Good news for us Captain Toad fans; NEW DLC and GENUINE CO-OP ACTION.


I love this game, so glad we're still getting support for it!
That was the only announcement that got me excited today!!

It was a fairly boring direct in my opinion.
I liked hearing a bit more on Yoshi’s crafted world.

I was really hoping to learn more about the newest Luigi’s Mansion!

rejoice toad fans more proof of how awesome he is

this co op makes the idea of cap and toadette being like ice climbers seem like an ever better idea
Exactly my thoughts as well - it's almost like Captain Toad and Toadette are the modern day Ice Climbers with the features showed in the DLC episodes (key tossing etc).

This is brilliant; however. Was hoping we'd see more TT in the near future and looks like we were rewarded! Anyone got a nickname for the new purple/blue Captain Toad? :p

Also looks like Blue Toad (in builder costume) and Toadette (in cat form) will be in Super Mario Maker 2 as well. Playable? Looks to be!

I wonder if they made the 2P Captain Toad purple to reference Purple Toad's absence? In any case, I'm incredibly glad that Treasure Tracker is still getting love; I was worried Nintendo would forget about our little treasure tracker, but it seems as though that's anything but the case! It's also amazing to get proper co-op: as far as I'm concerned, that was one of the few major complaints about the port.

After U Deluxe, I sure hope this means we can play as Toad/Toadette in single player in Maker 2. Kinda sad Cat Toadette is just a photoshopped Cat Toad, but as long as we get them as playable characters!

This Toad moveset for Project M looks amazing, it's actually pretty close to how I envisioned him. From the propeller hat Up-B, to the Captain Toad forward smash, this moveset would represent Toad as a whole very well. With Ridley and King K. Rool already in Ultimate, Toad and Dixie Kong are the last remaining Nintendo All-Stars that truly deserve to be in the game, and it's a crime that Toad hasn't been playable since Melee. I support Toad for Smash, he would make for a great addition!

This excellent Toad mod gives me very good reason to keep playing Project M even thought Ultimate brought in Ridley, every veteran back, and nearly every past stage. Brawl's staying power in my opinion was its mods. I am really looking forward to using it. The good thing too, is that these mods are playable without hacking your Wii. I need to refresh myself though on how to add characters to the game though.

Today was very kind to Toad fans. Not only was DLC and co-op announced for Captain Toad, but both Toad and Toadette are going to be playable characters in Super Mario Maker 2.

It is really bizarre how Toad/Toadette/Captain Toad have so few people that care for their inclusion in Smash Bros. Maybe I should make an essay in support of Toad like I am planning to for Dixie Kong? However, that might be putting too much on my plate. It is really bizarre that those characters might never make it to the roster, and the "Smash bubble" (the people who do the most chatting about Smash Bros. on the internet) barely cares about them.

Still this is a fantastic development for Toad, Toadette, and Captain Toad. Their chances may be the bleakest of any Mario character going forward, but they cotinue to show just why they are Nintendo All-Stars (the only other two characters left that can even compare to it are Dixie Kong and Bandana Dee).

I wonder if Super Mario 3D World is the only new style in Super Mario Maker 2. I had my heart set on Super Mario Bros. 2. Well, at least Toad and Toadette are playable... well, I hope so but I don’t think Nintendo confirmed it... and if so, hopefully they can be playable in all styles.

If a 3D Mario game can be translated into a 2D Mario game, I think it would be cool if future Super Mario Maker games could have new styles based on other 3D Mario games. They could come with their own unique power-up items.

Super Mario Bros. - Mystery Mushroom
Super Mario Bros. 3 - Super Leaf
Super Mario World - Cape Feather
New Super Mario Bros. U - Propeller Mushroom
Super Mario 3D World - Super Bell

Super Mario 64 - Wing Cap / Metal Cap / Vanish Cap (shake object to change power-up items)
Super Mario Sunshine - F.L.U.D.D. (uses Hover Nozzle and Squirt Nozzle)
Super Mario Galaxy - Luma (grants you Star Spin ability)
Super Mario Odyssey - Cappy (grants you Cap Throw and Capture abilities)

I always meant to get the Switch version of Treasure Tracker later down the road, but the amazing announcement of DLC made me go get it right away, to be ready once the DLC drops.

I have to say it just makes me happy to see Nintendo support the game so much, first they gave it a port on both the Switch AND the 3DS, then dedicated a bunch of Switch profile icons to it and now they are cranking out new content via the new co-op mode and proper new DLC levels.

Really goes to show that Nintendo is fond of the game and has faith in it, hopefully this will translate into a sequel, sometime in the future.
