Diddy Kong, well-known transforming racecar driver and banana peel enthusiast, is coming to Mario Tennis Aces at the beginning of September. To get him, you need to play a little tennis first.
Donkey Kong’s best friend arrives on September 1, but he won’t simply just be added to the roster. To get access to him, you need to participate in the online tournament starting the same day all the way to the start of the next month on October 1. You can check out a video clip below to see Diddy in action, complete with a jungle vine shot.
If you don’t participate in the tournament, you’ll likely get Diddy later, as was the case with the previous two DLC characters, Koopa Troopa and Blooper. Diddy is expected to be followed by Birdo and Paratroopa, as well. Assuming they work on the same rules as the other characters with online tournaments, Birdo and Paratroopa will likely require subscription to Nintendo’s online service to play early.
Mario Tennis Aces is available for Nintendo Switch. You can find our review of the game here.
