Nintendo has uploaded a beefy three-and-a-half-minute trailer for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which will close out the year as Nintendo's final first-party home console game of 2014. In addition to showing off many new features and locations, it also welcomes the pigtailed Toadette as a sometimes damsel-in-distress, other times second playable character.
Treasure Tracker, as we know by now, is a budget spin-off of the "Captain Toad" minigame in Super Mario 3D World, though it expands upon the original premise in a massive way. There will be over 70 puzzle-platforming levels to explore, boss battles, touch interaction with certain in-game objects, and minecart stages during which you use the GamePad to target enemies and fire turnips at them.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker arrives for Wii U on December 5.
