So... Better than NES Remix?

Anyone else find it weird that a Mario character who can't jump to save his life has more fan-driven momentum than freaking Dolph Ziggler?

Yes, Captain Toad, the ground-bound protagonist of a surprisingly fun and challenging mini-game in Super Mario 3D World is, according to Nintendo Canada's Matt Ryan, getting more than just a quick cash-in title.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be a full standalone retail game. It won't just be a fleshed out mini-game. We've actually only shown a little bit of the game so far. There's a lot more we haven't shown yet. The game is very "Nintendo". It brings Toad

You've got to deal with the "Toad" physics - he's slower, he doesn't jump, he's weighed down by the backpack, he's smaller. And because of that, there's this whole puzzle environment which is different than how Mario would deal with obstacles. You'll have to solve puzzles and learn to avoid obstacles. It's a much more evolved version of the mini-game levels you played in the past. So, it's hard to compare it to a Super Mario Galaxy or 3D World, because the gameplay is very different.

This is more of a puzzle-platformer. But in terms of content, this is definitely a fully fleshed out retail game.
