The new mode introduced in the update is called Ring Shot. Players will utilize precise aiming skills to smash the tennis ball through a series of various sized rings that float along the tennis court. The goal is to churn out the highest score possible with up to four players participating in the competition at once.
Along with Ring Shot comes a new challenge titled Yoshi’s Ring Shot. This limited time challenge has players controlling Yoshi in a cooperative challenge to score as many points in the Ring Shot mode as possible. Players will be rewarded with different colored Yoshis for earning enough points in the challenge. The Yoshi’s Ring Shot challenge is only available until June 1, 2019.
