Another title from one of Nintendo's previous flagship home consoles is heading to Switch, with some new updates that fans of the Super Mario franchise will certainly love.
According to a report from Polygon, action-puzzle video game "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker" is heading to the Nintendo Switch library. The announcement came during the latest Nintendo Direct presentation last week. The game, which was originally released in the Wii U console back in 2014, will also bring in new levels that are based on the "Super Mario Odyssey" video game.
According to the game's official description, new levels of "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker" are described as "new miniature courses based on various Kingdoms in the Super Mario Odyssey game." Moreover, the game also opens an opportunity for multiplayer fun, as "anyone can play with a friend or family member by sharing a pair of Joy-Con controllers. While one player controls Captain Toad, the other can assist with things like turnip cover fire," the official description added.
The game launches on July 13 while a 3DS version carrying the same title with "stereoscopic 3D visuals and touch-screen controls" is slated to come out on the same day as well.
Meanwhile, two more titles from another franchise are also scheduled to arrive on Switch. In a Facebook post last week, Australian developer Loveshack Entertainment announced that "Framed" and "Framed 2" will be coming to the console this spring. The two games challenge players' analytical skills as they try to rearrange the various panels of an animated book to change the outcome of the story.
"We're pleased to announce that FRAMED Collection--a compilation of the multi-award winning noir puzzle games FRAMED and FRAMED 2--will be launching on Nintendo Switch in Spring," read Loveshack's post. "Rearrange the panels of an animated comic book to craft the story of a noir-styled spy adventure, using logic and imagination to create the best outcome," the post added.
In addition, the developer also confirmed that the two games will be using a "completely updated UI" while retaining the old tactile controls of the original mobile game versions.
