Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash will be smashing into stores late this November, according to an announcement from Nintendo of America’s Twitter account.

Though not much has been said about Ultra Smash since it was announced during E3 2015, the official page for the game offers a few details about what we can expect. The game will feature both singles and doubles multiplayer matches, multiplayer matches, a new Jumpshot technique, and Mega Battles where you’ll want to grab the Mega Mushroom to, as the site puts it, ?gain a ?big? advantage over your competition.?

The announcement trailer confirmed that Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser, and Toad will be playable, but beyond that, the roster is anyone’s guess. The site does offer a small tidbit of info, with one section stating that we’ll see some characters making their Mario Tennis debut. That’s unexpected, given how deep into the Mario canon previous entries have delved. If we’ve already seen Petey Piranha, Wiggler, and Baby Mario take to the court against all rational expectations, what possible surprises could Nintendo have in store?

At the very latest, we’ll find out when Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash launches on the Wii U on November 20th.
