Yoshi and Kirby fans will be thrilled to know that their next big adventures are coming soon. Nintendo has announced two big titles launching in March, each featuring the beloved characters in a beautiful handcrafted style.
Firstly, there’s Yoshi’s Crafted World, a new adventure and the first game starring Yoshi for Nintendo Switch. The platforming game launches exclusively on March 29.
In the game, you play as an adorable Yoshi exploring a big world crafted from household items like boxes and paper cups. Yoshi journeys through themed stages to solve puzzles and find hidden treasures. There’s a flip side – stages can be played backward, providing new perspectives for greater exploration. There’s also the challenge of finding Poochy-Pups hiding around the course. You can also join up with a friend to play through the game in two-player co-op.
Secondly, there’s Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, which launches for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on March 8.
This is the enhanced version of the acclaimed Kirby’s Epic Yarn, which was originally at home on the Wii. Here, Kirby is transported into a world made of cloth and yarn to unravel enemies, unzip secret passageways and transform into powerful vehicles. Every original stage is stitched in, along with some new features. Ravel Abilities power up Kirby in fun ways, new mini-games feature some familiar faces like King Dedede and Meta Knight, and new furniture is available to personalize and decorate Kirby’s Pad. Plus there’s a Devilish new mode that adds an extra layer of challenge to each stage.
Some of the Ravel Abilities include:
- a giant yarn ball used to attack enemies
- a wire sword that can slice through anything
- the Nylon ability, which can generate wind for jumping higher and collecting beads.
There are new amiibo functionalities in store for compatible Kirby series amiibo figures too. These give Kirby hats and abilities based on the figure used.
