There’s More Than One Side to Yoshi on Nintendo Switch – E3 2017

There’s More Than One Side to Yoshi on Nintendo Switch – E3 2017

Nintendo needs to be careful, otherwise they are going to run out of cute graphical styles to use in representing Mario’s dinosaur pal, Yoshi.

Originally born with a crayon motif on the Super NES title: Yoshi’s Island, Nintendo has had a history of experimenting with the series’ visual presentations. Most recently, the Wii U iteration of the world’s favorite dinosaur platforming hero featured an adorable yarn style in Yoshi’s Woolly World.

Now Yoshi is back in a new self-titled platform title for the Nintendo Switch. This time the designers decided to imagine the game’s world as a sort of fun cardboard diorama.

While the new style acts as a way to visually set the game apart from other games on the market, it also acts as a catalyst for new gameplay opportunities.

The stages in Yoshi each have multiple sides to them. Moving into the background and foreground opens up new avenues for exploration, and of course, a multitude of secrets for players to find.

Yoshi made a stop Wednesday at the Nintendo Treehouse booth during E3 2017 for a full gameplay demonstration, which you can check out for yourself down below.

Yoshi is scheduled for release on the Nintendo Switch in 2018.

Are you ready to explore every nook and cranny of Yoshi? Let us know in the comments section below.
