‘Super Mario Odyssey’ gets free update with new Balloon World mode

Super Mario Odyssey free update

One of the best games of 2017 just received its first major update since launching last year. On Wednesday evening, Nintendo released a free update for Super Mario Odyssey that adds a new post-game Luigi's Balloon World mode, a few new outfits for Mario to collect, and new filters for the game's Snapshot Mode.

In order to access Luigi's challenges, you'll need to install the update and beat the main story. Once you've finished the game, Luigi will begin appearing in different kingdoms, offering Mario new challenges to complete. In the "Hide It" mode, Mario will be tasked with hiding a balloon somewhere around the kingdom where other players aren't likely to find. Then in the "Find It" mode, Mario has to find balloons that other players have hidden.

Nintendo finally answers the tough questions… about Mario’s nipples and belly button

Mario Nipples and Belly Button

Why does Mario have nipples but no belly button? That’s what Super Mario Odyssey gamers really want to know about the hit Nintendo Switch game. 
Thankfully, Nintendo has finally addressed the question in an interview. But don't get too excited. A belly button isn't necessarily in the works, although Nintendo is considering the design change.

Nintendo Switch has already outsold the entire Wii U run

Enlarge / Do the math! (credit: Nintendo)

Earnings reports began appearing for a number of video game companies on Tuesday, and with those came Nintendo's unsurprising confirmation that its Switch hardware is doing quite well. Now we know exactly how well: it needed less than 10 months to surpass its predecessor, the Wii U, in worldwide sales.

Nintendo's latest earning report includes a breakdown of lifetime hardware sales for the Nintendo Switch, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS family of consoles. Its "as of December 31, 2017" figure places the Nintendo Switch at a current lifetime sales count of 14.86 million units, surpassing the 13.56 million Wii U units sold in a little over five years. The Nintendo 3DS (and its 2DS and "New" variants) have combined to sell 71.99 million pieces of hardware since launching nearly seven years ago.

Originally, Nintendo had told its shareholders to expect first-year Switch sales of 10 million; the company revised that estimate in October, following its last earnings report, to a first-year tally of 14 million worldwide. That has now been exceeded a little earlier than expected. The traditionally slow game-hardware months of January and February will likely pad the Switch's first true 12 months of sales data, if only a bit, due to a lack of major or exclusive Nintendo software during that span of time. Nintendo fans will have to wait until March for a new Kirby game and April for the weird, build-your-own-cardboard experiment of Nintendo Labo.

Nintendo reveals new Switch games, DLC and more in long-awaited January Direct

Nintendo Direct January

For months, Nintendo fans have been anxiously awaiting another Direct live stream to see what the company has in store for 2018. Rumors and speculation had been running rampant, especially throughout this week, but on Thursday morning, Nintendo finally unleashed a pre-recorded Nintendo Direct Mini, featuring over a dozen announcements for the Switch that should satisfy fans who weren't sure what to expect from the company in 2018.

The 15-minute video kicks off with a surprising revelation: The World Ends with You, one of the cult hits of the DS era, is being remastered with HD visuals and a new epilogue for the Switch. This unique RPG from Square Enix never got its due when it launched in 2008, so it's exciting to see it being revived a decade later.

21 years later, ‘Super Mario Odyssey’ is the sequel to ‘Super Mario 64’ I’d been dreaming about

Depending on who you ask, Super Mario 64 is one of the most important video games ever released. It set the stage for the past two decades of 3D action games and created so much goodwill among Nintendo fans that they were even willing to forgive the company for the Wii U and give the Switch a chance. For all of these reasons and more, it never made sense to me why Super Mario 64 felt like a one-off in the franchise rather than a platform.

Super Mario Sunshine was the first true follow-up to Super Mario 64, and although it shared a great deal in common with its predecessor, Mario was weighed down (both physically and metaphorically) by F.L.U.D.D. -- a backpack that is capable of spraying streams of water for both combat and traversal. But for all its strengths and weaknesses, it was the closest we ever got to a sequel to the Nintendo 64 entry that defined a generation.
