Ninty has confirmed that Dry Bones and Kamek are heading to Mario Tennis Aces in the next couple of months. The news comes hot on the heels of today's Pauline trailer, who is taking to the court via online tournaments from tomorrow.

Kamek is first in line and can be earned by competing in tournaments starting in April, while Dry Bones can be snapped up the following month. If you don't fancy slugging it out online, then you'll have to wait a bit longer to grab them both.

Dry Bones and Kamek should be instantly familiar to Mazza fans. The former first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 as an enemy in the castle stages, while the latter cropped up in Super Mario World, although Kamek is a specific koopa wizard; the generic term for the enemy is Magikoopa, in case you wondered.

Mario Tennis Aces came out last summer for the Switch, and is a pretty decent, albeit familiar romp.
