Hey all. Sorry I've been on a hiatus without any notice!


Anyway, I have returned! *cricket chirping*


For a long time, Mario Tennis Aces has been my most anticipated game of the summer. Just confused as to how folks are reviewing the game with a grade/score when there's supposedly no online functionality until the day one patch!


Still, I loved the online stress test to the servers, and would love to play with some NWR friends!

I’m interested in Mario Tennis Aces though I’ve opted for a price drop or sale. I don’t have the time or brain space to take on another game at the moment.

Welcome back!

I'm a goofball who takes on, like, 80 games at once. Okay, that might be a BIT of an overexaggeration, but...


And thanks! :D

Phil welcome back! I played Lego City while you were gone! Didn't like it as much as you did, sadly.
I've been trying to put off buying a Switch, but Aces is the first real system-seller for me besides Mario Odyssey. I tried to be smart compromise by getting Mario Tennis Ultra Smash on Wii U in the meantime for 10$

May have bamboozled myself.

Hey Steefosaurus! Glad to read you played LEGO City! We can still be friends even though you didn't like it as much, I guess...


Do you have Mario Tennis Open for the 3DS? I've been wanting to play that with some people--even asked on ERA and got no response!

I enjoyed the demo and I like the new mechanics. I'll probably grab the game at sometime down the road.

Out of curiosity, what constitutes a spoiler for a tennis game?

Online is apparently stable in the final version of Mario Tennis Aces. Hooray!


Let's start adding Switch friend codes, if we haven't been friends already!

I got the joke and thought it was a fun callback.

I picked up on that, hee hee, but I thought you still meant not wanting spoilers. Maybe something like unlockables counts?

Hmm... Maybe story mode-related stuff like bosses, but that would be the extent of spoilers. And even then, I'm not too concerned about that.  :D


Did anyone else pick this game up? Would love to play with some NWR users!

I've bought this at launch and have been having a great time online. The single player is a bit of a dud, but it's a seriously good game online.

Although I will say Bowser Jr. and to a lesser extent Waluigi almost ruin this game. Their reach and defensive capabilities greatly improve their opportunity to get an energy advantage and once that happens it's hard to come back from. I've started just refusing games with either of those characters now.

I'm just so disappointed with this game. I can't believe this was my most anticipated game of the summer. Between the imbalanced characters, the way you can just perform trick shots easily to increase your meter with no real penalty, and the lackluster content, I feel like I wasted $60. Will not be paying for Nintendo's online this September if this is how pathetic its games with be online offering-wise.

I really think you're overreacting. I'm having a great time with the online. Any lag issues that were present in the demo have been radically improved. In fact, I can't think of a game or a point I've lost due to lag.

Balancing is an issue, but the recent patch notes for the July tournament suggest it'll be something they're working on. Trick shots are hardly OP, there's a massive risk v reward. If people are beating you by performing trick shots and gaining energy consistently it just means you're playing too predictably.

Admittedly there's not a lot options with online, but what is there is fantastic and it's absolutely the online tournament mode where this game shines.
