Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker released this week on Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS. The game will be a largely familiar experience for anyone who played the original game on the Wii U back in 2014. But these newer versions of the game do offer up a few new features. The most intriguing feature is a series of levels based in the world of Super Mario Odyssey.
So how does one get to these stages? Sure, it's possible to play through the entirety of Captain Toad's original Wii U adventure, but that's going to take some time. What about the person who wants to get to the Inverted Pyramid and New Donk City right away? Fortunately, there's a shortcut.
Do you own any of the three Super Mario Odyssey amiibo figures? They're the key to getting to these new stages. Take out any of the following amiibo:
- Wedding Mario
- Wedding Peach
- Wedding Bowser
Scan the amiibo and the game will recognize it as a "Wedding" amiibo. The game will return to the main menu, with a new "Bonus" mode. This Bonus mode contains four stages based in the world of Super Mario Odyssey, which includes a visit to the Inverted Pyramid, New Donk City, and a battle against the Cookatiel boss from the Luncheon Kingdom.
Each of these stages has their own distinct challenges and unique Super Mario Odyssey-related mechanics. Best of luck and go for the high score!
