More costumes are also rolling out in the months ahead. The Bowser Tennis Outfit is planned for June, followed by the Wario Overall Outfit / Waluigi Overall Outfit in July, and alternate colors for Koopa Troopa and Paratroopa in August. After August, all previous costumes given out as online tournament rewards will be rerun (in rotation) for those who missed them previously.
