Mario’s little green dinosaur buddy, Yoshi, is no stranger to occasionally going it alone on adventures. Yoshi’s Crafted World is actually his eighth time doing so, following on from his yarn-themed side-scrolling romp in Yoshi’s Woolly World back in 2015 on the Wii U. That game most recently saw a port on the Nintendo 3DS, but it’s nothing compared to the arts and craft fun set to take place in Yoshi’s Crafted World for the Nintendo Switch.
Every level in the game has been faithfully imagined as if it was made in real-life by hand, with everything from platforms, vehicles and buildings boasting a true papercraft feel. And now, thanks to every level in Yoshi’s Crafted World being playable in reverse as well as forward, players will get to see this stitched-together Nintendo magic in all its glory. Prepared to have the charm turned up to 11 as you guide little Yoshi up and over this colourful world.
Yoshi’s Crafted World is also fully playable in two-player couch co-op, where you and a friend can each break off a Joy-Con and get fully immersed in all the papery platforming fun it has to offer. Every stage is littered with coins to collect, enemies to topple and smiley flowers to seek out. You’ll need to seek all of them out in order to achieve 100% completion, giving Nintendo Switch players even more reasons to return to this new rendition of Yoshi’s cute, fluffy world.
Standout features in Yoshi’s Crafted World
As one of the few original first-party side-scrollers developed from the ground up for Nintendo Switch (Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe both appeared on the Wii U previously) Yoshi’s Crafted World offers both kids and kids at heart one of the most charming-looking Nintendo Switch adventures yet. Here are just some of the game’s standout features.
