My son Hayden loves everything Nintendo and eagerly waits for all of the latest games for both his Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Switch. A game that he was so excited to check out was Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo 3DS!
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was originally released on the Wii U years ago but now it’s just been released for both the 3DS and the Switch! I actually played this when we had the Wii U and was excited for Hayden to check it out.
Captain Toad has to dodge danger and track treasures across many trap-filled courses. Survive smoldering volcanoes, hazardous steam engines, haunted houses, and even new courses based on the Super Mario Odyssey™ game! Watch them come to life in stereoscopic 3D using the touch-controlled game camera.
Super Gems and Power Stars are hidden across each puzzling course you’ll explore. As you reclaim the treasure stolen by the monstrous, greedy bird, Wingo, you’ll eventually be able to play as Toadette! These tiny heroes will have to waddle, hide, pluck, chuck, and power-up through enemy-infested locales like towers, wild-west shanties, and Goomba waterparks—all bursting with goodies to find and secrets to unearth. It’s all in the name of treasure! Aim your head-mounted flashlight at adventure!

Oh my gosh, this game is SO much fun! Hayden has really been having fun with it – being able to use the touch screen to tap and zoom to move blocks, spin wheels and more gives it a bit more interaction for kids. Hayden attends occupational therapy at school and I’ve noticed that it’s been good exercise for his hands. Super Mario Odyssey is also one of his favorite Switch games and he is enjoying these special themed stages in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a great game for kids and definitely a game that I love that he’s playing. It’s full of puzzles and challenges and is keeping Hayden’s mind sharp this during summer break. It’s available right now for the Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Switch. Have fun on this new adventure with Captain Toad!
