How to Unlock Characters in Mario Tennis Aces
Nintendo Switch owners have a lot to look forward to this month, with Mario Tennis Aces finally making its way to the new hybrid console. The game features a story-based Adventure Mode, where you can go through various tournaments as Mario to defeat wacky bosses and stop spirits from possessing your friends and their rackets. However, there’s a lot of fun to be had outside of the story mode as well.
Free Play and Tournament Mode will allow you to play as other characters, and if you’re wondering if you can unlock new characters in the game, here’s what you need to know. The short answer is no. From the moment you boot up Mario Tennis Aces, all characters in the game will be available from the get-go when you jump into Free Play or Tournament. There’s no need to complete the story or achieve anything special in order to unlock additional characters.
Having said that, Nintendo does plan on releasing new characters for the game, post-launch. Characters like Diddy Kong, Birdo, and Paratroopa have been confirmed as DLC players for the game, and the best part is, they’ll be available to you for free. Koopa Troopa and Blooper will also be added to Mario Tennis Aces, and players can even get early access to them by participating in an online tournament to be held in July.
