Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was a brilliant and charming little puzzle game that saw its potential limited by the low install base of Wii U. Thankfully, Nintendo is now bringing the game to much bigger audiences on 3DS and Switch. These ports also come with new levels based on Super Mario Odyssey, but as it turns out, this is less of an addition and more of a swap.
These new versions of the game include four new levels from
Super Mario Odyssey: New Donk City, Cascade Kingdom, Sand Kingdom, and Luncheon Kingdom. However, they also remove four levels that were in the Wii U build. Super Bell Hill, Conkdor Canyon, Shadow-Play Alley, and Clear Pipe Cruise (all levels based on Super Mario 3D World) have been axed from the 3DS and Switch versions.
It makes sense for Nintendo to want to highlight the latest 3D
Mario game, but…why not both?
