Luma, Pauline, and Boom Boom will join the burgeoning tennis roster.
Three more characters are hitting the courts in Mario Tennis Aces, Nintendo’s Switch-exclusive tennis game. They include Luma from Super Mario Galaxy, Pauline in her Super Mario Odyssey attire, and Boom Boom, who’s been seen throughout the Mario franchise. Check them all out below.
These new characters are scheduled to release in Q1 2019. If the experience with previous characters like Koopa Troopa and Blooper is any indication, then we’ll likely see tournaments to unlock the newcomers early. Players who earned a set number of points in online tournaments will receive access before the new characters were released to all.
Of course, you should expect Luma, Pauline, and Boom Boom to release separately instead of all at once. In the meantime, players can unlock Koopa Paratroopa with a Nintendo Switch Online account, or play around with Birdo and Diddy Kong. Will there more post-launch characters in 2019? Time will tell, but Nintendo’s support is certainly appreciated.
