Toadette Revealed for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Toad will have a friend helping him look for treasure in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on the Wii U.

In a new video released by Nintendo, not only is Toadette an announced character in the upcoming Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, but she's even a playable character.

A 3-minute gameplay video reveals everything that players will be doing in the game. Filled with over 70 different courses, gamers will utilize the Wii U's touchscreen gamepad to navigate Toad throughout the various levels.

When faced with an obstacle to pass, simply touch the screen to move around around objects, like moving a pillar up and down, or elevating a platform that Toad is standing on.

Interestingly, Toad won't be alone. Despite Toadette being a captured in the story, it looks like she's still a playable character. It was a subtle introduction by Nintendo, and it makes an adorable game even more adorable.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is exclusive to the Wii U and will be released in North America on December 5th, 2014. It's essentially an expanded version of the Super Mario 3D World bonus levels, but the price tag of $39.99 makes it easier on the wallet to pick it up.
