Is Toad an Unlockable Character in Mario Golf: World Tour?

Is Toad finally going to be a playable character in the Mario Golf series? According this blog post, Toad is set to be an unlockable character in Mario Golf: World Tour and his reveal is set to appear in the latest issue of the Japanese magazine Famitsu.

Of course, this is all based on a blog without a source and through a rough translation of the Japanese text, but it’s interesting to speculate nonetheless. We have used this source before, so there is a good chance this is true. What do you think? Are those stubby arms too short to swing a club?

Hey, that would be really awesome! I think Toadsworth or Lakitu serve as better guides than Toad.

I hate Metal Mario! Worse than Funky Kong. He’s just dumb old Mario, not even unique like Shadow Mario (at least he isn’t actually Mario!). I’m really hoping Petey Piranha makes an appearance as the “biggest hitter” character… And I just remembered that it was Mario Golf 64 that introduced Metal Mario to spin-offs.

I understand what you’re saying, but have Rosalina and Luma as playabel characters in the same game is so likely as have Wario and Waluigi, I mean there’s no reason for Rosalina and Luma don’t be playabel in the same game, separately.
