Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker added a free co-op mode back in February, but Nintendo isn't done adding content to the puzzle-platformer. The Special Episode DLC, which will run you $5.99 on the eShop, adds 18 new challenges and five new courses. If you pre-purchased the DLC on the eShop you will have early access to Shifty Shrine, the first of the new levels. The rest of the DLC pack will roll out tomorrow.
I really enjoyed Captain Toad when I reviewed it on Wii U, but that was an uncomfortably brief 5 years ago. I haven't picked it up on Switch yet, as I've heard mixed things about how it controls; some of my friends think this game is one of the few that actually worked better with Wii U's two-screen setup. Maybe if Nintendo keeps adding content, I'll give this one another go.

The DLC contains 18 new challenges among five creative new courses. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Special Episode is available for $5.99, and anyone who pre-purchases the new downloadable content directly in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch now will have access to Shifty Shrine, the first of the five new courses. The remaining DLC will become available on March 14.
On Feb. 13, a free update to the game also added Partner Adventure Mode, a two-player co-op mode that lets players explore every course in the game together with a friend. Now players can team up as Captain Toad and Toadette or Captain Toad and Purple Captain Toad to solve puzzles together in both the base game and DLC.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker finds Captain Toad dodging dangers and tracking treasure across many trap-filled courses. Each course is like its own puzzle box, filled with tricky obstacles, dangerous enemies and hidden secrets. Throughout the expanded adventure, Captain Toad and fellow explorers Toadette and Purple Captain Toad will make their way through volcanoes, jungles and even haunted houses. The game is perfect for players looking for a puzzling adventure that they can play at home or on the go.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is available now for Nintendo Switch. For more information about the game, visit https://captaintoad.nintendo.com/.
