Mario Tennis Aces releases June 22 with pre-release tournament

The Switch's Mario Tennis RPG will arrive this summer with an online tournament.

Mario Tennis Aces will release on June 22, letting you smash and slice your way through Nintendo's latest sports RPG.

Today's Nintendo Direct revealed that there will also be a pre-release online tournament for the game, allowing you to go 1-on-1 against other complete noobs to get your name on the world circuit before the game is even out.

The game will feature an energy system for smashes and defensive speed boosts or blocking opponent smashes. So you'll have to be careful about when you use your energy (kind of like in actual sports).

We'll have more about that pre-release online tournament whenever they give us more details.
