The Mario Tennis roster has at least one pleasant surprise


Obligatory spoilers

The more I see of Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, the more I want to wait for an eventual sale. I've played a little, and it does feels good, but my concerns about Camelot not breaking enough new ground persist. There are also too many games competing for our attention this time of year.

We're fast approaching the November 20 launch on Wii U and, as such, Nintendo has begun regularly releasing trailers. With each new video, another character is shown. There isn't much left to the imagination at this point.

The latest roster addition comes from Super Mario 3D World.

A relatively fresh face, for once. And I do have a soft spot for floating characters in Mario Tennis.

With Sprixie confirmed, that brings the lineup to:

  • Mario
  • Luigi
  • Toad
  • Peach
  • Daisy
  • Rosalina
  • Bowser
  • Wario
  • Waluigi
  • Yoshi
  • Boo
  • Donkey Kong
  • Toadette
  • Bowser Jr.
  • Dry Bowser

If there's room for anyone else, let's make it that weird, skinny Mario from Super Mario Maker.
