Official PR - A free update soars to Super Mario Odyssey!

The Super Mario Odyssey™ game received an exciting free update today. Let’s start with Luigi’s Balloon World.

Luigi’s Balloon World

After downloading the update and beating the main story, Luigi will now show up in different kingdoms to give Mario a new challenge. To start Balloon World (Internet access required)*, seek out the green-clad bro and have a nice chat with him. There are two modes in Balloon World: “Hide It” mode lets you hide a balloon somewhere in that kingdom, while “Find It” mode challenges you to find balloons hidden by other players from around the world. If you get good at hiding and finding balloons, you’ll also move up the online rankings!

New Outfits and Filters

Balloon World isn’t the only update today: new outfits for Mario and new filters for Snapshot Mode have also been added. There are a couple different options so be sure to check them all out! Hopefully the new gold coin filter will lead to a gold mine of new photo ops.

We hope you enjoy these new updates. And if you haven’t purchased the game yet, please visit the Super Mario Odyssey official site for more info.

Super Mario Odyssey - Luigi's secret dialog

Depending on the outfits Mario is wearing, Luigi will offer up some different dialog when you talk with him. If you don't want those snippets spoiled, don't watch the video above!

Random Time! - Dozens of Cricket fans dress as Mario and Luigi

I have no idea why everyone is dressed like Mario and Luigi. I also don't know if that gorilla is a sad attempt at Donkey Kong, or just some guy who wanted to be a gorilla. I clearly don't know enough about cricket...but now I want to learn.

Thanks to ThisBoyWillBreak for the heads up!
