Mario Tennis Aces
Last week, Roxanne from Nintendo Treehouse shared some screenshots and details about Mario Tennis Aces, on the Nintendo Treehouse Log. This first blog post is about two types of characters you can find in the game: the All-Around and Technical characters.
- All-Around: they have well-rounded characteristics, and no glaring weaknesses, which is why they’re great for beginners. They have solid shots and good speed.
- Luigi: slightly weaker shots than Mario, but great at volleys, and a force to be reckoned with up at the net.
- Technical: they have excellent ball control, and allow you to easily hit to the far corners of the court. They also have great footwork. Their Zone Shots and Special Shots are not as fast as those of some other types.
Finally, here’s the screenshots:
Mario Tennis Aces (Switch) comes out on June 22nd worldwide.
Super Mario Odyssey
Today, Nintendo shared the latest piece of concept-art for Super Mario Odyssey, which shows Goombas wearing various hats. They came up with various hat designs, while imagining how they would work in-game. Even the Goombas are travelling all around the world, it seems!
