As mentioned earlier, the games are part of the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker celebration, which means all of the discounted games feature Toad in some capacity. Also part of the rewards is a game-themed calendar and wallpaper. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker involves you playing as the title character and going through various trap-filled mazes looking for treasure. It can also be played in co-op mode, where you and a friend take control of both Toad and Toadette, and collect treasure together.

This is also a game with no jumping mechanic, adding to its discovery and strategy aspect. While in handheld mode, the Switch’s touchscreen can be used to move objects and freeze enemies. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be available on July 13.
