Captain Toad Was Created As Miyamoto Is A Fan Of The Rubik Cube

Koichi Hayashida has revealed that Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker’s unique design was ultimately inspired by Miyamoto’s fascination with the Rubik Cube. Hayashida says that Mr Miyamoto had been thinking long and hard about how he could implement a Rubik cube style of gameplay into a video game. The end result became The Adventures of Captain Toad which featured in the critically acclaimed Super Mario 3D World. Here’s what he had to say,

“He’s a fan of the Rubik cube. And at one point he was thinking about implementing a Rubik cube-style of gameplay into a video game.” When Miyamoto saw what the team accomplished, he suggested they make Captain Toad into its own video game.”

    1. Yes. It’s called Rubik’s World. By The Game Factory. There was a Wii and DS version. Which are basically what’s commonly referred to as shovelware.

    1. So bensm93….I hear you really like the D. You a girl? Hmmmm? I saw you liking many comments involving other people who do like it.

    1. You should stfu. Don’t you have better things to do than to pose as a near inactive user? Your wife, kids, job? Or maybe you’re just a sad teenager looking for attention, consistently being the exact same poser.

      1. it’s funny because that moron known as sasori keep posting about his boring life, just check his youtube channel, he says his life is boring.

  1. I am not lord ghost, but I am indeed sad.
    I am 30, single, no wife, girlfriend or significant other. Only have 3 friends. Live with my parents and they are divorcing. I have quite a few certifications “cook, electronics, networking, computer repair” but I have no defined career path, have been a security guard for almost 10 years. Sometimes I think about ending my life. I am balding too.

    1. You can always change your life. Something times are tough. After high school, all my friends moves away and I had to get a job, and generally things weren’t too enjoyable. I never was that good at making friends, and I kind of found myself in a dark place. But you can change all those things. You can try to change things to make your life better. Life can suck, sometimes, I get it, but you can make it better. I tried being more social and tried looking at life in a positive light, and it really helped (even though it was a hard thing to do).

      Everyone can make a difference, in this world. I really think think that it you want your life to get better, you have the power to make it better, 0C70PUS.

    2. @0C70PUS,
      Believe it or not, but my life is actually worse than yours. But I’m not about to get into all of THAT crap.

    3. Try talking with new people. There are a lot of good persons that can help you no matter what troubles you have :)
      psychologists help people with depression.

    1. Don’t you get it? Wow, *snap snap* always praising Nintendo as your king, and you never see the business side of things. The Rubiks company probably paid Nintendo to advertise it cuz ya know, Nintendo is popular. *snap snap* wake up COCKADOODLE-FKN’-DOO….*snap snap snap snap snap*

  2. LMAO Rubix cubes?! I think Miyamoto is starting to lose his japanese mind. In a couple years from now Miyamoto will be in the asylum rambling about how the games industry is stagnate but Mario Kart 9 and New Super Mario Bros 5 are the most innovative games in history.

  3. I never could figure out these darn cubes. I always wanted to break them open and put the pieces where they go. In fact, I might have done that before.

        1. Same here. For example, like on the final level of Super Mario 3D World, I kept dying over and over. And I almost made it to the end but then died again. So I gave up and never went back to that level since… I’m gonna beat it one day though… >.>
