Perhaps one of the more exciting exposes during this week’s Nintendo Direct was Mario Golf: Super Rush. Nintendo didn’t go into all that much detail, it appears it may have revealed more information than it intended to on the game page.
As identified by numerous fans, it appears King Bob-omb might be a playable character. In the Speed Golf description, it was mentioned how “King Bob-omb can shower the course with bombs”. Nintendo has actually now updated the page.
Below is the initial line, thanks to Twitter user SherlockPrower:
“Tee off at the same time exact same up to three other 3 * and race through the course to get your ball in. Surpass and disrupt your challengers with dashes and unique shots. Luigi, for instance, can freeze the green and King Bob-omb can pelt the course with bombs.”
King Bob-omb initially appeared in the 1996 video game, Super Mario 64. Considering that then, he’s revealed up in series like Mario Party and more just recently appeared as a playable racer in the mobile game Mario Kart Tour.
