A free update is due to arrive to Super Mario Odyssey on Thursday, 22nd February.
The update will bring a new mini game called Balloon World, which will be available once the main story is completed. Here’s the explanation of the new mode from Nintendo’s website:
“Once players download the free update and complete the main story, Balloon World will become available, and players just have to find Luigi in each Kingdom and speak with him to get started. In “Hide It” mode, players have a limited amount of time to hide a balloon, while in “Find It” mode, players have the same period of time to locate balloons hidden by other players from around the world. Creative use of captures is key to success! Whether players are hiding balloons or finding them, their Rank will go up based on their high score. While playing Balloon World, the atmosphere will change for each kingdom: for example, it might be raining in New Donk City, or the sun might be setting in Tostarena.”
Along with this, a range of new outfits will also become available. This will include The Sunshine, Musician and Knight Armor. You can take a look at them below:
