- Equipped with nothing more than a neck scarf, backpack and oversized head lamp, Captain Toad finds hidden gems, coins and power-ups on his way to the gold star at the end of each tricky, trap-filled stage
- Captain Toad isn't particularly fast or strong. He can't jump and he has no super powers. But he knows that sometimes, it's all about wits and perspective
- Twist the camera to reveal hidden locations and other secrets. The Wii U GamePad offers a closer view of the dangers and hidden items in each maze, and its gyro controls can also be used to peer around
- Captain Toad's world is brimming with life, with dangerous enemies, tricky platforms, nasty traps and secrets to uncover. Each stage is its own puzzle to solve, and littered throughout are hidden items in hard-to-reach places. Can you help our tiny adventurer survive to find them all?
About time Toad got the spotlight! The upcoming quirky WiiU adventure/puzzle/platformer title Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is coming out this December 5th! With a colorful and quirky world to explore, it looks like Nintendo are making the Wii U even more appealing this holiday season!
The gameplay model was first introduced by the Adventures of Captain Toad minigame found within Super Mario 3D World but will now take the form of a full fledged adventure, where the basic objective is to safely navigate through various obstacles in order to reach all that lovely treasure! Our Mushroom Captain takes a unique approach to the platforming genre as he has the ability to walk and run but lacks the ability to jump, instead requiring players to manipulate the camera to find all the secret nooks and crannys across the map! The game makes use of the Wii U GamePad's features, as the player can touch the screen to manipulate platforms, as well as use gyroscopic controls to aim in certain sections of the game!
With Captain Toad leading the way, this Nintendo spinoff offers a surprising amount of gameplay variation and should be a welcomed addition by almost anyone who enjoyed Super Mario 3D World, or platforming games in general!
