I hope you all have been practicing lobbing tennis balls at your enemies. Starting next year, Mario Tennis Aces will receive three additional characters to the playable roster. These players will come as free content for the tennis title. There’s one catch, however. It involves monthly online tournaments.
Get ready to serve (your opponents defeat)
In order to unlock the three new tennis stars coming to Aces, gamers have to participate in online tournaments. Not only that but playing online only gives players the chance to get these characters. There are no guarantees.
Here’s a sneak peek at the new faces:
Technical player Luma will be the reward for those that earn a certain amount of points in the month of January 2019. I’d say he’s a ridiculous addition to the roster, but Aces has Chain Chomp. At least Luma has arms.
Defensive character Boom Boom will be gamers’ prize for February tournaments. I remember stomping on this guy’s head numerous times during Super Mario Bros. 3.
Lastly, Speedy Pauline is the catch for March’s tourneys. Good to see the mayor of New Donk City get some time to relax and crush tennis.
I was going to say calling these new sports stars “free content” is a bit misleading. After all, players need a paid subscription to play Mario Tennis Aces online. Thankfully, those of us who choose not to game on the interwebs will still get the above characters exactly one month after each is available.
