Mario Tennis Aces free trial hits Switch Online next week

Smash your way through the best Mario Tennis game around, which is free to play for a limited time.


Still among the ranks of folks who haven't yet gotten to try Mario Tennis Aces? If your'e a Nintendo Switch Online member, that's all about to change.

If you're a paying subscriber, you'll be able to download and play Mario Tennis Aces for free from August 7 through August 13 as part of the service's new "Game Trials" offer. This means you'll get to play Mario Tennis Aces for free for the following 7 days after you sign up, during which time you can pretend you actually own it, or evaluate it in full as the program is meant to help you to do.

If you end up enjoying the game and want to purchase it when the free trial is over, you'll get a whopping 33% off, and you'll then be able to carry over any progress made during the trial. This is the first Game Trial option to be offered for most players, following Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker being given the same treatment for Japanese players earlier this month.

Previously, I reviewed Mario Tennis Aces at Shacknews, awarding it a 9 out of 10. Here's what I thought:

"Mario Tennis Aces has provided me with some of the most fun I've had in a Mario game in quite some time. Through it all, even the most frustrating parts of it, I was compelled to keep playing, no matter what. It's addictive, just like the other iterations that came before it, in the best way."

If you've yet to see how much fun it is, go ahead and take advantage of this deal. You won't be sorry.
