While Super Mario Odyssey by no means lacks content, the overall success of the game has players hoping Nintendo will expand the experience further. There have been small additions to the game recently, but Odyssey producer Yoshiaki Koizumi says full-length DLC is something that could also happen in the future.
In the upcoming March issue of Game Informer (via Gaming Bolt), Koizumi discussed the substantial number of collectibles and quests already packed into the Nintendo Switch game but hinted at the possibility of creating more for the adventure.
There’s a lot of volume in Super Mario Odyssey. That was a big focus in development: give the player loads to do. We pushed ourselves to create as much as we could. I can’t announce anything specifically today, but of course, if there was a really cool idea for us to do, then we would certainly be thinking about DLC.
Players were recently given a slight expansion in the form of Luigi’s Balloon World, which introduced online ranking possibilities. The developers also created new outfits, but as far as a significant update, Nintendo hasn’t confirmed any to be coming. It wouldn’t be too shocking, though, to see Odyssey get extra content, for several reasons.
For one, Nintendo has already done it with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Two sets of DLC are currently available for the open-world adventure, with both expanding the story and introducing new gameplay elements. Second, with Odyssey‘s current format of visiting new lands, collecting Power Moons, and buying new outfits, it’s easy to see how the developers could introduce traditional DLC packages to the game. Whether making new areas to visit or offering more collectibles to hunt down, Mario’s travels could be far from over.
Outside of general excitement at the possibility of DLC, it would be a no-brainer for Nintendo. The company recently revealed Odyssey is now officially the best-selling game on the Switch, making it the perfect title to continue supporting.
