Video: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker Graphics Comparison Nintendo Switch Versus Wii U

The puzzle game initially debuted in 2014 and is launching on July 13 for Nintendo’s latest console. The upcoming release includes some new content that can’t be found in the original, but it largely remains the same. To see a graphics comparison between the two versions, check out the video below:

  1. I still think it’s weird we got a port of Captain Toad on the Switch before Pikmin 3. If that and Xenoblade X gets a Switch port as well I’m not really sure I’ll have any further reason to keep my Wii U.

    1. Keep it. One day the Wii U will be the next Saturn or Dreamcast and fetch a pretty penny. I could see the resell value of working GamePads alone being pretty high. Box it up and leave it alone for a few years. That’s what I’m going to do.

    2. I guess Toad is easier to port from a dual-screen experience onto one.
      It’s not like it’s impossible to just make the Map of P3 a separate Screen, but it just might be more work. And Toad really feels like a Gameboy-game in 3D. It’s good for sessions and good for the portability.

      And in the end, both games might not have been huge cash cows. Not that I wouldn’t prefer P3 myself, but it’s just way more complex and thus I’m sure it requires just more effort (and budget) to port.

      1. That being said, I don’t really understand why they didn’t port 3D world first. Would have enabled them to keep the 3D world-levels in TT.
        Plus 3D world sold 5 mio copies on WiiU, so a port could easily sell 1-2 Million units. But I mean, we all know they’re gonna bring this game, maybe they just wait a bit more when people get hungry for Mario again and the Switch-installbase has increased which also means more units.

  2. Game no one wanted? I was asking for that game the moment I played those levels in 3d world. I freaked out when it was announced back in the wii u era.

    1. Lol, this game sold 1,4 Million copies (according to on a system that sold about 13 Mio units in total.
      Doesn’t sound like a game noone wants to me. It’s as if it sold over 14 Million units on Wii.

  3. This game oozes charm and while I missed the one on Wii U, I will not make that mistake again. Shame the MARIO 3D world stages are not there so that keeps the Wii U version relevant as a collectors item so all you with the Wii U version, hold on to it !

    1. I think it’s for market strategy. Think about most Wii U games are ported to the Switch with additional contents, for example Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has all the DLC so why people should buy the Wii U version where you have to buy both DLC packs? Only for the free online? Now coming back to Captain Toad why there aren’t the Wii U levels in? Because you can distinguish the games by the levels and there can be someone who will buy both versions just for the levels

      But that’s just a theory A GAME TH… Oh sorry wrong quote
