Nintendo's 2018 E3 presentation left a lot of unanswered questions regarding games that were expected to be explored; with a huge focus on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and a little on Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, no time was left over for any news on the likes of Metroid Prime 4, the upcoming Pokémon RPG, or Yoshi for Nintendo Switch.
Soon after the E3 Direct, the upcoming Yoshi title's game page on Nintendo's website hinted at a delay to 2019, with Nintendo of America's Bill Trinen going on to confirm that this is indeed the case. Trinen has now gone into a little more detail surrounding the game's delay and non-appearance at the show, telling IGN that it's been making some good progress behind the scenes.
"It's actually been making really good progress. They decided they wanted to make some improvements, so they're going to take just a little bit more time on it and that's why we're not showing it this year at the show, but I think you can look forward to some updates on it later in 2018."
As always, all that's left for us to do is play the waiting game, hoping to see more of Yoshi later this year as suggested. Despite delays being upsetting at first, having additional time for a major project such as this is almost always a good thing; if the wait means we'll see a higher quality end result, we're all for it.
