Latest Update Version 1.1.2 Now Available For Mario Tennis Aces On Nintendo Switch

The latest software update for Mario Tennis Aces is now available for download on Nintendo Switch, adding several game balance updates and various other changes. Official patch notes from the development team at Nintendo are as follows:

Version 1.1.2

  • Game Balance Updates
    For All Characters:

    • We have adjusted the range within which a character is able to return a ball, as well as how much energy is used when doing a Trick Shot to hit a ball that goes behind them.*We made the distance you can move and the scope between left and right shorter. We also shortened the time it takes to successfully recover energy and increased how much energy is used when a Trick Shot is late.
    • We have made it so that, when returning a serve, a ball cannot inflict a Body Shot until it bounces once.

    For Bowser Jr.:

    • We have adjusted how fast Bowser Jr. can move when charging a shot and lowered the angle at which he hits the ball back.*We plan to adjust the balance of this character further in time for the August tournament
  • Other Changes
    • Revised errors with text display.
  • Notice about the Rating system in Online Tournament
    • A ranking display based on Rating will be added to the ranking board starting with the August 2018 tournament.
      Along with this change, the Rating will not be shown on the Total Points Ranking board. If you want to check your Ratings for July, please check the Tournament chart.
    • Your Rating will change on a monthly basis based on the results of the previous month’s play. (This will be reflected starting with the switch from July to August.)*Ratings of 2,000 or less -> Start at 2,000
      *Ratings from 2,000-2,500 -> Same rating will be maintained
      *Rating of 2,500 or more -> 1/10 of the value will be added to 2,500
      *Value will be reset to 2,000 if the player did not play the previous month or if any questionable data is present.

    1. The online for the pre release demo was pretty glitchy, the full release had a day one patch that improve it drastically. The only thing people find a bit disappointing is that for some reason all the mini game modes stay in the single player for story mode and they wish they could be bonus side games for multiplayer

    2. It’s made by Camelot, a first party studio that makes all the Mario Tennis and Golf games. Online connections are fine, you have the option to refuse a match if someone has a poor connection and doing that has made my matches all smooth. Trick shot balance and Bowser Jr are the two major issues and it looks like they’re addressing both. I’m still not sure that allowing energy to charge after a well timed trick shot is appropriate, since it’s still rewarding players for being out of place instead of costing energy for getting out of trouble. Yes it costs energy if you’re late, and yes they’re punishing players more if they do miss their timing now, but I still don’t like it. Good players were able to time in flawlessly and it was difficult to force them into a position where they couldn’t do it. The only other way to charge energy is by being in the RIGHT position to get your power shots charged, and that makes way more sense.

      1. Online’s usually quite good in my experience. Plus, the ability to refuse a challenger with bad connection is nice. Overall, the game’s very fun, though rather content light. The game being worth the price kinda depends on how much mileage you can get out of playing online.
