Nintendo’s given fans a sneak peek at the newly announced Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker over on the Treehouse E3 live-stream, followed by some extra information not shown in the Digital Event. Those who played Captain Toad’s mini adventures in Super Mario 3D World will have a fair idea how the puzzles work. However for those unaware, Captain Toad must be guided through a number of cubed areas, avoiding enemies in order to collect the star at the end of the level. But there’s one stipulation – Captain Toad cannot jump.
In Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker players can expect a host of brand new levels to explore by collecting gems, coins and stars. A new addition to the levels is the ability to take on bosses, with a giant dragon shown on the stream, but without any form of attack players will need to time their movements with extra care to sneak around and avoid bosses.
The Treehouse stream looked at various areas including the spooky Mystery Mansion where Boos populate the area, along with a Minecart level where manipulating the gyro controls on the Wii U GamePad is the key to level success. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will arrive in time for this year’s holiday season for the Wii U.
