In 2017 Nintendo announced that they would be launching a standalone Yoshi game for the Nintendo Switch. The game was initially targeted for launch in 2018, but it ended up getting delayed where it was later pushed to 2019. For those who have been looking forward to it, you’ll be pleased to learn that we now have an official date to look forward to.


Nintendo has since announced that the game, now officially known as Yoshi’s Crafted World, will be released for the Switch on the 29th of March, 2019. “In the game, you play as an adorable Yoshi exploring a big world crafted from household items like boxes and paper cups, journeying through each themed stage to solve puzzles and find hidden treasures.”

Nintendo is calling the game “handcrafted” due to the way that the game is designed which doesn’t use fancy graphics and instead features levels crafted by hand. We suppose it’s not necessarily a game for everyone and seems to be targeted at a younger audience, but if you love Yoshi and see him as more than just a sidekick of Mario, then perhaps this could be worth checking out.

The game is priced at $60 and more details can be found on Nintendo website.
