Captain Toad Treasure Tracker is in Continuity with Mario 3D World

A couple of days ago, game review channel GameExplain uploaded a video showing the final boss and ending for Captain Toad Treasure Tracker.  But while the choice of final boss was a bit predictable, there was something very interesting about the game’s ending…

Namely, a piece of continuity that you’d never, ever expect from a Mario game. What was it?  Well, watch the video to find out!

Or, click the link below, where we’ll spoil it for you.  Your chance…

So what is this plot twist?  Well…

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker is a prequel to Super Mario 3D World.  You actually see Captain Toad entering the pipe to the Sprixie Kingdom, as well as the whole intro from Mario’s Wii U adventure.  Yes, complete with Mario and Luigi repairing the pipe and Bowser kidnapping the Sprixie Princess.

For Nintendo, that’s pretty cool.  They’ve actually added a bit of continuity to a series which supposedly doesn’t have any of it, and actually managed to connect two Mario games together.  Good job guys!
