Although Wii U wasn’t a commercial success, it was home to many fantastic games. One of my favorite releases on the console was Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, and it became even better when Nintendo brought it to Switch. This endlessly charming game places the adventurous Captain Toad (as well as Toadette) in a series of small, puzzle box-style worlds where you must manipulate the camera to reach a Power Star. It’s tons of fun, but you don’t have to take my word for it! Nintendo just announced that Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is getting a free trial on Nintendo Switch Online.

The free trial of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker officially kicks off tomorrow, January 13, for Nintendo Switch Online members. The trial lasts until January 20, so you’ll have a week to enjoy it for free. If you like what you play, you can pick up the full game at a discounted price. Nintendo is selling it for 30% off through January 16. That means instead of the usual $40 price tag, you can pick it up for just $28 right now. I can’t recommend it enough at that price, and you can check out our official review of it by clicking here.
