E3 2017: Yoshi Gets A New Adventure

One of the more surprising reveals from Nintendo's E3 2017 presentation is an all-new game that follows Yoshi, the breakout dinosaur star from the Super Mario series. Simply titled Yoshi, the game looks to follow in the same vein as Yoshi's Story for the Nintendo 64, or even Yoshi's Island from way back in the Super Nintendo days.

The new title looks to place 2D-based gameplay in a 3D world where Yoshi can collect and throw eggs at different objects in the environment. Using various switches, Yoshi can also flip the game's perspective, allowing players access to the reverse sides of walls and the interiors of buildings.

It could be said that Yoshi looks to take its visual inspiration from the likes of LittleBigPlanet, but that's not a bad thing. The homemade-craft aesthetic certainly seems to work for the gameplay here, particularly if players themselves are able to dictate the direction of the action.

We'll likely learn more about Yoshi's latest outing in the coming months, as Yoshi is set to release for the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018.
