Nintendo's flair for puzzle and level-design, as well as challenge in movement and progression has been on display for myriad years across numerous titles. This year, and more importantly, this month, that classic Nintendo design tilt is on display with the re-release of Captain Toad: Treasure Hunter on Nintendo Switch. It was originally released on Wii U.
And while the port itself is handled well, and suits the platform, Nintendo could have done a bit more to make it a bit more appealing for returning players, we we've mentioned in our review:
Additionally, the new release does have some modern love in the form of levels lifted from Super Mario Odyssey, and while they’re more than welcome they also kind of represent a larger issue with this re-release. With Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odyssey and the very fun Mario Tennis: Aces -- all of which include many Toad moments, Nintendo could have added in even an entire other Episode filled to the brim with new challenges and design concepts. The handful of Odyssey levels we do get are more a tease than anything else and just having more would have been great from a new buy-in perspective.
