Captain Toad 3d World

As if the awesome-as-heck Bowsertron 5000 wasn't enough to get us hyped for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, Nintendo has revealed that the Captain Toad levels featured in the game will now support multiplayer.

Of course, you might remember that Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker actually started out as a series of isometric minigames found inside Super Mario 3D World on Wii U. The concept was so good that Nintendo decided to turn the idea into a new game in its own right – one that has now been released on Wii U, 3DS and Switch.

Originally, in 3D World on Wii U, the Captain Toad levels were single-player only, but that's all about to change when the game gets rereleased on Switch; Nintendo has confirmed on its official website that the Captain Toad puzzle stages will now support up to four players. Wahoo!
