Mario Tennis Aces

Luigi has a fairly significant role in Mario Tennis Aces’ story mode. Its his actions early on that lead to things spiraling out of control, and he appears later on as well.

Camelot president Hiroyuki Takahashi and vice president Shugo Takahashi along with Nintendo producer Toshiharu Izuno spoke about Mario Tennis Aces’ story mode in-depth in a recent issue of Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream. Hiroyuki mentioned that giving Luigi a larger focus would help accomplish the goal of surprising players and that “Mario would be burdened with a sense of sadness for his brother that’d come from a pretty deep place.” He also mentioned that there was difficulty in balancing the story with gameplay.

Mario Tennis Aces version 2.0.1 seems to have brought along an issue with it. When choosing Co-Op Challenge, players may encounter an error message and the game will be forced to close.

The good news is that Nintendo is aware of the situation, and intends to fix it soon. A fix will be implemented by October 16. That means Mario Tennis Aces should be getting another small update soon.


Later tonight, Mario Tennis Aces’ latest update will be going live. Version 2.0.1 is making changes to the shot system, characters, and more.

The full patch notes are as follows:
