Back during E3 2017, Nintendo unveiled a new Yoshi game for Nintendo Switch. The latest adventure of Mario’s dinosaur friend was slated to come out sometime in 2018, but after it was absent from this year’s E3, Nintendo confirmed that it’s been delayed to 2019. Nintendo has been largely quiet on the upcoming game, but it looks like that’s changing soon. In fact, one key detail has already leaked.
Nintendo was planning to hold a Nintendo Direct presentation this evening, but they opted to delay it after an earthquake struck Japan. However, it seems a Nintendo website update went out in anticipation of the Direct, potentially revealing some of the news it will hold. Specifically, some users have noticed a recommendation for “Yoshi’s Crafted World” popping up while perusing the online store
Obviously, Nintendo has not yet officially commented on this potential leak, and we don’t expect them to. The Direct will soon be rescheduled, and we’ll likely see the announcement then.
Looks like Nintendo leaked something ahead of time, even for the previously scheduled Direct.
