    The scant new content and the Nintendo Switch version make this version of 3DS look a bit underrated, despite being a very remarkable conversion and title.

    If you own a Switch then there’s no real decision to be made here: Captain Toad is still far and away better on Nintendo’s latest system. That’s not to say the 3DS version is a write-off, though, because that’s far from the case. As seemingly one of the final few big-name releases for the system, Captain Toad pushes it to its limits to produce easily one of the best-looking 3DS games ever made. The 3DS may be preparing for retirement, but games like this are ensuring it’s going out in a blaze of glory.

    Captain Toad returns with his first adventure starring alone for Wii U with a version for 3DS that, although graphically suffering remarkably, proves that it's still a fantastic platform and puzzle proposal.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was a fun time when it hit the Wii U, and it’s still a fun time today. The new levels are easily some of the best in the game, but they don’t really justify a second purchase. I’m thrilled Nintendo wants to make use of this well-traveled fungi, but I hope the next time I see Captain Toad, he’s going on a completely new adventure.

    One may even argue that in terms of pure functionality, the 3DS port is more loyal than even the Switch with its built-in dual screens and microphone support.

    It's an astonishing feat to have fully translated this complex console game to a handheld with all the bells and whistles intact, and despite a handful of technical shortcomings, it's still just as adorable and joyous as it was three years ago. The home consoles may offer a more convenient, well-polished version, but 3DS owners could do a lot worse than to delve into the captain's trials in handheld form.

    Toad Tracker on the 3DS is truly a rare surprise from Nintendo, The fact that they are still porting over WiiU titles to the now 7 year oldToad Tracker on the 3DS is truly a rare surprise from Nintendo, The fact that they are still porting over WiiU titles to the now 7 year old handheld shows that it still has life in 2018. Toad Tracker while not the most visually impressive game was a good candidate for a game to port onto handhelds. It handles well on the 3DS touch screen and runs at a solid 30FPS. The game does suffer on visual fidelity due to the lack of an HD screen or any anti-aliasing, But if you can look past that then its a great title that will truly bring hours of fun. Everything is the same as the WiiU version and plays just as expected.

    - Good integration with the touch screen
    - Supports older 3DS models
    - Runs at a good framerate and doesnt lag

    - Suffers from jagged edges due to the low resolution of the 3DS screen
    - Can strain your eyes after playing for a pro-longed period (due to 30FPS + Low resolution)

    Do I Recommended it? - Yes, but only if you don't own a switch.
