A number of new characters were confirmed for Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash this week. Players will be able to control Waluigi, Rosalina, and more. But there were some additional characters that Nintendo hadn’t officially announced. In new footage from the game, we’re able to determine who the mystery roster additions are.

We’ll be putting the information after the break!

Nintendo has finally published a new Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash trailer. In the video, we’re able to see a few new playable characters. Check it out below.

Just a few moments ago, Nintendo shared a North American release date for Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash via its Twitter account. The sports game is set to arrive on November 20.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is also due out in Europe on November 20. The PAL release date was revealed during Gamescom 2015 in August.

Nintendo has shipped a few Wii U games at $40 – notably Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker as well as Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. We may soon have another title with the same price point on our hands.

I didn’t make too much of it at the time, but retailer Newegg recently added a listing to its website for Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. Consumers can reserve it for $39.99, which is supposedly $20 in savings. I’d wager that it’s instead the game’s final price point.

The Nintendo UK store also just put up its listing for Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. It can be pre-ordered for £39.99, and since this is Nintendo’s store, that’s about as official as things get.

So although it’s not absolutely confirmed, $40 (£40 for our UK friends) is looking like Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash’s final price point. That’d probably go over much better than if it were $60!

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash will contain a number of controller options. It will be possible to use the GamePad, Pro Controller, or Wii Remote.

When it comes to the Wii Remote, Game Informer reports that players hold the controller sideways. There are no motion controls in other words. Leaving motion controls out feels slightly strange to me, but it is what it is!
