Toad
Birdo

I obviously can't post the scans, but I'm excited to play as Birdo and Kamek. The Rosalina fans are going to be salty, but in all honesty, I can't picture her playing sports. Evidently Nintendo agrees with me.

No Rosalina? Well I'm... surprised. The lack of Luma is also quite surprising as well. All that's needed is Wario and Waluigi anyways, heheh.

...I should really get this game though, as I've never really taken the time to try a Mario Golf title. Though I recall hating the N64 one, ha.

EDIT: Woahwoahwaidaminutewaidaminute... KAMEK? How'd I not notice that??? Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

Kamek was in the games. A lot.

The real travesty here is Birdo over Shy Guy or Rosalina.
I'll have to get my SNES out and look for the games telling me his name is Kamek.

What is wrong with gamers today...
And it can't be blamed on the youth cause Kamek is in more recent games like the Mario and Luigi series and others.
Shame on you all >:|
Ok this is a joke now.

Coming off Mario Tennis I have to ask. What did Rosetta do to Camelot? Did she run over their dog or something.

Though come to think of it her appearing would require her to have a sport costume and I don't think the biker costume from Mario Kart is quite going to cut it...

I guess she could have an aversion to sports and physical activity too.

Kamek finally getting his due outside of the baseball games that everyone turned up in (and I mean everyone, even K.Rool reached that party).
It's been a long road since Kamek got dumped out of MK64 for Wario or whoever stole his thunder.

That aside where the hell is Shyguy?
Not exactly an exciting roster, I would've got a kick out of one of those Mario Golf 64 randomers turning up, "it's a Sonny day!".

Damn, no Rosalina :( ... Kamek is cool though.

Well, I'm going with my bro Boo. Kamek might be cool as well.

Birdo, on the other hand, is complete trash...seriously, any other character would be better in its place.

Uh, geez, really?

http://www.mariowiki.com/kamek

Kameks been in all the yoshi island games, near all the mario party games, 3 of the mario and luigi games, both console NSMB games and sticker star.
Not really fanfiction...
Yeah not really fan fiction but enemy names weren't really a thing in the NES and SNES days, other than goomba and koopa.

So it's just funny to me that people think there's something wrong with a new generation of gamers because they supposedly don't know the names of characters in a game.

Cool to see Kamek in. I always thought it was weird how he gets very little representation outside the main games, considering how important he is in Yoshi's Island, and even the main games, when he powers up the bosses.

Maybe Nintendo got a bit defensive after some people mocked them and said Rosalina was Nintendo's Lightning :(

The shithead magikoopa from Yoshi's Island
Is he different from the magic enemies that shows up in Mario (non-Yoshi) platformers or is it the same person minus the broom?

I am surprised Rosalina isn't in, even as a unlockable. The cast is really male heavy.

Now that I compare it, the characters are mostly the same as the last game (toadstool tour).

The only differences are Birdo got moved to unlockable, koopa troopa, petey piranha and shadow mario got dropped while Bowser JR got moved to the starting cast. The only newcomers are Toad, Paratroopa and Kamek.

Not true, look at any of the NES/ SNES era instruction manuals and they have pages dedicated to enemies and their names.
