Free Super Mario Odyssey Update Adds Luigi's Balloon World

Hide and seek for Mario and Luigi. In "Find It" mode, players have the same amount of time to locate balloons hidden by other players from around the world.

Announced in today's Nintendo Direct Mini, Luigi's Balloon World is a new competitive mode that will see players hiding and then seeking out balloons placed by other players around the game.

In "Hide It", you have 30 seconds from Luigi's spawned spot in each Kingdom to hide a balloon in the most hard spot you can think. Players will be ranked by their ability to find and hide balloons, trying to set the highest scores they possibly can.

The Luigi's Balloon World update will hit Super Mario Odyssey this February.




The free update will also introduce new outfits in the Sunshine Shades and Outfit, Musician Hat and Outfit, and Knight Helmet and Armor, as well as new filters for Snapshot Mode.

Are you excited about new Super Mario Odyssey content?

The free update seems to be a great way for players to continue to milk the joy out of such a stellar title. Let us know what you think in the comments.
