‘Kirby’ and ‘Yoshi’ Get Release Dates in March

‘Kirby’ and ‘Yoshi’ Get Release Dates in March

That's because two big Nintendo adventures are launching that month - each featuring a attractive handcrafted style, platforming gameplay for players of all ages and beloved Nintendo characters.

"Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn" is coming first on March 5, and "Yoshi's Crafted World" rounds out the end of the month with a release of March 29. The game has a handcrafted look, as well, as the world is crafted from everyday items, like paper cups and boxes, according to the press release. On the flip side, stages can be played backward, providing new perspectives to explore and the challenge to find Poochy-Pups that are hiding around the course. This being a Nintendo Switch title, you can play the game as a two-player co-op. While Crafted World isn't a direct follow up to 2015's Yoshi's Wooly World, there seems to be at least some relation between the two games.

Announced all the way back in June of 2017, the adorably cute Yoshi's Crafted World has finally been given a release date by Nintendo. I'm not sure how many of you are looking to relive that laid-back experience, but Nintendo has added mini-games, more decorations for Kirby's Pad, and a Devilish mode for an extra challenge.

Nintendo has also incorporated amiibo support in the form of "Kirby hats and abilities", so you'll have another reason to bust out your figures before sending them back to wherever it is they're stashed.

Kirby's Epic Yarn is one of the best games the series has ever had, bursting at the seams with color, creativity, and silky smooth animation.
