Luigi’s Balloon World update for Super Mario Odyssey on track for release this week

Luigi’s Balloon World was announced for Super Mario Odyssey in January. When it was revealed, Nintendo mentioned that the feature would be added through a free update this month. February is almost over, but it looks like Nintendo will be holding true to its promise.
Nintendo Australia has a new post on its website dated for February 23, indicating that the update is now live. Obviously that isn’t the case as that day has yet to actually pass. Still, this should mean the update will be out before the end of the week.
Aside from Luigi’s Balloon World, the patch will include Sunshine, Musician, and Knight Armor outfits that will be available soon after players complete the main story. Coin and Neon are also the only new Snapshot Mode filters. You can see this below.

A few Nintendo-published games have seen DLC over the past year. Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Fire Emblem Warriors are among the titles that have received new content following release.
One game not included in that is Super Mario Odyssey. The game is getting a free update, but actual paid DLC has not yet been announced. Nintendo isn’t against the idea, however.

Random Talking Bush, someone known for picking apart games, has started digging through the files and code for Super Mario Odyssey. Among what was discovered, the game appears to have cut / unused content.
The first interesting find concerns unused 2D coins:
And unused 2D coins for the Metro Kingdom, apparently, which only come in "collected" form (CoinCollectEmpty2D_E), and don't have a colourized counterpart. pic.twitter.com/bRrMAXmG1V

A few more details about the new Balloon World mini-game in Super Mario Odyssey, more outfits to be added in the future
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 9 Comments | 0 Likes
One of the big announcements from this month’s Nintendo Direct was news about a February update for Super Mario Odyssey. This is highlighted by the addition of the new Balloon World mini-game.
Once you complete the main story, Luigi will appear in the different kingdoms and you can partake in “Hide It” and “Find It” modes. These two let you hide and find balloons, of course.
In “Hide It”, ratings are given for:
– Amount of obtained coins
– Times you have played with the balloons
And in “Find It”, ratings are given for:
– Amount of obtained coins
– Total amount of discovered balloons
– Streak number for balloons discovered in short time
While playing Balloon World, each kingdom may have weather or time changes. For example, as shown in the Nintendo Direct Mini, New Donk City may have rain or Tostarena may have a sunset.
Balloon World isn’t the only aspect of the update, as Nintendo is introducing new outfits and Snapshot Mode filters as well. One interesting thing Nintendo states is that more costumes are planned to be added in February and beyond, so it looks like we can look forward to even more in the future.
