It seems Super Mario Odyssey‘s latest Luigi’s Balloon World update contained possible hints of future content hidden away. In particular, data miners have uncovered files referencing costumes for Mario themed after the Broodal bosses.
Data mining enthusiast SciresM posted the finding to Twitter, which breaks down the new additions to the game’s backend, as well as the removal of the previously found Link costume. While disappointing to see the Zelda reference pulled, fans will likely jump at the chance to get looks from the four main rabbit enemies featured in Odyssey.
While no images were found in the mining of the game, descriptions for each piece of clothing offer an idea of what to expect. Sadly, it seems the abilities of the baddies’ original outfits won’t be infused into the Mario versions.
- Hariet Hat: A hat you should not wear until after thoroughly checking it for explosives.
- Hariet Suit: An outwardly lovely gown, the interior structure has rotted away and is holding on by a thread.
- Rango Hat: A near-perfect replica of Rango’s hat… except for the awesome saw blades and trampoline capability. Sigh…
- Rango Suit: A humble outfit that does the job effectively, if not glamorously. Or efficiently. Or smartly. Or even not-dumbly.
- Spewart Hat: A hat you should definitely wash thoroughly before wearing, given Spewart’s… hobbies.
- Spewart Suit: An outfit that reminds one of school days—of reading, of writing, and of full-body finger painting.
- Topper Hat: A hat that practically demands to be stacked up on top of identical copies of itself and swung dangerously about.
- Topper Suit: A cheap knockoff of a fancy, tailored suit. Smells of carrots and broken promises.
It’s unclear if and when we’ll see these costumes, but for now, the concept is intriguing. Previously data-mined outfits were also found again in the latest job, including Baseball, Conductor, Santa, Racing, Satellaview, and Zombie.
Apart from February’s update offering the Luigi-themed online ranked mini-game, new costumes were also added. Players can now get the Musician, Sunshine, and Knight outfits. As far as future content goes, we’ll likely see more duds added to the game, and if another recent data mining job is to be believed, more Power Moons. Full DLC could also be in Odyssey‘s future, as the game’s producer recently teased the development team is open to expanding the adventure.
Super Mario Odyssey is available for the Nintendo Switch.
