Giving credibility to a long-running internet joke, dialogue from the Wii’s Fortune Street seems to suggest that Yoshi tries to avoid paying his taxes.

Pointed out by Twitter user Supper Mario Broth, the only documented case of in-game evidence of Yoshi avoiding his taxes comes from the money-centric party game.

Apparently, out of the 26 characters in the game, Yoshi is the only one to ask for exemption from paying his dues when a player constructs a new tax office.

The proof within the pudding can be viewed in all of its glory below.


A new Yoshi game was Switch was announced at last year’s E3. After it missed E3 2018, Nintendo said that the title had been delayed out of 2018 and would be showing up again a bit later.

We could be receiving an update on the project during the next Nintendo Direct. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for the presentation after it was pushed back following the earthquake in Hokkaido, but we’re hearing reports that folks are seeing a new name “Yoshi’s Crafted World” on Nintendo’s North American website.

After unveiling Yoshi for Switch last year, the game was nowhere to be seen at this year’s E3. We previously heard that the game would be shown later in 2018 instead.

IGN also asked for an update on the project from Nintendo’s Bill Trinen. Trinen was able to confirm that it’s still on track and “making really good progress.” The reason it’s taking a bit of extra time is to implement a few improvements.

Yoshi isn’t present at E3, but there’s been a lot of talk about the game. Nintendo said yesterday that it will be shown off later in 2018, and we later saw it listed as a 2019 title on the company’s website. The Big N has officially confirmed this, so Yoshi’s new game won’t be ready until next year.



With Yoshi’s absence from E3 this year, it was expected that the game won’t be appearing anytime soon. Nintendo’s website further points to this. According to an official listing, Yoshi is hitting Switch sometime in 2019.
