Nintendo debuts new Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker amiibo-centric video

0

Seems simple enough

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's amiibo support was shrouded in mystery for a while. Even at launch it wasn't clear what amiibo actually did, but over time Nintendo revealed their plans. Not only could you earn extra 1-Ups by way of figures (lame), but the Toad amiibo adds "extra pixel Toads" to find scattered about stages.

Here's the rub with the pixel-dudes -- it looks like you'll get to tap the figure down on the GamePad, then you'll have 10 seconds to find it in a level, and make sure it's visible on the screen to "claim it." That's a really small feature, but if it appears in every single stage it's a good enough reason for me to go back.

Japan is getting a badass bundle (check it out in the gallery below), but nothing has been announced for any other region.
