A new character hits the courts in June.
Mario Tennis Aces released last year to mostly solid reviews, though some felt it lacked in content a bit. Well, Nintendo has been working to correct that, as the game has received various updates with new characters and modes post-launch. Today we get a look at another addition to the growing roster with the Fire Piranha Plant.
You can see the character reveal trailer below. Piranha Plant has already shown up in Smash, so perhaps it’s only natural that he show up in this corner of the Nintendo universe to dominate another sport. He’s surprisingly agile for a giant plant in a little pot, as he can do very quick spin shots, and, like his name implies, he uses fire with his hits for that little extra burn.
Mario Tennis Aces is available now for Nintendo Switch. Fire Piranha Plant will be available to those who play in the newest online tournament June 1-30th. After that he will be available to all players starting July 1st.
