Here's some more information on Mario Tennis Aces as well as a release date.

A rather lengthy presentation detailed the gameplay changes made including the "zone shot" that lets you take your time and aim a shot (hopefully out of reach of your opponent). More details regarding the pre-launch tournament, including official dates and times, will be announced sometime in the future.

However, you're not completely helpless if you're on the receiving end of a Zone Shot. A broken racket will result in a K.O. You also have Zone speed, which will slow down time for a short while.

Lastly, a special edition of Octopath Traveler was revealed to have the base game, a popup book with all eight main characters, a selective soundtrack, a map, and a collector's coin. Wii U has already been a platform to Mario Tennis game, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash which were released in November 2015 on.
