Mario Tennis Aces releases on June 22nd, 2018, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The still unnamed Yoshi game seems fairly certain, but it's possible that Metroid Prime 4 and the unnamed new Fire Emblem game will be left till E3 in June.

Nintendo said earlier this week it would discuss more information on Mario Tennis Aces which is out this spring, and it sure did. The powerful "Zone and "Special" shots have the potential to damage and even break an opponent's racket if not blocked in time". Once it's all used up, you'll have to perform trick shots. Another ability is Zone Speed, which works like bullet time, allowing you to get to balls you wouldn't normally be able to reach.
