Original story is below.
It looks as though the Super Mario Odyssey Balloon World update is coming to Switch this week.
The Nintendo Australia website momentarily showed a listing saying the new free update would be available for download this Friday, February 23.
IGN has reached out to Nintendo for comment on this information.
Announced last month for a February release, the update boasts a new mini-game mode called Balloon World which unlocks after completing the main story. Players will need to find Luigi in each world to begin either hiding or finding balloons hidden by other players.
These challenges will be timed and the environments will experience weather changes while the mode is in play. Additionally, getting high scores for hiding or finding balloons will allow players to rank up for bragging rights.
The update also includes new outfits and snapshot filters and Nintendo added that more new outfits will be released in the future. For a full list of all the outfits currently available or to get help finding all the power moons check out our wiki guide.
