Ever since it launched back in 2018, Mario Tennis Aces has been getting a steady stream of new characters via its monthly tournaments and DLC. From your typical standbys like Birdo and Dry Bones to more novel choices like Pauline and Fire Piranha Plant, the game has seen roughly one character added per month via tournaments and online modes. It’s pretty impressive really, and it’s taken an already decent roster and made it all the better in the process.
However, all things must come to an end, and Mario Tennis Aces’ DLC is no exception. Hence this July, Nintendo are releasing the final new playable character for those who play in the month’s tournament.
