In this week’s episode of Quality Control, Dave Tach and Michael McWhertor talk about Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

Press play below to learn about the game’s history and what you get with the new versions headed to Switch and Nintendo 3DS (spoiler: not a whole lot, but some of it seems cool). Stick around to find out just what it is about this little game that keeps Mike coming back.

As Mike wrote in his review, “Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for Switch is measurably better in all ways than the original game — according to the technical analysts at Digital Foundry, the 3DS version is great too — but more importantly represents a chance for many Nintendo fans who skipped the Wii U to finally see what all the fuss is about.”
