Captain Toad Treasure Tracker Gameplay Walkthrough – Episode 3 – Hunt for the Great Bird’s Lair!

September 15, 2019

(adventurous music) – [Zebra Gamer] Hello,
Zebra Herd, and welcome back to Captain Toad Treasure Tracker. And today, we are moving
on to the third chapter. Of course, in the last episode, we completed the second
chapter, and along with it, we got ourselves a boss fight defeated, with the King of Pyropuff Peak. But now, we’re moving on to chapter three, The Hunt for the Great Bird’s Lair. And what is this gonna be? Maybe like a little cut scene? Oh, I’m gonna go back home. (laughing)
No, we can’t. It’s like, oh, this is scary, goin’ home! We’ll see you, Toadette, good luck. Oh boy, what is this about? Oh, look at him, he’s just camping. Wish he had a marshmallow, maybe, you know, cook him some s’mores. Ah, maybe next time. Oh, look at that little tent. Oh, there he is. Oh, go get him! Oh, leave the tent, leave
everything behind, oh. If only Toad could fly. I’d be mad, too, don’t worry, we’ll catch him, only a matter of time. The Hunt for the Great
Bird’s Lair continues as we try to find him. And level 11, Piranha Creeper Cove. This looks fun, I like these
levels, they’re usually okay. I mean, some underwater
levels not so much, but in a game like this, I
feel like it’s gonna be fun. And so far, I look correct. Oh, I love this song. Oh, can I pick up these little crabs that are walking around? No, they just hide. Hm, I think I see the first diamond. I have to work with this guy a little bit, and pick up that, awesome, awesome stuff. So in the first episode,
I slightly mentioned it, but I wanted to talk about
it a little bit more today, is the fact that if you don’t know, Captain Toad got his start
in Super Mario 3D world, another game for the Wii U. Oh, look at all these coins. Oh, under the dilapidated
boat right here, very cool. So yeah, it was actually
just a little mini-game you could find in Super Mario 3D world. Eventually, people liked it so much, they made a full version of the game. But I wonder if that means we can see, oh, that was cool, a Super Mario 3D world port make its way to the Switch at some point. Is that something you
guys would like to see? Would you like like to see Super Mario 3D world
on the Nintendo Switch? I think that’d be really cool, cause that was another
really great Wii U game that I feel like not many
people had the chance to play. Okay, so we gotta be careful of this guy, and then we just gotta move. I don’t know if there’s
a way to swim faster, because you’re gonna have
to start learning it. Okay, we’re fine. We’re gonna have to follow him here. Come on, come on, come
on, come on, come on, corner, corner, oh boy, I’m scared! We made it. So we got two diamonds already, let’s move over here, just like that. But yeah, I think that
would be a lot of fun, Super Mario 3D World is a really fun game, and I definitely wanna play it soon. But I’ve been sort of waiting, I’m sort of expecting them to say, hey, it’s coming out on
the Switch, you know? Or something like that,
in the next year or two. So I’m like holding on
tight hoping that happens. Oh boy, watch out! Let’s go ahead and pull that up. But what I’m getting a
little confused about is how do we get over… Huh. Ah, oh no, that’s not what I wanted. Oh, I just fell all the way back down. I was just trying to look around. You see, this is probably
a diamond in there, and you get onto it here. What I don’t understand is
how you get onto that area. Maybe if we kept moving,
we would find out. ‘Cause if we move this way, there’s a little thing
up here for some reason. So let’s just go ahead and
try to figure that out. Weird though, for sure, I
don’t know what that’s about. I’m just gonna try to be careful. Can I, oh, I can make
these guys retract though, which is nice, okay,
gonna keep that in mind for these guys over here, ’cause they’re not fun to deal with. I don’t really see too
much of another way. Sort of weird. Uh, keep it retracted,
thank you, go away, got it. Maybe I can just get it from here? No, can I climb up like
the palm tree or something? Nope. I don’t know, weird stuff, for sure. But for right now–
(shouting) Okay, that’s how. Oh, that scared me. Come on, get, get, get
this, there it goes. Our third diamond, awesome. But what I’m really curious about is what is this stuff about up here? Um, bunches of coins. Bunches and bunches of coins. Okay, so I got that, I’m
gonna make you just hide. Oh, you can take them out. Oh, how much you wanna
bet that’s our challenge, is to take care of all of them, like get them all taken down? I’m gonna try that. Boop, got ’em, ’cause I have a feeling that’s what the game’s
gonna tell me to do anyways. But how do you get rid of the ones that are under the water then? Maybe that’s not the case then. But we’ll try our best. Let’s move back this way. Like there’s no way I’m gonna be able to get rid of the guy in the water here, like he might be impossible. Same thing with these two. So I might’ve been able to get rid of all that I could there. ‘Cause there’s no way I can get them. Unfortunately, I don’t think
you can find a fire flower and just throw fireballs at guys. That’d be so cool if you could
get fire Toad in this game. Don’t think it’s gonna
happen though, unfortunately. Let’s plop down and go
ahead and get this star. Don’t see anything else we could do. At least we got over 70 coins,
that’s always pretty good. Yeah, okay, so awesome stuff. So there was Piranha Creeper Cove done, collect 70 coins, okay, that
was it, perfect (laughing). I was gonna say, at least
it was over 70 coins. I guess it doesn’t total
up your coins though, unfortunately, so it
doesn’t matter too much. Oh, we get another little bonus. Last time we had this, last
episode, I totally failed at it. But for right now, don’t
have to worry about that, I have to worry about Pixel Toad. Okay, so pretty good. Find Pixel Toad, when you
spot his hiding place, tap him to catch him. Let’s see what we can do. Yeah, I’m glad that we actually found that one on the first try. Now it’s just about where
this little Toad’s gonna be. Luckily, with this level, you actually get to
look around quite a lot, at practically the entire thing. I think he’s gonna be behind this boat. He isn’t (chuckling). He could’ve been, though. I mean, I might wanna
zoom in a little bit, because sometimes zooming
in can be helpful, and sometimes not so much. Hm, yeah, we’ve seen him in
some pretty crazy places. Oh, there he is, on the coconut. We’ve seen him in some
pretty crazy places, hopping in and out of lava, or
between windows or something. It’s like crazy stuff like that. Yeah, look at that Toad, that’s awesome. We can keep moving. Oh, we got another beach level. Looks like we unlocked a couple. Cool, let’s get a little
sneak peek at it all. Level 12, Briny Bowl Swimming Hole. Huh, so I guess you can swim
in this level, just like, well, I mean, you can’t really swim
in any of the other levels. Well, you can’t swim in this one, either. He’s like stuck to the bottom,
which is a little concerning. Okay, this is really cool,
but also really scary. Ah, there we go, the
Switch Pro Controller’s sort of like off sync with
the center of the screen. So what is this, just some
coins, I’ll gladly take these. That was a lot of coins, actually. Oh, and there’s some more over here. So I see our first diamond,
but I can’t quite reach it. Don’t know if that’s
gonna be a common thing. Let’s go ahead and freeze those guys while I pull this stuff up. What do we got, a diamond,
yay, okay, so we got that. But I guess we can go up to
the top, and then fall down. Is that the idea? Looks like it, so let’s go ahead and freeze these two as well, and I got this and that, awesome. Hm, oh, and by landing on that, it made it fall. What about that one? Oh gosh, we’re falling, we’re falling! I don’t know, pull this. Oh, it’s gonna raise it,
look at that, so cool. So let’s go ahead and grab that, and I need to take those
yellow pipes, never took those. Hm, curious. Grab those, and can I break these blocks? Oh, I can, look at that, whoa! Hey, you rude dude, I don’t like that. There we go, move it, move it,
move it, we gotta be careful. These guys aren’t so nice. So if we go back down, oh, I could’ve plopped off
there and gotten it. You know what?
Let’s do that one real quick, and then I’ll go through the yellow pipe, or maybe I need to just do the green pipe, ’cause the yellow pipe just
seems to lead over there, but I don’t think it does, like that’s sort of a little trick. What is the point of raising this though? I don’t know. Oh, because there’s a green
pipe under it, gotcha. Okay, the yellow pipe
here must just lead there. I didn’t think it would, but I don’t see what else
it could do, you know? So let’s go ahead and grab that. I’ve done everything else I
can sort of see at the moment, so let us go ahead and, oh,
oh, come on, there we go. Get these coins, and I
guess finish up this level. I don’t know what the
thing was supposed to be, look at tiny Toad, he’s so cute. Looks like a little baby Toad. Find the hidden Gold Mushroom again. These are so tough. So we gotta go back
in, I gotta find myself a hidden mushroom of goldenness,
wherever that might be. Where could it have been? I mean, maybe I just wanna
poke around a little bit, before I make anything fall. Right now, I’m finding a
whole bunch of nothing. It had to be something with
this yellow pipe, right? Oh, that gives me some coins, but not really much besides that. This level isn’t very large, so it must be something with
this, where I can raise that, and probably under that is the thing. So let’s try to get that one, then. That’s the only thing I can really see, from the top or bottom of this. Oh gosh, leave me alone. So we’re gonna go ahead and do this, and then just land down like that, and sort of check under this thing. Uh, whole bunch of nothin’. Well, there might be something… I don’t think so, though. I don’t know if there’s any
way to make it fall again. That is so tricky, hm. I have no clue where it could be. There’s not much room, you know, for it to be much any other place. If I could get that one, maybe, huh. This is quite the pickle. Let me go this way,
we’ll fall down here… Yeah, I really don’t see it. Well actually, maybe it’s,
no, it’s not up here. Weird. Okay, so let’s go ahead
and activate this one, and obviously it does that, but that doesn’t do too
much for me, is the thing. This is so weird, where
is this Gold Mushroom at? This is a tricky one, for sure. And this one also doesn’t have a bottom. Oh gosh, didn’t really
mean to go into this pipe. So where in the world
is that Golden Mushroom? There aren’t many other
places it could be. Oh wait, whoa, whoa, whoa. Why is it just golden over here? Look at that baloney. I just walked over here,
and it started glowing gold. Oh, I don’t like that,
because there was no, it did not look like it was glowing gold before I walked over. But hey, we got it, so now I just gotta go through
the level one more time and get ourselves a Pixel Toad. I don’t think that’s gonna be so bad, once again this is another level where you can see the entire level in like one camera pan,
which is always nice. But we’ll try it out, we’ll
see what ends up happening, and we’ll have a good time, hopefully. Some of these are quite the challenge, but they’re all really, really fun. So let’s go back in, and
find that Pixel Toad. Okay, so I have a feeling he’s probably gonna be under something. Before I try, I just wanna go ahead and
look through everything, just try to figure it out,
maybe he’s on another coconut. Maybe he’s not, you never
know until you look. Okay, so so far, I don’t see him. Just trying to look
wherever my pointer is. Hm, yeah, I don’t quite see him just yet, so I think we can actually, you know, start moving around and
try to take out some stuff, you know, maybe move
some stuff here or there, like if we like move that upwards. It’s probably maybe even
on the underside of that, like we were looking for
for the Golden Mushroom. You never know, so that’s
what I’m looking for. And I don’t hear him yet, which is another good signifier
that you’re getting close, so you gotta look for that kind of stuff, but for now, we’re gonna
fall down like this, we’re gonna give another
little look around, I don’t see the little dude. Oh, there he is. See, that’s what I meant, we got him. It brings them up here, I guess, weird. But there we go, there’s
the Pixel Toad for level 12. Yay, and we’re gonna move on to level 13, Turnip Cannon Jungle. It looks like fun. I don’t know too much about
what’s gonna go on, of course, but we got a whole bunch
of these guys again. Oh boy, ready? Bloop, gotcha. Definitely I’m gonna try
to get rid of those guys as much as possible, that
might be a little quest. The star is already right here. The problem is we have no way
to really get to it truly. There’s a diamond, sort
of in a weird spot. I wonder how you get to that? But my goal will be to
get rid of these guys as much as possible, these
little Piranha Plant things. Okay, so I gotta be careful about this, ’cause I don’t know
what’s going on with you, but if I pull this little
lever, what’s gonna happen? Whoa, look at this, what
if I just launch, oh, I can launch turnips at
people, there we go, perfect. All right, got some turnip
launching action goin’ on. Got it, got it. So can I just launch this
at the star, would that win? No, okay, glad it didn’t work that way, because I would’ve had to
re-do the level anyways. What is that up there? Oh, look at that, sneaky
little question block. Whoa, here comes a mushroom. Okay, let’s make sure we get that, ’cause I would really
like to use the mushroom. Got it, 1-Up, I have seven lives now. Let’s look around for
anything more in the sky. Or even down below, this way,
just in the endless void. This reminds me of Mario Odyssey, while we’re looking for
the taxi in the sky. Okay, so we found one of the diamonds, but what about the rest of them? I mean, I can bust that. What about the rest of everything else? Weird, um, I’ll try to find what I can. But so far, this is rather tricky, ’cause I can only go up
ledges that have ladders, so I can go up like that, and
I can bust some of that stuff. What do we got here? Ooh, that’s a diamond, okay,
that makes it a bit easier. Now if we move back this way,
we got a little purple pipe, and on the other side, we have, oh, hey, you get back here,
you get back here, gotcha. There we go, quite easy. So let me make sure I get
all these coins as well, because you never know
what I might end up needing for the challenge, it might
be to get fifty coins, so we can just make sure
we get every single one, that’d be perfect. Okay, got it, and got it. So that’s 54 coins, that seems to be everything
in this little level. I love this level, this one was fun. It’s interesting how some
of them are really long. Well, not really long, but
longer than these ones. But these are the more fun ones, I wish these ones lasted a little longer. Okay, so there’s that done, course clear, and I hope that was the
challenge completed. Clear the course using only one shot. Well, I know how to do that, so that shouldn’t be too bad, but that is tricky, as well. Um, we can do that for sure, though. What I gotta do is first off
get rid of this guy if I can, so just plop on him, oh gosh, that didn’t quite work
the way I wanted it to. Whoop, oh no, no, no, no, Toad, run! I just wanna get rid of this guy ’cause it would make life easier. Oh, that didn’t work, you’re
such a little stinker. Okay, well, I can at
least make them retract. All I need to do when it comes
to one shot is to hit this. Got it, okay, so now
that I’ve gotten that, we’re gonna go ahead and try
to get this guy to run away, perfect, keep him in there,
do the same for this guy. And then for this guy,
he doesn’t seem like he’s too much of a problem,
we got it, we got it. Okay, so we took some damage, but we still got the challenge done with only one shot, we got the star. So there’s that check mark, let’s go in and get that Pixel Toad now. The Pixel Toad I really don’t
think is gonna be so tough, unless he’s really hidden somewhere, but there really isn’t too
many things you can move, so unless it’s just sort of
like at a weird perspective where you can only see
him through the cannon, or something weird like that, I don’t think this one’s gonna be too bad. We’re gonna find out together. Unless he’s like down under this way, but even that wouldn’t be
too much of a challenge. Let’s go ahead and sort of
zoom through the easy areas, these faces that don’t have
too much going on with them. And then we can look at some
more of the complex stuff. I usually, when I’m trying
to look for something, like in Where’s Waldo, right? I try to do things in little chunks. So I don’t see anything in this square, not in this square, nothing
here, nothing over here, and I’m trying to use the little pointer to guide us all though, so
we can get through together. I don’t see anything in
this area, and of course, perspective always matters. We might not see something from one side, but if we look at it
from a different angle, we might be able to find him. Now we’ve seen the little
Pixel Toad behind coins before, so we might wanna go and collect those. But I’m thinking that
it might be a good idea to at the least dodge
these guys, go through, and get rid of all these
dudes running around, because I feel like they’re
making things complicated, making it harder to
see what I need to see. Got ’em, okay, and then maybe
even behind that little brick. Oh, there he is! See, that’s why it’s worth
doing, you never know. And he was hiding behind
one of those piranha plants, so we got the Pixel Toad. That was worthwhile. Hey, okay, so there is
Turnip Cannon Jungle done. Now, oh wait, really that’s it? That one was really short. The last episode was like an hour long. Onward, Captain Toad. Wow, okay, so we’ll focus
on that in the next episode, but as you can see, we’ve gotten every level
done in this chapter, but we do have some extra time, so let’s go ahead and try
to get this mini-game done way back here, the Coins Galore. Last time we did this, we got 212 coins. I didn’t really know
what I was doing, though. I wanna try the other challenge, though. This one is with the little cherries. Let’s give it a shot. Oh, I should’ve gotten
some stuff from you. Oh, I’m such a dingus. Okay, let’s go ahead
and pull this stuff up. I guess I can throw
these turnips everywhere? Oh, I get it, we’re throwing
the turnips everywhere so we can hit these big lots of coins. There we go, we got a
1-Up, we’re past 212, okay, we got 225, our new high score. I didn’t even get a
mushroom from the Blue Toad at the beginning, ’cause I’m a dingus. All right, brand new score, cool. So I don’t know if that
did anything fancy, but I’m pretty happy about it. That’s actually really awesome, we’re all done for today’s episode, we’ll check out he next chapter, which is Onward, Captain
Toad, in the next episode, but for now, that is gonna wrap it up for today’s episode of
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker. Thank you guys so much for watching, I’ll see you next time, bye-bye.

    Try entering the amibo menu, and scanning a Wedding Amibo.
    You'll get early access to something that would normally only be available after completing the game.

    Edit: nvm, just saw that you don't have one.
    Vut don't worey, their unlock is not amibo exclusive.

    Toad can defeat enemies with a spin attack.
