Square will add some of its own characters to the upcoming DS sports title.
Did you think Mario sports games were only for Mario characters? Not when Square is involved. The official Japanese site for Mario Hoops revealed five new characters that come directly from the Final Fantasy universe.
- White Mage
- Black Mage
- Sabotender (Cactuar)
Instead of going with specific characters from later games in the series, they opted to go with more generic jobs like those seen in the first game on the NES.
