Captain Toad is now portable! Which is great, since it seemed like it would have been the perfect fit for on-the-go gaming. Well, better late than never, and now you can take Captain Toad and his adventures with you! All-new stages included from the hit game Super Mario Odyssey!
So as of this post, only the demo is available from the eShop. But I do have this pre-ordered from GameStop and I'm looking forward to the full release. I've played a bit of it already, and I'm very happy with how well this game looks and performs on the 3DS. Everything looks great, the FPS is nice and smooth, and the controls seem spot-on.
I'm playing it on NEW 3DS, so I've been using the C-nub for camera control. Works perfectly, as one might expect. Touch-screen camera movement is also quite good. The shoulder buttons apparently also move the camera, but when you can use the touch-screen or c-nub, why bother?
The demo only has a handful of stages, but it's a great little teaser of what's to come. I've never played the Wii U version, so I'm quite happy about having an updated version that is also portable. Only thing I'd wish for is some stronger use of the stereoscopic 3D, since it's a little weaksauce IMO compared to say, Metroid: Samus Returns. Still, glad it has it at all, since some of the more recent 3DS games lack the 3D effect entirely.
Anyone else try the demo? And is anyone else besides me playing this for the first time?
I've only played the demo on Switch. I actually have the game on Wii U, but I haven't played it. It's a clever little game, but a bit too methodical and indirect for my tastes.
I do appreciate the inclusion of 3D, though. Especially since each stage is like a diorama. But it still hits my other 3DS pet peeve. No enhancements on New 3DS!! Whyyyy?! WTFFFF! 60fps would have been awesome.
Yeah, some extra perks for N3DS owners would have been nice. I heard rumors that the textures are better on the newer hardware (a la Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate)...but I havenít seen anything that proves it.
