The Nintendo Digital Event has thrown up a few surprises already today, one of them being a new Wii U game called Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

Veterans of Super Mario 3D World will instantly recognise the concept behind this just-announced title; it's based on the Captain Toad mini-puzzles found in that game. Players have to control Captain Toad through a series of 3D mazes in search of treasure (unsurprisingly!). The game sports a similar visual style to its 3D platforming predecessor.

No other launch details were announced other than a Holiday 2014 release window.
