Nintendo has announced that Koopa Troopa, Blooper, Diddy Kong, Birdo and Koopa Paratroopa will be released as free content for Mario Tennis Aces.
You will have the chance to unlock these playable characters early by participating in monthly online tournaments.
Koopa Troopa, a Speed character that is the fastest in the game, will be the reward for those that earn enough points in the online tournament next month (1st – 31st July 2018).
Whereas Blooper will be your reward for participating in the next online tournament (1st – 31st August 2018), a Tricky character that can bend shots to try to catch an opponent out.
Diddy Kong, Birdo and Koopa Paratroopa will then be the next rewards that you can expect from September onwards.
Worry not, though. If you can’t participate in an online tournament, every reward character will be unlocked for all players on the first day of the following month.
Mario Tennis Aces will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on June 22nd.
