And it’s only $40.
Nintendo seems to be in the process of building itself a solid lineup for the Wii U this holiday season- Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2 will be available for their console for the all lucrative holiday season, we knew that, and earlier today, they confirmed that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U would be launching November 21 as well. Now, they have confirmed that Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, the puzzle platformer game that they first revealed this E3, will be launching for the Wii U on December 5 in North America.
Unlike most other retail games, Captain Toad will launch for just $40, which makes it an attractive proposition for families looking to get their kids a big game for Christmas as a present; it will also support some Amiibos (Nintendo’s NFC enabled toys) some time in 2015, although it is not yet clear which ones exactly it will support.
The release date for Europe or Japan has not yet been announced, and in Europe at least, Nintendo has delayed the game into early 2015.
