Nintendo news (April 27): Mario Tennis Aces / Yoiko x Indies

Today’s Nintendo news: Special Online Demo for Mario Tennis Aces, but also…

  • Yoiko x Indies
  • BoxBoy! + BoxGirl!
  • Fire Emblem Fates

Mario Tennis Aces

This week, a special demo for Mario Tennis Aces went live. It can be downloaded directly from the Nintendo eShop, or from the official Nintendo website. Just like the one for Splatoon 2 a few weeks ago, it’s only playable during a limited number of days:

  • North America: April 26th to April 28th
  • Europe: April 26th to May 3rd

The demo offers several game modes, and even some bonuses to transfer to the full version of the game such as:

  • a classic overalls look for Mario, unlocked by playing one match in the Online Tournament
  • blue, red, and yellow Yoshi, unlocked by getting points in the Co-op Challenge Mode

And just like the special demo for Splatoon 2, this one also nets you a seven-day free trial for Nintendo Switch Online (if you’re not already subcribed), that can be used for pretty much anything (not just playing the demo!). You get an email with a Serial Code to enter in the Nintendo eShop to activate the trial, which means you don’t have to use it right away if you don’t want to.

Unfortunately, it does not look like the Nintendo Switch Online trial is available in North America, only in Europe…
