During the Mario Tennis Aces Japan Open 2018 tournament currently being hosted in Kyoto, Nintendo announced three new characters that will come to the game.
According to the trailer, the three playable characters are going to be released between January and March 2019.
We’re getting Luma from Super Mario Galaxy, Pauline from Super Mario Odyssey (and Donkey Kong), and Boom Boom from Super Mario Bros. 3 and more beloved games. That’s quite a varied lineup right there, to fit pretty much every taste, or almost.
You can check out the trailer for yourself below and see them in action, while we wonder whether Mario will be able to play against Pauline without getting excessively distracted.
Mario Tennis Aces is currently available exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
