One of those vital components which wasn’t readily available in the initial Wii U version of the game, nor the Nintendo 3DS variant, is co-op gameplay. Ever faithful to the Nintendo brand, personalities Kit and Krystal teamed up to reveal eight minutes of gameplay in the upcoming puzzle game.
Seen from the Nintendo Minute video below, Kit and Krystal jump straight into the action beginning at par Shy Guy Heights. While Krystal plays as Captain Toad doing the main bulk of this task, Kit (as second-player) is able to use the next Joy-Con as a buffer. The action is restricted, with 2P being able to control the camera (alongside 1P), throw fruit to eliminate enemies, and show coins.
In all honesty, it feels like playing with another player kills a number of the mystery vibes of this game that’s somewhat disappointing, but we’ll see how this plays out in the complete release. Much like driving options on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this is probably a move to help keep the game accessible for younger viewers that are more likely to play couch co-op. But at first blush, Nintendo 3DS purchasers don’t appear to be missing much.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch has been shown in that the March 2018 Nintendo Direct. The game is (by all means) a re-release of the Wii U version, with an added co-op style and dedicated Super Mario Odyssey levels. Leading up to release, Nintendo hasn’t really been bashful about displaying the game at various gameplay trailers. In actuality, a demonstration of the game is available for its Switch variation right now.
As mentioned above, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is currently on Wii U, at which DualShockers awarded the game a 8.0 out of 10. The game comes out on Nintendo 3DS along with Nintendo Switch on July 13, 2018. Have a look at the Nintendo Minute below, or pre-order the superb puzzle game via Amazon.
Any and all service helps keep DualShockers as a standalone, independent platform for less-mainstream opinions and news coverage.
