Yes! We have a release date for Yoshi's Crafted World!

News by Matt S.

Is there a more charming-looking game out there than Yoshi's Crafted World? That was a rhetorical question, because the answer is "no."

One of the hottest looking games on the Switch lineup from Nintendo this year, Yoshi's Crafted World will land on our consoles on March 29. It's actually part of a double feature of cute, because Nintendo is also publishing Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn on the Nintendo 3DS on March 9 - as good of a reason as any to dust off that legacy console.

From the press release:

In Yoshi’s Crafted World players take control of a Yoshi exploring a big world crafted from household items like boxes and paper cups, navigating each themed stage to solve puzzles and find hidden treasures. On the flip side, stages can be played backwards, providing new perspectives to explore and the challenge to find Poochy-Pups that are hiding around the course. Players can even join up with a friend to play through the game in two-player co-op.

In Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, an enhanced version of the acclaimed Kirby’s Epic Yarn that was originally released for the Wii system, Kirby is transported into a world made of cloth and yarn to unravel enemies, unzip secret passageways and transform into powerful vehicles. Every stage in the original Wii version is stitched in, but this Nintendo 3DS version has some new features, like new Ravel Abilities that power up Kirby in fun ways, new mini-games featuring familiar faces King Dedede and Meta Knight, new furniture to personalise and decorate Kirby’s Pad, and a new Devilish mode that adds an extra layer of challenge to each stage.

With a couple of Koei Tecmo titles (including two Dead or Alives!) also releasing in March... I suspect we're going to be all very busy that month.
