Where physics may be your greatest enemy…

This month’s IGN First game is Yoshi’s Crafted World, the next big first-party platformer from the kings of the genre at Nintendo. In the above video, I played through the ‘Weighing Acorns’ stage in the Acorn Forest world with Nintendo Treehouse developer Lindsey Newman. You’ll see physics-based puzzle mechanics shown off as we try to find all of the level’s collectibles while still making it through the stage alive. We do plenty of accidental trolling of each other, but in the end, we make it – and then the stage flips! Yes, you literally play the opposite side of the level, as if you physically walked around to the other side of the left-to-right stage and ran it back the opposite way. But as you’ll see, the objectives change, which helps keep you on your toes.

IGN First is our monthly, purely editorially driven initiative where we take a deeper dive into the games we’re most excited about. We’ll have more stages to reveal and costumes to show off in Yoshi’s Crafted World both next week and all month long, leading up to our review and its release later this month. And if you enjoy the video above, feel free to also check out our recent preview video below, which showcased a different stage.
