Nintendo has revealed the release dates of two upcoming games for the Switch and 3DS in 2019.
First is Yoshi's Crafted World for the Switch and the other one is Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn for the 3DS, both of which are scheduled to arrive in March.
Yoshi's Crafted World
Players take control of Yoshi, who's tasked with retrieving the gems of the Sundream Stone after they were scattered across the world when Kamek and Baby Bowser tried to steal the legendary artifact.
It's a platformer with stages made of paper cups and boxes and full of puzzles, collectibles, and the like. Players have to make it to the goal of each one, throwing eggs and gobbling enemies along the way.
To make things even more interesting, a stage can be played backward or in co-op mode up to two players.
Yoshi's Crafted World will be released exclusively for the Switch on March 2019.

Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn
Basically, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn is an upgraded version of the Kirby's Epic Yarn for the Wii. In contrast with Yoshi's Crafted World, its world is made of cloth and yarn, which the name pretty much suggests. It's also a platformer where players solve puzzles. It comes with all the stages from the Wii title. On top of that, it adds new features such as Ravel abilities and even a new Devilish mode for those who are up for a challenge. Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn will launch for the 3DS on March 8.

Nintendo is also making its Switch Online more compelling with two upcoming additions: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Blaster Master. These two titles are scheduled to be available on Jan. 16.
