Nintendo published a new trailer for Mario Tennis Aces on Switch, showing new character Birdo (Catherine in Japanese).
Birdo is characterized as an All-Around character like Daisy, Mario, and Luigi. People with a Nintendo Switch Online account can unlock Birdo early, starting October 1st, by playing the game’s online mode. Nintendo will properly add her to the game for everyone on November 1st. This is the same method Nintendo used when adding Diddy Kong to the game.
Diddy Kong, Birdo and Koopa Paratroopa were all announced in June 2018 to be added in Fall. Nintendo is also trying its best to keep the game’s competitive scene alive, listening to players’ feedback and patching the game multiple times to better balance the characters. The latest balance patch happened in August and you can read about its details here.
You can watch Birdo’s trailer below.
