Dr. Mario World, the mobile spin-off of Nintendo’s puzzle series, has debuted a new character, and it’s a curious one. From June 26 at 3 AM PT, Dr Baby Wario will arrive in the game, and will be available to use as a character.
The little guy, pictured in the tweet below, might or might not be cute depending on whether or not you can deal with his two enormous walls of teeth.

Baby Wario previously appeared in Yoshi’s Island DS, and in the 14 years since he has seemingly earned a medical degree. While his incarnation in that game wore just a diaper, this time he’s fully dressed with a doctor’s coat and tie. They grow up so fast.
Dr. Mario World has been the least profitable of Nintendo’s mobile games, and it’s unlikely that Dr. Baby Wario can turn the results around. With Nintendo potentially looking to move away from mobile development, hopefully the good (baby) doctor will be able to find other work eventually.
