Balloon World Competitive Mini-Game


An update next month for Super Mario Odyssey will bring some new cool add-on features to the game, Nintendo announced Tuesday. In "Find It", you have 30 seconds to find other players' balloons. In the "hide it" mode, you race against the 30-second timer to conceal balloons in the hardest to find places on the board. It's not a new kingdom or anything wild and expansive like that, but it is a new competitive mini-game that does look pretty fun and fits in very well with what makes playing Super Mario Odyssey enjoyable: exploration.

Once the free update has been downloaded and players have completed the main story, Balloon World will become available. Balloon World starts by finding Luigi in any given world, from there they can choose hide it or find it mode. Players will be ranked by their ability to find and hide balloons, trying to set the highest scores they possibly can. What do you think of Balloon Mode?

Expect freezing rain, snow Wednesday night into Thursday
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies and above average temperatures develop, with a milder low temperature of 52 degrees. Saturday , snow likely before 7 a.m., then snow showers likely, mainly between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m.

In addition, Nintendo will add three new outfits to the game: Sunshine Shades and outfit, a Musician Hat and outfit, and a Knight Helmet and armor. Who knows if further kingdoms will be unlocked in the next year, but we certainly hope that's the case!
