It will feature more than 15 characters, and, of course, you will be able to play it with multiple Switch controller configurations with four players. In addition to the basic swing types, Nintendo is also introducing Zone Shot, a special move that lets you use motion controls to aim your shot precisely. Those moves are also powerful enough to damage your opponent's racket, and instantly knock them out after taking three.
