Hide and seek for Mario and Luigi.

Super Mario Odyssey is receiving a new competitive mode called Luigi's Balloon World. After completing the main story, players will be able to speak to Luigi in stages to start the competitive modes. Hide It mode will give the player 30 seconds to hide a balloon within a stage. Find It is the opposite giving you 30 seconds to find the balloon hidden by other players. Doing well in these new modes will increase a player's rank on online leader boards.

New outfits and camera filters are coming to Super Mario Odyssey. Costumes include Sunshine Shades & Outfit, Musician Hat & Outfit, and Knight Helmet & Armor. Both the new competitive modes and costumes will be available as a free download this February.

Or, and hear me out, let me play as Luigi like in the Galaxy games.

Seriously, I came in here to say the same thing. Luigi has been playable in every Mario game since 2006's New Super Mario Bros., so his absence in Odyssey is very strange.

It’s called Super Mario Odyssey for a reason, chumps.

That being said, Luigi has never been playable in the first version of any of the collect-a-thon Mario titles.

Mario Galaxy is not a collect-a-thon.

Nice to see some DLC for the people who still haven't gotten their fill after 999 moons.

If the mode is fun and addictive to play, perhaps this could extend the life of the game in a GTA V Online sort of way (smaller scale, of course). Smart way to give DLC to the game, since so many said that it wouldn't make much sense to simply add more moons to a game that already has so many.
