So if most of you saw the nintendo direct today, you noticed they mentioned a free update for the game coming soon. This will have a mini game that has you playing with others online... how? By hiding balloons and finding balloons. To be honest, I don't have the game, and probably wasn't gonna until the price was reduced (Maybe nintendo selects $20) or something below $30, but anyway is not important. That didn't seem to be too appealing to me. So I wanted to just share a idea I had that could maybe been a better use of a new mini game or something. I remember playing assassins creed 3 on ps3, it had this online mode where you play against other players by doing the same kind of stuff you do in the main game. You hide from a player with disguises and try to hunt others. Your target to hunt is not the same person trying to hunt you. My idea is kinda similar. In this game mode, one player uses Cappy to capture a object or person/creature, then other players try to find them within the time limit. Basically I came up with this so quickly that I didn't bother to see if something like this had been done. Turns out there is a game similar to what I described, is called prop hunt, and is something you play in one of those steam source engine maker games like garry's mod. Though I'm shock something like this exist already, I was thinking that the idea I had for a multiplayer game mode would maybe be better than a balloon hunting. The way the video show cases it seem like you don't really play with other people as in at the same time. You just get 30 seconds to hide the balloon and then anyone can just go and grab it in a time trial speedrun like manner. My idea is to have multiple people play with each other, but then would it be silly to see a bunch of marios running around looking for another hiding with cappy's powers? Anyway is just a idea, if anyone has some ideas of their own or think they can improve mine a bit, share them in the comments below. Are you happy with the new mini game that will be coming soon or disappointed?
