Yoshi’s New Island, the Yoshi game Nintendo revealed earlier this year, is coming to Nintendo 3DS in spring 2014 in U.S. and Europe, the company announced during Nintendo Direct today.


The game is directed by Nintendo’s Takashi Tezuka, who has directed a number of Mario games, such as Super Mario World and worked as producer on Yoshi’s Island.


Yoshi’s New Island is being developed by Arzest in collaboration with Nintendo EAD.

    Crap. I…I kind of need this.

  • KingGunblader

    I was really excited for Yoshi’s New Island… then I remembered what New Super Mario Bros has become and now I’m… less excited.

  • LastFootnote

    Did anybody else play Yoshi’s Island DS? Admittedly I didn’t get very far in it, but it was garbage. A pale imitation of the original Yoshi’s Island made by a team who didn’t understand what made that game great. I don’t have high hopes for this one.

    EDIT: And what do you know? Yoshi’s New Island is being made by Arzest, a company formed by “key members” of Artoon, the company that made Yoshi’s Island DS. Pass.

      That in combination with the game looking rather ugly makes me want to wait until this is very cheap and even then only if it got decent reviews.

    • WyattEpp

      I’m glad I’m not the only one. Not only that, but the “modern” Yoshi sound effects never fail to completely enrage me. Very vexing.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    That gigantic EGG looks really cool. O_o” i guess i should get this game ASAP when it come out then.^_^

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    ……adding NEW to the title….. Make me kinda cringe

  • This still looks really rough. There is such a glaring mis-match of some of the flat crayon styled sprites and other things that look either pre-rendered or made with polygons. Maybe there is an effect in 3D thats not translating, but it also looks like frames of animation are missing and it was rushed. Plus the bad Yoshi track record Arzest has; Yoshi Island DS is very poor.
