One of the surprise title announcements from the Nintendo Spotlight presentation was Yoshi for the Nintendo Switch. During the E3 live stream, the Treehouse team revealed that players would be able to interact with the level’s background like never before. Of the levels shown, each was set within a household area as a stage or diorama, giving players access to both the foreground and the background in order to complete the level or find hidden collectibles, making for an interesting twist on the platform formula.
Taking inspiration from Yoshi’s Woolly World, Paper Mario: Color Splash and Chibi Robo: Zip Lash, Yoshi for Nintendo Switch is entirely built from household objects and decorated with corrugated cardboard, cardboard rolls, spirals, string, ribbons and confetti to name just a few. While you can play the game in single player mode, co-operative play makes a return and lets players work together to locate hidden items, work out puzzles and even ground pound together to switch between foreground and background. Items such as smiley flowers, coins and egg baskets are also back, as is traditional in the franchise. Yoshi will release on Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018.
