Dry Bowser, who is like Bowser but without any skin of meat or scales, is coming to Mario Tennis Aces this month.

Mario Tennis Aces released a full year ago, and we were promised that characters would be added after launch. In fact, Dry Bones is the 16th character to be added to the roster – and, since the game came out a year ago, possibly the final one.

Here’s Dry Bowser is action, showing off his swings and specials.

As with previous characters, you can unlock Dry Bowser this month by playing in the Online Tournament. If you don’t want to do that, or don’t have a Nintendo Switch Online membership, you’ll have to wait – Dry Bowser will be given to all players on August 1.

This is one of several Nintendo titles to receive long-term new content support on Switch – Arms and Splatoon 2 have also had regular tournaments and competitions that are now starting to wind down.

In any case, we’re going to start crossing our fingers for a Mario Golf sequel.
