With Mario Tennis Aces' release just around the corner, Nintendo is giving fans the chance to try out the game in a pre-launch online tournament. In case you'd forgotten, or in case you hadn't heard about the event at all, here's a friendly reminder to show you when you can start playing.

For European players, the event gets underway today (1st June) at 3pm BST, ending on Sunday 3rd June at 11:59pm BST.

For players in North America, the tournament starts today (1st June) at 6pm PDT / 9pm EDT, ending at 11:59pm PDT Sunday 3rd June.

Remember, you'll be able to choose from Mario, Bowser, Peach, or Yoshi, and can challenge the "online tournament" as many times as you like. More characters will unlock as you play, and you'll be able to get your hands on the 'Overalls Mario' costume for use in the full game if you take part. The software can already be downloaded directly from the Switch eShop.
