Surprise! Nintendo has announced a free update for Mario Golf: Super Rush, which will be available for download tomorrow.
This adds a new Rank Match mode, a new course with a theme around Super Mario Odyssey’s New Donk City and – frankly, best of all – Toadette.
Footage of Toadette shows her using the Super Pickax element from Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker to shoot her golf shots. She can also float across golf courses while tossing the vegetables from Super Mario Bros. 2.
In a list of changes due tomorrow, Nintendo also mentions “improved motion controls”
More updates, the majority, will come to Mario Golf: Super Rush later this year. Birdo?

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