We’ve been hearing for a while that there were a lot of titles being made for the Nintendo Switch that were using the Unreal Engine 4. As one of the most powerful gaming engines out there, it gave a lot of credibility to the system. But of the rumored 20 games being made with the engine, we didn’t know a lot of them, but now, we at least know one more.

For example, at one point during development they considered leaving Yoshi out of the toolbox.
if you’ve been wondering what happened to that giant yarn Yoshi Nintendo promised us back at E3, wonder no more. This week the company finally committed to a release date for the coveted stuffed dinosaur: November 15, 2015. Its official name is Mega Yarn Yoshi.
