Mario Tennis Aces Online Tournament Demo was just an ad, not a stress test

While the Online Tournament Demo was going on and a few days after it finished, I noticed that a lot of people were commenting and excusing the connection issues by saying that this was supposed to be a network stress test and not a demo of how the game really would be. Actually, though, the Mario Tennis Aces Online Tournament Demo was just an advertisement. It was never intended to be a stress test and probably never used as one.

Sushi Striker’s two versions

As I mentioned in my previous post, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido’s situation is different than the one of Mario Tennis Aces and its Online Tournament Demo. You can also have two copies of the game’s demo, as shown in the screenshot below. Continue reading “Sushi Striker’s two versions”

Full version of the N Masters Smash Bros. for Wii U Corrin video

When I tried uploading the video of Corrin to the N Masters YouTube channel a few years ago, I had to take it down and edit out pretty much the whole 2nd new music track before uploading it again since, by some reason, it was causing the whole video to be muted. (Even though you could already hear that music during the first sample battle)

Now, I’ve found an alternative and different host where I can easily upload the full version of the video without worrying about it being suddenly muted or the file disappearing in any way. This is because it’s a decentralized service.

So now, here is the link to the full video as it was meant to be seen when it was originally uploaded. This version is around 3 minutes longer since it does contain the whole sample of the 2nd music track near the end of the video.

(For people who know about this kind of things and are wondering why I chose bit.tube over d.tube, it’s simple. Getting a Steem private key (account) to be able to use d.tube either costs or is free but takes weeks. Also, video playing doesn’t seem to work well and I’ve read about people having issues uploading. With bit.tube, it was free and simple to get a private key (account) and playing and uploading videos had no issues at all.)

Mario Tennis Aces Online Tournament Demo will be region locked

As proven by the screenshot below, Mario Tennis Aces: Online Tournament Demo seems to be region locked. While the software inside seems to be the exact same one, the internal IDs are different, so you can have two copies of the demo on your Switch.

What this means is that you won’t be able to play against people from other regions during the demo. (Which is proven by the fact that each region has their own schedule to play the demo.)

So far, it seems the full version will not be region locked, though, as it is possible to open the Japanese eShop listing through the American demo.

(Sushi Striker’s case is a bit different which I’ll explain in a different post.)
