Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker gets a new gameplay trailer for those interested in seeing how the Switch and 3DS ports are coming along for the charming Nintendo spinoff title. You can check out some of the game’s footage below.

Originally, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was released for the Wii-U late 2014 to early 2015 depending on region. Not long ago, it was announced that the cute action puzzler would be coming to the Nintendo Switch and 3DS on July 13.

From what we can see so far, not too much has changed about the charming Toad-adventure, as you are tasked with guiding Captain Toad and Toadette through mazes and puzzle levels. The trailer includes some new environments in the form of a New Donk City-inspired level, which we get to see for a little bit.

The new port will also be featuring some special new levels inspired by the Super Mario Odyssey to add a little extra flair for returning players. The Switch version of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will feature a two-player mode with one person controlling Captain Toad and the other throwing turnips at the environment. The 3DS version will naturally feature touchscreen controls, so there’s definitely some new stuff there to encourage any returning players to pick up a copy on either console.

Check out some gameplay from the new ports of Nintendo’s mushroom-y spin-off below. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is currently available on Wii-U and will release for 3DS and Nintendo Switch on July 13. You can also check out our review of the original Wii-U version of the game here.
