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.
Hi, everyone. It’s me, Rie Kanari, N Masters Official Representative. ^_^
So Link-NM told me I could post and share this with all of you who are now trying Mario Tennis Aces through its Online Tournament Demo, specially since a lot of you seem to be new to the franchise. Continue reading “Rie’s Quick Guide to Mario Tennis Aces”
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.)
