Surprise! Nintendo has announced a free update for Mario Golf: Super Rush, which will be available to download tomorrow.
This adds a new Ranked Match mode, a new course themed around Super Mario Odyssey’s New Donk City and – honestly, best of all – Toadette.
Footage of Toadette shows her using the Super Pickax item from Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker to fire off her golf shots. She can also dash across golf courses while flinging the vegetables from Super Mario Bros. 2.
In a list of changes due tomorrow, Nintendo also mentions “improved motion controls” – though does not go into any further detail on exactly what these might be.
More updates, plural, will come to Mario Golf: Super Rush later in the year. Birdo?

“Running between shots can be chaotic fun, but Mario Golf truly lives in its ever-soothing standard mode,” Christian Donlan wrote, recommending the game in Eurogamer’s Mario Golf: Super Rush review.
