The cute little cluster of Yoshi’s will be here soon! Nintendo announced that Yoshi’s Crafted World is releasing worldwide on March 29. Originally they had only given a timeframe of “Spring,” so this is coming right at the start of the season. Hopefully that means a couple more surprises are in store before summer!
Along with the launch date they’ve shared a new story mode trailer that introduces us to the plot:
More details are below and on Nintendo’s website:
As Yoshi, you’ll leap up high, gulp down enemies, and set out on a treasure hunt to find all the different collectables. On the flip side, stages can be played backwards, providing new perspectives to explore and new ways to locate some of the more craftily hidden items!
It all started when Kamek and Baby Bowser set out to steal a gem-set stone. Legend has it that this fabled artifact can grant the bearer their wildest dreams! But when the artifact’s gems are sent flying, it falls upon Yoshi and friends to find them. Luckily, saving the day can be cooperative and challenging. Pass a Joy-Con™ controller to a friend to team up as fellow Yoshis. Also, Mellow mode gives Yoshi wings for a breezier experience, which may come in handy! Finding all the flowers, coins, and Poochy Pups is no small feat! For extra protection, suit up in one of the handicraft costumes you can unlock in-game!
– Explore each stage and then find even more secrets by making your way through the stage backwards on the flip side!
– Overcome varied enemies and obstacles, like Zombie Guys, Skelesaurus, Ukiki, and Monty Mole as you seek out hidden collectables
– Pass a Joy-Con™ controller to a friend for 2-player cooperative exploration
– Clad Yoshi in collectable, protective, handicraft costumes as he makes his way through each stage
