Yoshi’s Crafted World has leaked as Yoshi for Nintendo Switch’s final title, the dinosaur-like character’s new side-scrolling adventure that’s destined to release exclusively on the portable home console.
After this week’s Nintendo Direct was delayed in the wake of the tragic earthquake in Hokkaido, the title had replaced the placeholder on Nintendo of America’s website long enough for someone to spot the momentary blip.
Yoshi for Nintendo Switch was revealed at E3 2017 and became the first Nintendo-developed game to use Unreal Engine 4. After it was absent at E3 2018, Nintendo announced that the game had been delayed into 2019 but went on to add that its development had “been making really good progress.”
The action-platformer will let players explore a world that has been decorated like a miniature diorama, where each stage has both a front side and flip side that will reveal hidden secrets and surprises.
Yoshi’s Crafted World will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2019.
