Luigi’s Balloon World update for Super Mario Odyssey

Luigi’s Balloon World Update was announced earlier this year by Nintendo. A free update for Super Mario Odyssey, featuring the other half of Team Mario. Earlier today, information regarding the update was leaked. While the update wasn’t due to sometime later this week or next week, you know how news spreads. And apparently, Nintendo to keen on having anyone leak it’s upcoming news.
