Nintendo announced a free update coming to Super Mario Odyssey. The January 11th Nintendo Direct featured the first look at “Luigi’s Balloon World”. Once players have beaten Super Mario Odyssey and download the free update, the new Balloon based challenge will be available.

Luigi’s Balloon World is an online component featuring 2 different competitive modes: “Hide It Mode” and “Find It Mode”. In Hide It Mode you will have 30 seconds to hid a balloon in various Kingdoms. In Find It Mode, you will have 30 seconds to find balloons hidden by other Super Mario Odyssey players around the world. As you find balloons you earn points to move up in a global leaderboard.

Along with the Balloon World content, the update will also include new Snapshot filters and new costumes. The free update will be coming to Super Mario Odyssey in February.
