Yoshi Switch Release Date
When Yoshi Switch was first announced back at E3 2017 by Nintendo, it was revealed that a 2018 release date was on the cards. We’ve heard nothing else about the game since then, but if the release window of this year is still planned, then we’ll definitely be getting some information from Nintendo later today, on June 12.
Yoshi Switch Gameplay Trailer
The Yoshi game for the Nintendo Switch was debited in a brief trailer for the first time on June 13 at E3 2017, where we saw the traditional green Yoshi running around various 2.5D areas, with a bunch of eggs in tow.
Like previous Yoshi games, such as 2015’s Yoshi’s Wooly World for the Wii U, the Yoshi we play as in the upcoming Switch game is made of wool, but the environment around him appears to be made out of a combination of papier-mache and cardboard, which the player can then interact with, as we see Yoshi knocking down the front of buildings in order to activate the flip mechanic, taking you to the other side of the map and giving you a new perspective on puzzles.
We can also see a red Yoshi join the green variant at one point, meaning that this game for the Switch might support two players on one Switch console, using one joycon each. Alternatively, Yoshi Switch could support online co-op using a drop-in drop-out feature, where players can join up at any time. One thing we do know for certain is that Yoshi Switch will be made using Unreal Engine, as revealed by Epic Games Senior Marketing Manager, Dana Cowley.
