The long hoped for Nintendo Direct was dropped on us like a Beyoncé album this morning and with it, among lots of other insane news, came the announcement of a free update to Super Mario Odyssey.

Once the free update has been downloaded and players have completed the main story, Balloon World will become available.

The update will also include some new outfits for Mario to wear on his journeys through the different kingdoms. In "Find It" mode, players have the same amount of time to locate balloons hidden by other players from around the world.
