Nintendo’s Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is coming to the Nintendo Switch and 3DS next month but in the meantime, the Nintendo eShop has a free demo for those who want to try it. After going live in Europe, the demo is now available for North America as well.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker follows the eponymous Captain Toad as he navigates through levels to locate Power Stars (along with saving Toadette, who latter becomes a playable character). Levels aren’t your typical Mario platforming stages – instead, Captain Toad must find ways to traverse them without being overwhelmed by enemies. There are some cool on-rail shooting sequences on a minecart though.
Though the Switch port will feature bonus stages from Super Mario Odyssey, they will be replacing the previous bonus stages inspired by Super Mario 3D World. Whether these will be added later, either as free or paid DLC, remains to be seen but Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is out on July 13th.
