Luigi’s balloon world is a new, asynchronous multiplayer mode. One player has 30 seconds to hide balloons on a game level. Later, another player is then challenged to find the hidden balloons for a coin prize.
The three costumes in the game are a “musician outfit” (a reddish suit and hat), a Mario sunshine themed resort outfit and a set of knight armor. All of these outfits can be purchased from the in-game store with coins like any other outfit in the game. The update also added two new filters called Coin and Neon.
This update was first previewed in a January and is rumored to not to be the last update of this type for the popular Mario game. Coin makes everything appear as if stamped on a coin, and Neon is a psychedelic outline mode for your in-game screen grabs.
The Luigi’s Balloon world mini-game promise to bring interesting challenges to the Mario gaming, joining the popular Racing mini-game in the game that has a strong niche following on gaming streams showing off the best times.
