Super Mario Odyssey's Balloon World Update Is Out Now

Super Mario Odyssey's Balloon World Update Is Out Now

And in addition to Balloon World, Nintendo is serving up new outfits for Mario and new filters for Snapshot Mode, one of which is a gold coin that "will lead to a gold mine of new photo ops". To get into balloon world you just have to hunt Luigi down in whatever kingdom you're in and chat to him to get started.

It's all quite simple. As described in its debut trailer (during that secret mini Direct) you'll need to hide and find balloons, competing with other players in an asynchronous fashion.

Finding or hiding balloons successfully will award points which increases your rank.

Luigi's Balloon World is a free update for Super Mario Odyssey, and it also includes new Outfits for Mario and new Filters for Snapshot Mode. That's because the new - and completely free - first dlc for the Nintendo Switch smash hit game looks like it's coming later today. Outfits don't have any effect on gameplay, but you happen to be a completionist, you now have a few more collectables to acquire in Super Mario Odyssey.

The most recent was last week at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida, where a gunman killed 17. The Dallas City Council member owns guns and thinks his constituents have the right to do so, too.

Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch has also received a whole batch of new outfits for Mario to make use of. He gets particularly confused, in fact, when his brother is wearing the same outfit as himself. As it doesn't rely on AI to do the job, the task is pretty hard and you should have a thorough knowledge of each kingdom so as to find all the hidden balloons.

As it's a mini-game that involves online ranking tables and other players you'll have to be connected to the internet in order to play it.

Here's how the Luigi's Balloon World minigame works. In an interesting move, likely to combat the cheaters who have broken the Jump-Rope Challenge scoreboard, the speed of the jump rope will change after 110 jumps, and the challenge itself has been adjust so rankings for all players have been reset in terms of World Rankings and Friend Rankings.
