The free Super Mario Odyssey update is available now

We love Mario a whole lot but sometimes you just need a bit of Luigi action, and that's exactly what Super Mario Odyssey's new mini-game will bring.

A now-removed post on Nintendo Australia's website has potentially revealed the release date, and surprise!

Super Mario Odyssey's first content update might be coming tomorrow
New Super Mario Odyssey Update 1.2.0 Released; Adds Balloon World Mini-Game Alongside Improvements to Gameplay

The main feature this new update adds is Luigi's Balloon Flight, a minigame available to anyone who has completed the main story, where Luigi appears in each and every world. Conversely, "Find It" mode let's you track down other balloons hidden by players from across the globe.

Nintendo has released Super Mario Odyssey update 1.2.0 for the Nintendo Switch, which introduces the "Balloon World" mini-game alongside various gameplay improvements. The two new Snapshot filters, meanwhile, are Coin and Neon. If you get good at hiding and finding balloons, you'll also move up the online rankings! While playing Balloon World, the atmosphere will change for each kingdom: for example, it might be raining in New Donk City, or the sun might be setting in Tostarena. Along with the new mode, there's also two new filters to use when taking screenshots in the Snapshot Mode. More new outfits are planned to be added, so stay tuned to the Nintendo Australia Twitter account for more information. The update also offers new filters for Snapshot mode, new outfits, and more.
