Super Mario Odyssey update will add minigame and other cool features

While it's not a Season Pass announcement Super Mario Odyssey will still be getting plenty of post-launch support it looks like, with today's sudden Nintendo Direct Mini revealing a Balloon World minigame and confirmation of new outfits. In the "find it" mode, the tables turn and you have the same amount of time to try to find all of the balloons other players have hidden. In the "hide it" mode, you race against the 30-second timer to conceal balloons in the hardest to find places on the board.

Once the free update has been downloaded and players have completed the main story, Balloon World will become available. Players can move up the rankings** by finding hidden balloons and becoming expert hiders.




Super Mario Odyssey's free update comes in February 2018. Beyond bragging rights, you can earn a tidy sum of coins by performing well in Luigi's Balloon Land.

A set of three new amiibo figures-Mario, Princess Peach and Bowser in their wedding outfits-will be released at launch. The update will also feature new filters for photo mode. Here are the Sunshine Shades and Sunshine Outfit, the Musician Hat and Musician Outfit, and the Knight Helmet and Armor.
