Super Mario Odyssey Getting Balloon World Update

Super Mario Odyssey Getting Balloon World Update

You can't beat free and Super Mario Odyssey has received nothing but praise since its initial launch on the hybrid console. We've had some fantastic reveals so far, including Donkey Kong news, a Dark Souls remaster, and even a Pokken update! In the latter, the player has 30 seconds to find balloons hidden by players from around the world. The new update will come with new outfits, new filters, and more to do and it's slated for this February!

Luigi's Balloon World minigame can be played in two modes: "hide it" and "find it". It's great to see Nintendo continue to support one of the greater games in its series, Super Mario Sunshine!

In order to access the minigame, you have to first complete Mario Odyssey World's main story.

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.

Along with the Balloon World content, the update will also include new Snapshot filters and new costumes. By finding balloons faster or by hiding balloons better players will move up in rank.

The long hoped for Nintendo Direct was dropped on us like a Beyoncé album this morning and with it, among lots of other insane news, came the announcement of a free update to Super Mario Odyssey.
