Remember those special Captain Toad levels from Super Mario 3D World?  The ones in which you had to get the Toad Captain from Mario Galaxy to the end of a square course without hitting enemies, while collecting three Green Stars? The ones in which you couldn’t jump because Nintendo wanted it to be all about ‘puzzle solving’?

You can see the box art for the game in either the post thumbnail or the full post.  As for why it’s actually being released in stores rather than as an eShop game… well, that seems to be a pattern with Nintendo and Wii Sports games in Japan.  The original one wasn’t actually packaged with the Wii and was too being sold in shops at full price. Guess some people over there seem to prefer buying games in actual physical boxes rather than as digital downloads.
