How to Enable Swing Mode in Mario Tennis Aces
If pressing buttons just isn’t enough for you, and you want a more immersive game experience in Mario Tennis Aces, you might consider enabling Swing Mode. This turns on motion controls in your Joy-Cons, and you can use a singular Joy-Con to hit the ball whenever it’s in your court.
From the main menu of Mario Tennis Aces, you can choose the Swing Mode option to play locally with other players. You’ll hold one Joy-Con and you can use the analog stick to move your character around. Whenever you want to hit the ball, you’ll have to physically swing your arm to hit it, and you can pull off some cool backhand moves as well. Be careful, though; the motion controls will take a while to get used to in Mario Tennis Aces, and it’s very easy to hit the ball out of bounds in this mode. That’s part of what makes it fun, though.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like you can enable Swing Mode when playing in Adventure or online modes. However, a September update for the game will allow you to play Swing Mode with other players via local wireless connection.
