Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Are we ever going to get a 3D Yoshi?

      So, I bought Mario Odyssey a few days ago and today I reached the part where you get to play as Yoshi. I have to say, I had a blast with that part of the Mushroom Kingdom level.

      That got me thinking, why don't we already have a 3D Yoshi game? We have already seen in Galaxy 2 that Yoshi works just fine in 3D, and Odyssey brings that point home. Woolly World was fun and I am sure the 2019 game is going to be just as fun, but it is time for something new for our favorite green dinosaur.

I always felt like tearaway is what a 3d Yoshi should be. Take that arts and crafts aesthetic and just go crazy with it and that would be a good Yoshi game



Yoshi's Story almost counts? For a game with just Yoshi, no Baby Mario, what would the game even be about? Yoshi's Story was really cheesy, but could serve as a conceptual starting point. Yoshi games are always a cuteness overload concept, like saving babies (ends up being less cute than it sounds), saving Yoshi's friends, or just trying to be cuddly and happy and live a cuddly, happy life. In all likelihood, Nintendo would start from there. I imagine from there it would play out like the Yoshi-centric sections of Mario's 3D games, but with a much cuter aesthetic.



Since the new Yoshi game feels very similar to Wooly World, getting a 3D game instead would've been way more interesting to me. There's plenty of Nintendo franchises that should go 3D or try it again to be honest. 3D Donkey Kong without the absurd amount of collectibles that DK64 had could be great, and I really want to see how a full-blown 3D Kirby would work.



Good idea. I hope we get it sometime.

Frankly, I thought wooly world sucked. Therefore, I'm not excited about the new Yoshi game. I'll probably give it a shot anyway, but not until I can get it used and return it if I don't like it. But, I definitely would pick up a 3D Yoshi game at launch.

I doubt we'll ever get a 3D Yoshi game sadly. I'd definitely like to see what they can accomplish with it though.

Nintendo seems a little bit unwilling to make 3D plattformers outside of Mario. Both Galaxy 2 and Odyssey shows that a 3D Yoshi could work so i wish they tried



Nothing to see here, move along

I'd love Nintendo to make more 3D platformers for their other franchises... Yoshi could be pretty interesting although I'm not sure where they'd go with it. I wouldn't mind a new 3D Donkey Kong though, but go all out on it, give me "Gorilla Warfare", where you sneak around a jungle and infiltrate kremling "bases" and beat King K. Rool up. Why would DK be doing this you ask? Maybe Diddy was kidnapped, or K. Rool stole his favourite banana, who knows? But let's see some Assassin's Creed level climbing added to the franchise, a whole jungle to climb and jump around!



Hahaha, of course. the famous "everything should go 3D 'cuz I want it so" entitlement argument.

Better luck next time, Kirby and Yoshi's core concept have always worked specifically for 2D(or 2.5D) purposes.

Not that it couldn't be done in 3D of course, but I don't trust them into making experiences that will thrive these concepts in the same way that their recent games already do well.

... I don't get it. And surely the argument could have been, and most likely was made, before Super Mario 64 released? Then look what happened, lol
