I just wonder what is next… a port of Super Mario 3D World, or an Odyssey-filled Treasure Tracker sequel? In any case, nearly four years later I still find myself “ready for adventure”! If you missed this game on Wii U (and far too many did) don’t let it pass you by again. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is great on any Nintendo system. Don’t take my word for it, try the demo for yourself.
If you own a Switch then there’s no real decision to be made here: Captain Toad is still far and away better on Nintendo’s latest system. That’s not to say the 3DS version is a write-off, though, because that’s far from the case. As seemingly one of the final few big-name releases for the system, Captain Toad pushes it to its limits to produce easily one of the best-looking 3DS games ever made.
Treasure Tracker still feels close to unique, and gains new life on both of Nintendo’s current systems. Switch is very much the better choice, but 3DS is by no means a bad option. Still smart, prettier than ever and, in retrospect, genuinely important as part of Nintendo’s modern history, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a rare example of a game that actually feels better for being a few years old.
