There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that
Super Mario Odyssey was one of the best games of 2017. Quality of the game aside, Odyssey proved to be real task for completionists, requiring a whopping 999 Power Moons to be collected. Even if you aren’t going for the full 100%, Odyssey still offers a very large content volume, with a large chunk of it being locked until after you finish the game. With all this content already available, you might not expect that Nintendo would consider DLC, but as the game’s producer Yoshiaki Koizumi points out, it isn’t entirely out of the question.
Speaking with Game Informer, Koizumi emphasized Nintendo’s desire to put as much as they could into Odyssey. Despite this existing volume, Koizumi also says that the development team would certainly be open for more content, given the right idea:
“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.” — Yoshiaki Koizumi
Nintendo has already provided some updates to
Super Mario Odyssey, such as the newly added Luigi’s Balloon World, so more main game content definitely seems like a possibility. It just remains to be seen what that content would entail. Could we see Luigi added as a playable character? A new story focusing on the Broodals? There are lots of possibilities, so let us know what you’d like to see come to Odyssey, if any, below!
