Originally appearing in New Super Mario Bros back in 2012, the famous villain becomes playable for everyone in Nintendo’s latest Mario Tennis installment. \n \nDry Bowser makes use of his impressive size to become an impregnable fortress against all opponents. Dry Bowser uses a defensive style of tennis. Dry Bowser hits an impressive spinning backhand that curves to trick his opponents, which in combination with his spin movement allow him to throw other characters off. \n \nHowever, don’t think he will only have defensive moves. It would be foolish to underestimate his powerful smash. Introducing a new character allows for a new strategy to combat not only this new play style but also gives players more variety when competing against others. \n \nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/NintendoAmerica\/status\/1145508437838581762 \n \nTo acquire Dry Bowser early players enter an online tournament spanning the month of July.
