My goodness, this website for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Our little adventurer can perform such actions as "throw," "dig," and "tumble." I can't take it. Too much.

There's a gallery with several new screenshots, including the best of the bunch, embedded above.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the Captain Toad levels in Super Mario 3D World -- maybe even loved them -- but I didn't realize how much I wanted more of this type of "mini-maze adventure" prior to Treasure Tracker. I really want more. This just plain looks excellent.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will get amiibo support on March 20

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be getting its long-awaited amiibo support on March 20. The game will use the new Toad amiibo, which is set to arrive as part of the Mario-specific line. This must be why Nintendo has been quiet about amiibo support for the game -- it was waiting to announce the all-new Mario figures. It makes sense, since Toad isn't a Super Smash Bros. fighter.more
