On the Nintendo 3DS side is SteamWorld Dig 2, which lets players explore mines and underground tunnels in search of an old trading town that’s been struck by a mysterious earthquake.

As for the big Super Mario Odyssey update, on Feb. 22 the new game mode Balloon World allows players to hide or find balloons in any of the kingdoms of the critically acclaimed title. Players will need to have completed the main story of Super Mario Odyssey to access this free game mode, but once they do, a whole new world of hide and seek will open to them. The new free update also adds new outfits for Mario and filters to use in Snapshot mode, so get out there and take some pictures.

There’s a bunch of new software for the Nintendo Switch and 3DS coming out this week and early next. Here’s a list of all the new software that Nintendo fans can expect.
