Super Mario 3D World for the Nintendo Wii U introduced us to Captain Toad and his mini-puzzles. Our kids really loved trying to solve those puzzles! We later purchased Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Wii U… a game full of Captain Toad’s mini-puzzles. It’s a perfect blend of challenge and fun.
We now own the Nintendo Switch version, and once again our kids are in a puzzle-solving mood! It’s fun for me to watch our 5-year-old use strategy and brain power to solve these fun puzzles. Since our kids love the game so much, we plan to buy the Special Episode expansion. See details on the expansion below!
About Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
Captain Toad stars in his own puzzling quest on the Nintendo Switch™ system! Our stubby hero must dodge dangers and track treasures across many trap-filled courses.
Survive smoldering volcanoes, hazardous steam engines, haunted houses, and even new courses based on the Super Mario Odyssey™ game! Luckily, a second player can join in by tossing turnips at enemies.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Play anytime, anywhere, and anyway you want—even in two-player mode using a pair of Joy-Con™ controllers on one Nintendo Switch system—in TV mode or Tabletop mode. You could also play alone in handheld mode! No matter what, explore each puzzling course for treasure, like hidden Super Gems and Power Stars.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Special Episode
As of February 13th, 2019, you can purchase the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Special Episode DLC to continue your journey with eighteen new challenges, including five brand-new courses.
Purchase and download this content before March 14th for early access to one of the courses! The remainder of the DLC will be available on March 14th. Naturally, you can play all of the courses with a friend or alone.
Either way, you’ll dodge dangers and track treasures across many trap-filled miniature worlds; some are even based on the Super Mario Odyssey™ game!
As you reclaim the treasure stolen by the monstrous, greedy bird, Wingo, you’ll eventually be able to play as Toadette! These tiny heroes must waddle, hide, pluck, chuck, and power-up through enemy-infested locales like towers, wild-west shanties, and Goomba waterparks—all bursting with secrets. Aim your head-mounted flashlight at adventure!
