Woke up this morning to Captain Toad and Octopath Traveller chiming on my system that the downloads had completed.

Played a few stages of Captain toad at work and oh my gosh, this game is absolutely perfect for the Switch. And there are a number of games that are "perfect for the Switch" but this one is uber-perfect for the Switch!

The short, pick up and play diorama levels are just incredible for getting a stage or two in when you only have 5-10 minutes to play. When they first announced this game I was actually kind of surprised because I just felt like it was an odd pick. But now that I've experienced the game on this system I understand completely why they chose to bring this game. And a wise choice it was.

@Anti-Matter I think that if you scan any of the SMO amiibos (Mario, Peach, or Bowser in their wedding outfits), you can unlock the Super Mario Odyssey levels immediately. Otherwise, I think you have to beat the game in order to unlock those levels. I only have the Wii U version so I could very well be wrong, but it does make sense to me.

Yes, you can scan those three amiibo to unlock the odyssey levels early, however you can also unlock them after beating the main story of the game.

Other amiibo, I think they just give lives.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I recently started playing this game on the Wii U and it's actually amazing! I hope there's a sequel! I don't think this game is worth the double dip on Switch or 3DS, though, so for now, I'll keep playing on the Wii U.

Yep, game is awesome. Its just so relaxing to play.
Between this and Shining Resonance, cant see myself starting Octopath any time soon.
Oh and, Find Pixel Toad and touch him cracks me up every time.

The Wii U version is the best so you aren't missing anything playing on Wii U.

The game is pretty and relaxing to play. If you try to get the gems and secrets and not just the stars it has a decent amount of content, although I know that some people say that it's short.

They simply removed them from this version because they wanted to add SMO to the mix, it's one of those things where both could not coexist.

If the levels don't return in this game, I highy doubt they will return in other games.

The levels removed are the same as 3D World though and as Captain Toad is in the base 3D World game, I could see them having them if there's a 3D World port.

Anyway, I think the Switch version of Captain Toad will get more Odyssey levels either in an update or DLC (1 for each kingdom that Captain Toad gives you a moon in Odyssey). As shown by Pokken DX, a Wii U port can still get DLC.

Well keep in mind that the gems are kinda the meat of the levels, if you go straight for the star, you'll probably beat each level in less than a minute.

Yeah, I can see that. But still... The issue to me is that there's almost always that one annoying gem on a level, and if you don't get it on the first try, you have to replay the level. To me it would be better if it was like the 3D Mario games where you do have to get a certain quantity of stars to fight the final boss, and if you want to get all of them there's another reward.

I have this on Wii U, and though I loved it, it was a game I got really into, but then something must have happened or another game came out because I then did not play it for over 3 years according to my Wii U play catalogue thingy lol.

All this talk and praise of the re-release got me thinking about the game a lot though, and I actually downloaded the demo of 3DS version as I thought if I was going to double dip on either the Switch or 3DS, that I would probably go for the 3DS version as I can take that on holiday with me etc (my Switch does come to work with me, but that's it, I'd never take it anywhere else), and to me the game also just screams "I was built for the 3DS" (perhaps because of the use of the stylus, much like the Wii U version?)

I subsequently fell in love with the game and was about to order a copy for the 3DS, when I decided to pop in my Wii U disc and see how far I'd gotten all that time ago, and to remind myself of the console version of the game and OMG I just fell in love with the game all over again lol.

So much so that I'm not going to bother double dipping on either the 3DS or Switch version now, and I'm going to stick with my addiction to the Wii U version; so that little test ended up saving me £35.00 which I'm quite pleased about lol.

As soooooooooooooooo many have already said though, if you never owned it on the Wii U, you owe it to yourself to get it for the Switch or 3DS.

Sincerely hope that one day down the line they do a proper sequel with all new levels and not just a few added ones.

Any one of the three Wedding amiibo will unlock all four Odyssey stages at once. The Toad amiibo is used to make him invincible (not usable in Bonus stages). All other amiibo will function as they did in the Wii U version, giving you one or two 1-Up mushrooms, and any amiibo can be scanned up to twice at a time (some time needs to lapse before the same amiibo can be tapped more than twice).

Frankly, I'm surprised that Nintendo would forego the opportunity to sell more Toad amiibo by making the Pixel Toad stages accessible by default.

Anyway, the Odyssey levels are certainly not worth double-dipping for. Two of the levels are really short, however, that New Donk City level is just glorious.

I had forgotten how beautiful and fun this game is. I'm having a blast playing it all over again. The biggest flaw is in the game's design, as it was clearly designed for the Wii U in mind, and many of its mechanics haven't transitioned particularly smoothly to the Switch (especially when playing in TV mode). It really puts the uniqueness of the Wii U in perspective, if nothing else.

I fired up my Wii U copy for the first time last night. I only did six or so stages as it was already late, but man am I enjoying this game! It's a shame that I'll have to leave it at home for about a week while I'm on vacation.

Finally got my copy. Played the first few levels, it still amazes me how they managed to do such a good porting job to the 3ds, it's just as good as Yoshi's Wooly World. Maybe better, considering the lighting effects and stuff in this one.

It's all very cute.

After some thinking, ended up getting the 3DS version along with Sushido. It's a great port, no doubt.

Considering the Switch version upgrades to 1080p on TV over the 720p of Wii U, is 720p on handheld over the 480p of Wii U, is 100% untethered vs the 20 foot restriction on Wii U, and the fact the game can be played exactly how it plays on Wii U via touch screen with the addition of motion on the TV which is quicker and easier than looking down at a second, sub HD screen with a stylus in your hand, and having to physically remove your hand from holding the controller to tap on the screen with the stylus...

I would say the Swhich version is better in just about every single way possible.

Not saying it's worth it to double dip- that will be up to each individual obviously, and if you can get it cheaper on Wii U, it might even be the better choice depending on who you ask.

But saying the Wii U version is better? Nah, let's keep it real here. It's not.

The Switch version, at least in portable mode, is the best version, it removes having to blow into the microphone (If there’s anything that screams annoying Nintendo gimmick, it’s blowing into the microphone) and gets rid of those awfully slow 3D World stages and replaces them with stages that were actually properly designed for Captain Toad. And in portable mode the resolution is on par with the Wii U version.

I’m on my way...

Oh hey I found the motion control options for the camera. I actually quite like them.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Yosheel Where? I found the mine cart levels awkward without gyro aiming.

@Grumblevolcano You always expect DLC, and it never happens. So you jinxed it, no DLC for Captain Toad
