Hovering frog glitch removed.
While the latest update for Super Mario Odyssey added Luigi’s Balloon World, it also patched out several glitches, including a major one used by speedrunners.
As detailed in our Super Mario Odyssey cheats and secrets guide, prior to the update, players could perform a trick where they capture a frog mid-air with Cappy and find themselves hovering in a glitched swimming position. Speedrunners took advantage of this glitch to quickly clear the game’s Darker Side area.
IGN can verify Luigi’s Balloon World update has removed this glitch from the game.
Head over to our Mario Odyssey wiki guide to check out some of the tricks and glitches that haven’t yet been removed, as well as Easter Eggs, a comprehensive walkthrough, location guides for all of the Power Moons and Purple Coins, and more.
