Are you ready to become a literal tennis star? Mario Tennis Aces‘ Luma launch dates have arrived. We now know that the character that first became famous in Super Mario Galaxy will show up to play tennis in January 2019. People who join the next tournament, which will run between January 1 through February 1, 2019, will get early access to the playable character. Those who do not participate in the tournament will get Luma on February 1, 2019.
The Luma appearing in Mario Tennis Aces is the standard yellow variety, though it will arrive on the field with a green one. It appears this is the one that Rosalina adopted in Super Mario Galaxy and that might accompany her in her Super Smash Bros. appearances.
Here is a look at Luma in action in Mario Tennis Aces.
Luma is the first of three upcoming Mario Tennis Aces characters. The others are Pauline and Boom Boom.
Mario Tennis Aces is available for the Nintendo Switch.
