Nintendo has announced that Yoshi’s latest 3DS adventure, Yoshi’s New Island, will be launching on March 14th. Rendered in multiple art styles that give it a fairytale-like charm (which looks kinda “eh” in screenshots, but I said the same thing about A Link Between Worlds, and that game is beautiful in motion), Yoshi’s New Island is bringing back butt stomps, flailing arm long jumps, and digesting the souls of your enemies to turn them into ammunition eggs.
Yoshi’s New Island is the sequel to one of my favorite platformers, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, and takes place in a new location called Egg Island. Baby Luigi has been kidnapped YET AGAIN, and only Yoshi and Baby “My crying will haunt your every waking and sleeping moment” Mario can rescue him.
Gamers who pre-order Yoshi’s latest adventure will receive an “eggcellent” goody: a Yoshi Egg Game Case to hold your 3DS games! Players can pre-order the game at local retailers or right here (the Yoshi Egg Case has only been announced for the UK so far).
I’m excited to touch fuzzy and get dizzy all over again in March; any of you readers getting “eggcited” about Yoshi’s New Island?
