Dr. Mario World is getting a pair of new doctors that you need to meet.

Starting tomorrow, you can welcome Dr. Donkey Kong and Dr. Diddy Kong to the game. The official Dr. Mario World Twitter account made the announcement. First was Donkey Kong.

"Blue: "It seems that new doctors will be making their appearance at 3 AM on Oct. 31 PT. Ah, I see that Dr. Donkey Kong is arriving this time around! It's a wonder that he can hear a thing through such a rustic stethoscope." #DrMarioWorld"

Then came Dr. Diddy Kong:

Yellow: "The other doctor making his debut at 3 AM on Oct. 31 PT is Dr. Diddy Kong! He's really rocking that wooden head mirror. But what's a doctor need a head mirror for? I think it's probably just to make him look official!" #DrMarioWorld

In addition to the two new characters, some new jungle-themed stages will be added to the game. You can expect them to be added around 3 AM PT on October 31. If you've been looking for a reason to jump back into Dr. Mario World, then this seems like a pretty great one to me.

Are you ready to start monkeying around with the two new medical staff members?
