An online retailer may have given away the release date of Nintendo’s upcoming Yoshi game.
Online Australian retailer Sanity currently lists Yoshi with a shipping date of June 30th, 2018. While this alone isn’t much to go off of, it does line up broadly with a previous date given by a second retailer: Amazon Italy. According to Game Rant, a now-removed listing from the Italian side of Amazon initially listed the game as releasing on June 29th.
While Nintendo hasn’t said anything about the game’s release beyond a vague “2018,” the latest Direct Mini doesn’t contradict a June release date. That Direct seemed to cover only the next few months of releases, with the latest date given occurring in May. Yoshi wasn’t mentioned, which means that we probably won’t see the game before May—but might still see it in June. Since E3 takes place in June, it’s also possible that Nintendo is saving its summer game announcements for the show.
While June 29th and June 30th are likely placeholder dates, they might still be a good indicator of when we’ll see Yoshi. With any luck, we’ll see the friendly green dinosaur sometime this June, or at least this summer. Yoshi, which is still a working title for the game, is exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
