Yoshi’s Crafted World is purposefully easy, developer says

Love it or hate it, Yoshi’s Crafted World was purposefully designed to be easy, a developer at Feel-Good has confirmed.

“While there may be some players wanting the same play challenge as Yoshi’s Island, I think there may also be players who want to enjoy the world but find the gameplay bewildering,” Assistant Producer, Nobuo Matsumiya, told Nintendo Dream.

“Because we want people to enjoy the Yoshi world we have created, we were aiming for a difficulty that allows players to have fun. Even though the game is designed around collecting flowers in order to advance to the next area, within each course it’s not only about the flowers but also the Poochy puppies on the reverse side, as well as finding all those crafting materials. That means players can play the levels over and over to collect everything.”

We didn’t mind Yoshi’s Crafted World but did point to a relatively easy experience that got infinitely better in certain, challenging levels in our review.

Yoshi’s Crafted World is available now on Nintendo Switch.

  • Outside of Yoshi’s Island and Yoshi’s Island DS. All the games featuring Yoshi have been easy if you go straight to the finish. Like the Kirby series. The real challenge has been finding all the secrets.
