E3 2014 Nintendo - Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

Buried in the Nintendo of America press release regarding the worldwide sales of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS as well as the announced release date of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U came an important tidbit for another Nintendo game, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. The puzzle game that was announced back at E3 2014 was initially given a release window of Holiday 2014. As of yesterday, the North American release became much more specific as NOA announced that Captain Toad will be coming to North America on December 5th.

From the press release:

Never one to be overlooked, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was a critical and crowd favorite during the E3 Expo video game trade show in June. The game launches Dec. 5 at a suggested retail price of $39.99 and lets players take control of intrepid explorer Captain Toad as he sets off on adventures like exploring a haunted house or escaping a smoldering volcano. Even though Toad characters have appeared in video games since the original Super Mario Bros. game on NES, this is the first time that one of them gets top billing. The game will also support select amiibo figures in 2015.

Currently, there is no release date for either Europe or Australia. We will let you know when those dates get announced.
