When Mario Golf: Super Rush launched earlier this year, one of the biggest criticisms raised in the game was its lack of content. Nintendo has been working on rectifying that issue with a number of free post-launch updates that have been adding new courses and new characters to the game, and now, we have another one of those.

This update, incidentally, is the last free update the game will receive, albeit a pretty meaty one. It adds two new characters with Wiggler and Shy Guy, two new golf courses with Shelltop Sanctuary and All-Star Summit, and finally, two new modes with Target Golf – which allow players to play with just shots, without the need to know the exact rules of golf – and One-On, One-Putt – where players have to hit the grille on the first swing and then put into the cup on the second swing. In the meantime, a number of bug fixes and balancing adjustments are also arriving with the update. You can read the full patch notes below.

Mario Golf: Super Rush available on the Nintendo Switch. You can read our review of the game through here.
