Mario Tennis Aces first released in June last year to massive commercial success, going on to sell more than two million units. We absolutely loved the game in our original review, scoring it a coveted 10 out of 10. However, the game hasn’t stayed in the spotlight since its first release, with it often being overshadowed by some of Nintendo’s following major games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Hopefully this free trial will help bring the game the attention that it deserves.
