A new mini-game called Balloon World is coming to Super Mario Odyssey. The January 11th Nintendo Direct featured the first look at "Luigi's Balloon World". The update will also feature new filters for photo mode.
Once you beat the main story mode of Super Mario Odyssey (which is also when many other parts of the game open up - you should definitely do that if you haven't yet), you'll find Mario's lanky brother half-floating around the various kingdoms. The free update will be coming to Super Mario Odyssey in February. In the "hide it" mode, you race against the 30-second timer to conceal balloons in the hardest to find places on the board. There will be rankings boards so you can become a master balloon finder yourself. Join Mario on a massive, globe-trotting 3D adventure and use his incredible new abilities to collect Moons so you can power up your airship, the Odyssey, and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser's wedding plans! The better you are at hiding and discovering balloons, the higher on the leaderboard you will climb. Does "Sunshine" costume pieces hint at anything? Who knows if further kingdoms will be unlocked in the next year, but we certainly hope that's the case!
