Dry Bowser Playable in Mario Tennis Open

Dry Bowser has been confirmed to be one of the last two playable characters in Mario Tennis Open. Along with the recent Nintendo 3DS firmware update came the revamped eShop. There a new trailer showing off Mario Tennis Open was posted including the clip of Dry Bowser in action. Check it all out below!

In addition to the eShop trailer, another new trailer has managed to find its way onto the internet.

Now we only have a single character left unveiled. Could it be Rosalina? Should we expect another outlandish character? Sound off in the comments below!

There could be more characters because one of the trailers said something like “16 characters and more to unlock.” That could either mean there’s more than 16 characters or it’s the Mii stuff. Since Dry Bowser is playable, there could be 20 characters with Dry Bones as his partner.
They better not throw Metal Mario in and laugh at us as they waste a character slot with a recolor.

Dry Bowser, Baby Peach and Luma? What odd characters. I really hope that other unannounced character is another defensive type…

Besides, now Yoshi has a good partner (Baby Peach) and Boo has a partner (Dry Bowser?) so all that’s left is poor Luma. I want Rosalina.

I noticed in the second trailer, at the part where all the clothings are spinning around the 3DS, that there were quite a lot of Blooper clothes, including shoes and what might be the wristbands. As well, if the trailer itself says “16 characters and more to unlock” can we actually believe that now? Also, when Dry Bowser lost the point, his animation looked very similar to Bowser’s…could he just be an alternate colour? I also did notice Blue Yoshi clothes from the earlier scene, as well as Dry Bowser clothes.

Uh, what if Baby Peach is an alternate of Peach and Dry Bowser is an alternate of Bowser? Just speculating, but then we could probably have a “King Boo” alternate for Boo, “Blue Yoshi” for Yoshi, “Baby Daisy” for Daisy, “Fire Mario/Baby Mario” for Mario etc. Then, the roster would basically be doubled and Nintendo would be playing it smart by only revealing one new character; Luma.

That leaves three slots open. My guesses are Rosalina, Shy Guy/Fly Guy and Kamek. Although I’d love to see Birdo in.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the secret character is Birdo. Who would expect that? If the secret character turns out to Funky Kong I will refuse to buy the game because I hate Funky. The final spot deserves to go to a female character. I’m hoping Rosalina takes the last spot but I wouldn’t mind toadette.

I hope each character gets a team mate, king boo for boo, birdo for yoshi, dry bones for dry bowser, baby mario for baby peach, and, i dont like rosalina, but if there is teams luma’s team mate is most likely her. Though i want baby wario, petey piranha, hammer bro, and alot of other charcters

I really dont get why everybody is saying that their are only 16 characters. It says in the european trailer that there will be 16 characters and MORE to unlock. I personally think that Baby Mario, Dry Bones and Rosalina will be the remaining characters so there will be 20 characters (not including mii) but if that happens then yoshi’s default partner will be boo…

The reason everyone thinks so, is because Nintendo confirmed a total of 16, and the Mii, making 17.

When they said 16 characters and more to unlock, I think they were refering to other modes and courts and stuff, not extra characters. I actually think the character roster is decently sized for a Mario Tennis game.

The previous Mario Tennis wasn’t on a handheld device. Handhelds generally do have less characters.
