Diddy Kong swinging to Mario Tennis Aces

Diddy Kong - Mario Tennis Aces

Gamescom 2018 is here, which means a heaping helping of fresh Nintendo news. First off, Diddy Kong is headed to Mario Tennis Aces! A new trailer has dropped to demonstrate all of Diddy’s basic abilities, which you can check out below. His special shot involves swinging from a vine; you’d really think that that would be against regulation, but *shrug* whatever.

Diddy Kong will be available early — between September 1 and 30 — for those who “join the online tournament,” and will be available for everyone starting October 1.

Are you excited to have this lovable primate in the roster? Swing in and let us know!
