    1. Sounds like drip fed content ala Splatoon to encourage players to come back and reengage. Kind of like how they’re using early access for the first two dlc characters to get people to play their tournament events.

      1. @PiePiePie “If you participate in the online tournament that will be held in July after the game launches [and] if you earn enough points in the tournament, you can earn Koopa Troopa as a playable character early,” Roxanne said. “Otherwise, he will be available for everyone starting Aug. 1.”

        Similarly, players who take part in an online tournament in August will get access to Blooper early. For everyone else, Blooper will be unlocked in September.

  1. It’s not DLC since they are on disk o3o but it is set up for them to roll out over time like in splatoon/arms
