REDMOND, Wash. –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Guess who’s ready for more adventure? The turnip-throwing explorer Captain Toad, that’s who! The Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Special Episode DLC, coming to the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker game for the Nintendo Switch system on March 14, offers a treasure chest full of Toad-ally great new content.

The DLC contains 18 new challenges among five creative new courses. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Special Episode is available for $5.99, and anyone who pre-purchases the new downloadable content directly in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch now will have access to Shifty Shrine, the first of the five new courses. The remaining DLC will become available on March 14.

On Feb. 13, a free update to the game also added Partner Adventure Mode, a two-player co-op mode that lets players explore every course in the game together with a friend. Now players can team up as Captain Toad and Toadette or Captain Toad and Purple Captain Toad to solve puzzles together in both the base game and DLC.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker finds Captain Toad dodging dangers and tracking treasure across many trap-filled courses. Each course is like its own puzzle box, filled with tricky obstacles, dangerous enemies and hidden secrets. Throughout the expanded adventure, Captain Toad and fellow explorers Toadette and Purple Captain Toad will make their way through volcanoes, jungles and even haunted houses. The game is perfect for players looking for a puzzling adventure that they can play at home or on the go.

We’ll report back on how all the new courses look, when the DLC finally launches in full.
