Balloon World is the most intriguing new feature, not least because it adds Luigi to the game, albeit as a quest giver rather than a playable character. This will include The Sunshine, Musician and Knight Armor.

And there are two new Snapshot filters for customising your own pics taken in the game.

Super Mario Odyssey is available for Nintendo Switch.

The Nintendo Australia website momentarily showed a listing saying the new free update would be available for download this Friday, February 23. More new outfits are planned to be added, so stay tuned to the Nintendo Australia Twitter account for more information.

A free update is due to arrive to Super Mario Odyssey on Thursday, 22nd February. In "Hide It" mode, players have a limited amount of time to hide a balloon, while in "Find It" mode, players have the same period of time to locate balloons hidden by other players from around the world.

These challenges will be timed and the environments will experience weather changes while the mode is in play.

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

In addition, extra outfits are now available for Mario to wear - the Sunshine, Musician and Knight Armour clothing - which, again, become available after the main story is finished.
