Toadette announced as a playable character in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for Wii U

"Captain Toad embarks on his first solo adventure" they said. It seems the good Captain wasn't strong enough to go it alone and it has since been announced that his female Mushroom-comrade, Toadette will be coming to back him up; in the form of a second playable character. I'm pretty sure this is Toadettes first adventure game playable character appearance? Anyway, heres the official release from Nintendo

 

Who’s ready for adventure? Captain Toad certainly is, but he’s not the only one. Pink-pigtailed Toadette joins Captain Toad and makes her debut as a second playable character in portions of the upcoming Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker game.

Yeaaah!! Toadette enters the errr.... fray?

 

Armed with a headlight and a can-do attitude, Captain Toad and Toadette must make their way through enemy-infested locales like Wild West shanties and Goomba waterparks. Each location is bursting with puzzles to solve and secrets to unearth. These heroes need to be extra clever in order to tackle these obstacles, since they can’t jump.


These tiny heroes are on the hunt for the ultimate treasure, a coveted Power Star. At the beginning of their adventure, Wingo, a giant, greedy bird who makes life difficult for these timid treasure trackers, makes off with their only Power Star, and even whisks away Toadette. Players must then help Captain Toad retrieve the Power Star and Toadette in order to unlock her as a playable character, and ultimately, defeat Wingo. In the process, they’ll encounter more than 70 fun, puzzling stages while also collecting stars and gems. There will even be different power-ups they can use to their advantage, like the Double Cherry item that makes another copy of Captain Toad or Toadette, making some of those stages even more riveting.

Captain Toad and his puzzling levels first appeared in Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U console. The levels were such a hit with fans that he and Toadette are now getting their own game. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is just another way Nintendo is expanding its universe of games with familiar characters facing fun new challenges.


The Wii U game launches in stores and in the Nintendo eShop on Dec. 5 at a suggested retail price of $39.99. For more information about Nintendo, visit http://www.nintendo.com.
 

My personal highlight "Armed with a headlight and a can-do attitude" - I lol'd.

 

Wingo, a giant, greedy bird (who seems to be wearing Toadette as a necklace) is set to be a constant source of inconvenience to our adventurers in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
