Super Mario Odyssey

Last month, Nintendo released a major Software update for Super Mario Odyssey, adding the Balloon World mini-game. But it looks like something else was also added… more Hint Art! And unlike those already in the game, those new pieces of Hint Art can be found… on the internet, not in-game!

Earlier this week, Nintendo shared a new one via Twitter:

Have you found it already?

Speaking of Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo recently made some “adjustments” to the list of ballons for the “Find It!” part of the Balloon World mini-game. No explanation was provided, but it most likely was done to remove ballons that were hidden in out-of-bounds places by unfair players.
