Mario Tennis Aces releases June 22 with pre-release tournament

Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. As well as digging out news and directing all hands to the feature riggings, Chris also finds time to consume all things speedrun and can even understand 70% of what a "half A-press" is.

Previously, Chris was a mercenary for many of the net's biggest game sites, helping their readers understand the convoluted world of digital sports. This culminated in a nomination for esports journalist of the year, and an intense love for the sound of gold dropping out of a dead lane creep.

You can get in touch with Chris to talk about work or the $6million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter. Which is a lot easier now that there's a link here.

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.
