Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Yoshi Switch “making really good progress”, some updates on it later in 2018.

Trinen’s full words:

“It’s actually been making really good progress. They decided they wanted to make some improvements, so they’re going to take just a little bit more time on it and that’s why we’re not showing it this year at the show. But I think you can look forward to some updates on it later in 2018.”

Yoshi definitely seems like it will be Q1 2019. Switch game.

This sounds like retooling the concept. I guess they took the feedback to heart.

In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

Hopefully it's a high-quality enough title to count on Cerebralbore's list of BIG games for Switch 2019(™)

I hope so too. :)

 

In all seriousness, I'm looking forward to it.



Hopefully they're spending the extra time to overhaul the gameplay cos what they showed at E3 2017 just didn't look fun at all, it looked painfully tedious moving slowly through the level stopping to shoot every foreground and background object with an egg, not being able to flip the level mid-run and having to play it again and try to remember what was on the other side.

It looked about as exciting as watching treacle flowing down the side of a glacier.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I mean, it wouldn't be the first game to show much worse than it plays.

Though I am starting to wonder if Good Feel is just a sub-par partner for Nintendo.  This is the second time they've missed a deadline with a fairly straightforward project.  Granted it looked very pretty but I see no real reason it should miss it's target date when games like Kirby, Mario, and even Xenoblade hit theirs.



Thats good and all.... but still no Pikmin update.......



Pocky Lover Boy!

Yeah Good Feel are useless when it comes to productivity, games like this and Woolly World should've taken 2 years to make, not 4-5.

Woolly World was made in 2.5-3 years not 4-5 years, also they had some other projects in same time period.

But what is far more important than deadline is actual product at end, and past 2D platforms they devolped like Kirby's Epic Yarn and Yoshi's Woolly World were very good games (personaly for me they are one of best 2D platformers last 10 years), and I dont have any doubt that this new Yoshi will also be very good game.



So... info will come in later 2018, which means it will show up on the event focused on 2019 games that Nintendo mentioned right before E3. I mean, I saw this coming, but it’s good to see even more confirmation. It should be an amazing Direct, probably better than the one at E3.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won
