Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Yoshi's Crafted World is a title in the Yoshi franchise, the sixth main platform game starring Yoshi, and the follow-up to the Wii U title Yoshi's Woolly World, released for the Nintendo Switch on March 29, 2019. It was developed by Good-Feel, the developer behind Yoshi's Woolly World and its Nintendo 3DS port Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. As such, the game features similar elements from that game, having a hand-crafted look and Yoshi as a playable character. However, Yoshi is not made of yarn as he was in the last title, instead appearing to be made of a plush fabric-like material. The new gameplay feature is the ability to flip between the front and back of stages and to throw Yoshi Eggs on a three-dimensional plane, and the path Yoshi is able to follow is indicated by a yellow pathway. Players can also flip the perspective of levels in two-player mode if both Yoshis Ground Pound.
A demo of the game was released on the Nintendo eShop on February 13, 2019, which covers the first level of the game. In the demo, players have the option to play in either Classic or Mellow mode like in Yoshi's Woolly World. The demo also showed a souvenir hunt for five cardboard cows.
The Yoshis are seen resting on their island, gathered around the Sundream Stone, an artifact said to possess the power to make dreams come true. Suddenly, Kamek and Baby Bowser, who have heard the legend of the Sundream Stone, arrive at the island to take it for themselves. The Yoshis attempt to save the artifact from being stolen, which leads to its gems becoming detached. These gems are flung across multiple worlds, as are the Yoshis, Kamek, and Baby Bowser.
After the Yoshis collect all the gems, Kamek steals them and grants Baby Bowser’s wish, creating a robot and then transforms Baby Bowser into a giant. After he is defeated, the Yoshis restore the Sundream Stone and wish to go home.
*This boss is a mini-boss and therefore does not have a Dream Gem.
