super mario odyssey

Nintendo has built up a stellar Switch library loaded with great titles across many genres, including future classics The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Several of the best Switch games have had their shelf life extended through DLC, like Splatoon 2, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Breath of the Wild. Unfortunately, not every great Switch game has enjoyed post-launch DLC, including some that definitely could have used it. Other titles, meanwhile, did not receive enough DLC. What Switch game do you wish had received a little more love post-launch? Maybe you wanted a bit more adventuring in Octopath Traveler, perhaps you had high hopes for more Super Mario Party boards, or maybe you really, really wanted an Isle Delfino Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. I fall into that last camp.

While Super Mario Odyssey already had an incredible base package – good enough to become my second favorite Nintendo game ever – it has missed out on the potential for some challenging extra kingdoms. Odyssey‘s base game is just so easy, but a lot of the later moons really took advantage of creative captures, puzzling environmental challenges, and absurdly tough platforming. When the credits finally rolled, I found myself craving more.

I also wanted more retro experiences similar to Odyssey’s most fantastic post-game kingdom – you know the one. A super tough package of five or so more kingdoms, including a Super Mario Sunshine throwback, would have been fantastic. I was very, very satisfied with Super Mario Odyssey, but it could have been so much more. Unless a sequel is eventually confirmed, I’ll forever be disappointed in the lack of real DLC beyond simple costumes and Luigi’s Balloon World.

What Switch game do you wish had more DLC? Were you craving more Super Mario Odyssey kingdoms like me? Are you perfectly content with a never-ending stream of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters? Did you want even more bonus shrines in Breath of the Wild? Sound off in the comments.
