Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo’s latest release of the undying Mario franchise is set to get a new competitive multiplayer mode for the title. This time Luigi takes the spotlight with this hide and seek game mode.

During the “Hiding Mode” player have to hide a special balloon somewhere in the world stage they are currently playing in. You’ll have to be quick though as You only have 30 seconds, so you’d better know some nice locations that no one else knows about.
