If you haven’t kept up with Dr. Mario World, the mobile title has been introducing many never-before-seen ‘Doctor’ variants of various Mario characters such as Dr. Waluigi and Dr. Baby Peach. The game’s next doctor character, however, is probably set to be one of the most bizarre of them all!
The official Dr. Mario World account has revealed that Dr. Goomba Tower will join the game as part of an upcoming April 26 update. As you can see below, the character is quite literally three goombas attempting to play doctor!
Red: "Introducing a new doctor arriving Apr. 26, 11 PM PT. It's Dr. Goomba Tower! Uh-huh, I see. So they used our trick. Better be careful not to get eliminated when they're lined up three in a row. Please don't hurt me. Argh!" #DrMarioWorld https://t.co/WOLKO2bXuL pic.twitter.com/Sfnx1fjYYF

Of course, many fans reacted with a mix of surprise and amusement. Some felt the concept was so absurd it became good, while others just appreciated something more creative than a plain ‘Dr. Goomba’.

This is easily the best new doctor in this game. Literally nothing could top this.

As much as I’d love an obscure RPG reference, like with Dr. Toadley, this is just pure fun.
I’d love to see more stupid stuff like this.

Ok but this idea is genuinely much more hilarious and creative than if they just added a Dr. Goomba
