Mario Tennis Aces Getting New Playable Characters

Get ready to hit the court as a Koopa Troopa, Diddy Kong, Blooper, and Birdo

Fans of Mario Tennis Aces have four new playable characters to look forward to dominating the court with, though those of you who have been asking for Shy Guy are still out of luck.

Earlier today Nintendo of America sent out the following tweet with a teaser trailer showcasing four new characters that will appear in the game. They are the Koopa Troopa, Diddy Kong, Blooper, and Birdo.

The reception for Mario Tennis Aces among fans has been lukewarm, with many people criticizing the fact that it's not actually possible to play a full game of tennis. However, it appears as though Nintendo is addressing player concerns and will continue to update the game for the time being.

Mario Sports games really aren't my thing so I haven't given it a try yet, but it's nice to see them remain committed to providing content even post-release. Which character would you like to see added to the game?
