YOSHI (Good-Feel/Nintendo – Switch – 2018) – A new take on the original, Yoshi was announced at E3 last year and has fans eagerly awaiting its release. Based on the released trailer (just down below), it has the vibe of a DIY project – like the developers gave their kids a bunch of cardboard, construction paper, and glue and told them to build game levels.
The much more substantially 3D Yoshi looks a little out of place running through the levels because of it, but that’s not going to stop anyone from buying and playing it. The thing that sets this side-scroller apart from previous Yoshi iterations is the flip screen; players can get a secondary view of their area by making Yoshi stomp the ground. It probably won’t be anyone’s game of the year, but it’ll be a solid addition to anyone’s Nintendo collection.
