outfit unlocked if they purchase the full game. And while there has been no real confirmation on what the prize will be if you win the tournament, we’d be lying if we said that entering would be a bad idea.
The tournament will commence from 6 PM PT to 12 PM PT, so if you want to enter make sure you know which time suits where you’re living and get swinging!
