Everyone’s favorite dinosaur will star in his very own action-adventure platformer on Nintendo Switch.

A title for the game wasn’t provided other than “Yoshi”, but a look at the in-development title was shown in a short trailer. Some scenes kind of gives us a bit of a Paper Mario vibe, which isn’t a bad thing at all.

Nintendo said in the game’s description that everything we’ve come to “expect from side-scrolling games” will be tuned “upside down.”

The game will feature a big world “decorated like a miniature diorama” in a new art style for the franchise.

Each side-scrolling stage has both a main path and a hidden path that offers different views and surprises.

And, you can play it along with another person in co-op.

It is a really nice looking game, and with co-op, it could be rather fun. Or without co-op for that matter.

The new title starring Yoshi will be released for Nintendo Switch in 2018.
