Kirby and Yoshi’s latest adventures are both releasing in March

Nintendo has announced the release date of two of its upcoming exclusive titles, and both of them feature Nintendo mainstays.

Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn will release on the Nintendo 3DS on Friday 8th March, before Yoshi’s Crafted World makes its debut on the Nintendo Switch three weeks later on Friday 29th March.

Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn is a 3DS port of the immensely popular Wii game Kirby’s Epic Yarn. Developed by Good-Feel and released back in 2010, it featured Kirby being sent Patch Land, a world made out of nothing but fabric, and he must use that fabric to defeat his enemies. Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn will remain faithful to the original, featuring every stage that was available in the Wii version, but it will add new features such as the ability to “craft bigger yarn balls, summon bead-collecting wind and play two new modes featuring familiar faces King Dedede and Meta Knight.”

Yoshi’s Crafted World, meanwhile, is an original game that has also been developed by Good-Feel, this time exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. It will be the eight entry in the Yoshi series of games following 2015’s Yoshi’s Wooly World which was, funnily enough, a spiritual successor to Kirby’s Epic Yarn. Yoshi’s Crafted World will take place in “a world made of everyday objects—like boxes and paper cups!”. As Yoshi, you’ll be able to solve puzzles, gulp down enemies, collect eggs, and do all the other things that Yoshi usually does. Players will also be able to play each level backwards to find new hidden items.

As is always the case, both games are cute, side-scrolling platformers that keep up the Nintendo tradition of providing fantastic, character-based, family-friendly exclusives.
