Games discussed:

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, like Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze before it, is the kind of brilliant Nintendo first party offering that can't be missed. Thank the gaming gods then that it's coming to the Switch on Friday the 13th. The Wii U port is a can't miss game, according to several outlets who put out reviews of the Switch version today.

Polygon - "Too few people played this charming puzzle game, but now they have a second chance."

IGN - 8.7 - "Treasure Tracker still feels close to unique, and gains new life on both of Nintendo’s current systems."

Nintendo Life - 8 - "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a hidden gem from the Wii U era that's been given a new lease of life on the Nintendo Switch, and rightly so."
