Fire Piranha Plant is the next DLC character being added to Mario Tennis Aces, as announced via a video published by Nintendo earlier this evening!

Piranha Plants are on a bit of an upturn (or would that be curve?) thanks to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We now have one as a full-fledged fighter and an amiibo, but why stop there?



Taking a page from the Cheeto, Piranha Plant’s going flaming hot for its Tennis debut. Try to one up big boss Petey, or even outdo Mario when it comes to pyrotechnics. For this potted player, nothing’s impossible — just don’t over-water…

Fire Piranha Plant will be made available as a participation bonus for taking part in the game’s June online tournament.

This coming month’ll make one year since the game launched, so who knows what to expect after its new, Technical tennis pro?
