This looks like a little gem of a Wii U game. While it’s releasing on December 5th in the US, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker won’t land on European shores until January 9th 2015. Still, that’s something for you to purchase early into next year.
The game takes the mini-levels from Super Mario 3D World and expands them into a full title, with Captain Toad exploring isometric levels based on the series, collecting stars as he goes. There’s a new Japanese gameplay trailer below, showing Captain Toadette and some of the power-ups.
Looks fun, doesn’t it? Hopefully there’s a lot of variety from level to level, as you’d expect from a Nintendo game. We previewed the game after playing it earlier this year.
