Nintendo Reveals Information About Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Special Episode DLC

Guess who’s ready for more adventure? The turnip-throwing explorer Captain Toad, that’s who! The Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Special Episode DLC, coming to the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker game for the Nintendo Switch system on March 14, offers a treasure chest full of Toad-ally great new content.

The DLC contains 18 new challenges among five creative new courses. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Special Episode is available for $5.99, and anyone who pre-purchases the new downloadable content directly in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch now will have access to Shifty Shrine, the first of the five new courses. The remaining DLC will become available on March 14.

On Feb. 13, a free update to the game also added Partner Adventure Mode, a two-player co-op mode that lets players explore every course in the game together with a friend. Now players can team up as Captain Toad and Toadette or Captain Toad and Purple Captain Toad to solve puzzles together in both the base game and DLC.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker finds Captain Toad dodging dangers and tracking treasure across many trap-filled courses. Each course is like its own puzzle box, filled with tricky obstacles, dangerous enemies and hidden secrets. Throughout the expanded adventure, Captain Toad and fellow explorers Toadette and Purple Captain Toad will make their way through volcanoes, jungles and even haunted houses. The game is perfect for players looking for a puzzling adventure that they can play at home or on the go.

  1. 2018 would not have been more fun without Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

    The game has very good and reasonably expansive bonus levels.

    And it would be great to have more though.

    And what do you know, guess there will be a Special Episode DLC.

    It’s about time.

  3. Okay, straight up question here, I really didn’t like the Captain Toad levels in Super Mario 3D World.
    Should I skip this game or does it really improve on them?

    1. I would say that it definitely improves on the levels. The puzzles are clever and a lot of fun to play in my opinion. On the other hand, if you didn’t like the CT levels in 3D World, then a game entirely based off them probably isn’t for you.

  4. I’m kind of disappointed that they didn’t use Blue Toad, after all in Super Mario Bros. 2 it was Blue Toad who completed the famous 4 character squad, which he later returned to do so again in Super Mario 3D World, not to mention he was there for the bros. in both New Super Mario Bros. Wii and New Super Mario Bros. U (which he was later unjustly replaced by Toadette instead of replacing Yellow Toad…) so that “Purple Cpt. Toad would have been a better fit if it was Blue Toad instead…

    But that’s just my opinion, in the end is just a minor detail which i think it would have been cool to keep in homage to the past games where Blue Toad was a main character.
