Nintendo had surprises for all their fans at E3, including those of their star dinosaur. Yoshi, like Kirby, Metroid, and Pokemon, is coming to the Switch.
The tentatively titled Yoshi keeps the wool art style from 2015’s Yoshi’s Wooly World on Yoshi’s character model but the gameworld is made of cardboard and paper.
The gameplay will add an extra dimension to the traditional 2D platformer design. The game features the ability to flip the world. Doing so reveals a new setup for the area that Yoshi can explore with 3D movement. Think Super Paper Mario. This ability is used in puzzle solving as it allows Yoshi to progress down otherwise impassable routes and discover secret areas. Each stage will have items to find as well. The game will also feature two-player cooperative play.
Yoshi will arrive in 2018. Check out the trailer below.
