Mario Tennis Aces powerful and defensive characters detailed, new screenshots

Posted on April 13, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Screenshots, Switch

Last week, Nintendo Treehouse started sharing information about the character types in Mario Tennis Aces. We first heard about all-around and technical characters. Another post has gone up on the Nintendo Treehouse Log today, this time going over powerful and defensive characters.

We have the full lowdown from Nintendo below. Along with the information, we have another batch of new screenshots.

Powerful Characters

Powerful characters can dish out shots with very high speed. Their movement may be slower than some of the other character types, but when their racket finds their target, watch out! That ball is going and gone. This character type is for you if you want to keep the pressure on your opponents with an offensive onslaught.

When up against Powerful characters, exploit their slower speed by aiming your shots far away from their position, where they hopefully cannot reach… (Unless they’ve mastered the Trick Shot…)

Defensive Characters

What do these two characters have in common? That’s right… Long limbs! Waluigi and Bowser Jr. (or his Koopa Clown Car, rather) use their extendable arms to strategically block, attack, or gra—wait, sorry, wrong game. They use their long arms to return all kinds of shots! It’s tough to hit a ball out of reach for these folks.

These characters will be very comfortable in the center of the court, where they’ll have great horizontal range to defend against balls that enter their turf. It maybe be best to try to mix up your strategy against Waluigi or Bowser Jr. by throwing in some Zone Shots or Special Shots to trip up their rhythm and displace them.

I can’t wait to get my game face on with y’all when the game drops on June 22nd.
