Though we recently had a pretty impressive Nintendo Direct Mini this week, evidence suggests that an even bigger showcase could be right around the corner. With speculation high, many are looking to see what brand new titles could be making their way over to the Big N's hybrid console - instead of just the (admittedly cool) ports. Enter a new retail listing that shows off Yoshi and when Switch fans can expect the new game.

According to Amazon Italy, fans of the beloved companion can see the standalone title on June 29th, 2018! The listing is currently still live, which is an interesting sign. The Amazon listing has it set at the June date, though other Amazon region websites still have it listed for the December 28th date. With an influx of releases set for late spring, early summer - the June window would make more sense when looking at the game lineup as a whole.

The Nintendo main site has it at an undisclosed 2018 release, but these sort of leaks do happen and they aren't as rare as you might thing. Does this mean we are getting our favourite green friend a lot sooner than anticipated? It's definitely possible! For now, the listing is still up and can be seen here. You can also pre-order the game on Amazon US with a 20% discount for Prime members.
