It’s hard to imagine that Baby Peach is returning from a 4-year obscurity! I hope this is the same for Baby Mario!

I find it VERRY unlikely any Kong other than Dk or Diddy will be in this or any Tennis game and Candy has always been a NCP anyway.

Diddy Kong is 15+ Mario games appearances.
Dixie was only 3 and never seen since 2008.
Funky Kong is playable in Kart Wii and Dixie was not in.
