Yoshi’s Crafted World
This spring, Nintendo will release Yoshi’s Crafted World for Nintendo Switch. The sequel to Yoshi’s Woolly World, released in 2015 on the Wii U, Yoshi’s Crafted World will place Yoshi and his friends in a plush-created environment! Featuring 2-player co-op, this charming 2D platformer will bring you through multiple worlds to save their island’s Sundream Stone from Kamek and Baby Bowser!
Yoshi’s Crafted World features traditional 2D platforming at its finest. With the classic SNES title, Yoshi’s Island, as its main inspiration, this title will feature many creative elements. Among them include the ability to flip the stage vertically or even horizontally!
Yoshi can eat enemies to create Eggs. He’ll use them to toss them back at enemies, hit switches, or even solve puzzles. Moreover, thanks to co-op, you can also have a buddy covering your back as well!
Yoshi’s Story (N64) and Yoshi’s Woolly World (Wii U) are independent from the Yoshi’s Island titles. This is because they do not feature rescuing Baby Mario. In addition, they feature a unique art style based on coloring, paper craft, or other form of artistry, such as yarn.
The developer, Good-Feel, has created several successful platformer titles for Nintendo systems. Among these include Wario Land: Shake It! and Kirby’s Epic Yarn, both which were released for Nintendo Wii. In addition, Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, a port of the latter title, will come to the 3DS later this year.

Yoshi’s Woolly World was a success on the Nintendo Wii U, selling 1.52 million copies worldwide. The title was later ported to Nintendo 3DS, titled Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World. For fans looking to tide their wait over and try a quality Yoshi game, I personally recommend the title for whatever system you can get it on.
New Nintendo 3DS owners can increase the game’s framerate to 60 FPS, akin to the Wii U version. Furthermore, the 3DS version also features extra content, such as new stages.
Finally, the new plush Yoshi appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an alternate costume!
Yoshi’s Crafted World releases March 29, 2019 for Nintendo Switch. Be sure to check back on our site for more details as they’re released.
