Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

A pair of big announcements for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. First off, European gamers now have a release date of January 9, 2015. Australia will receive the game the following day.

Second, Toadette will be playable in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Unfortunately for Toadette fans, she won’t be playable throughout the entirety of the game. She’ll only be available during parts of it and after she’s been unlocked.

A new trailer was also revealed today. This handy video summarizes what we can expect in Captain Toad’s upcoming adventure.

The video also reveals the story in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. The two Toads managed to find their treasure, the Power Star, only to have Wingo steal it from them. Toadette was having none of that and clung to the star as Wingo flew off with it. Now Captain Toad has to track down the greedy avian to get his treasure back and find Toadette.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is coming to the Wii U on November 13 for Japan, December 5 in North America, January 9th in Europe, and January 10th in Australia. Check out some new pics with Toadette in action below.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
