Game Description

Everyone's favorite egg-spittin' dinosaur is back in a new 3DS platformer. The next entry in the Yoshi's Island series, Yoshi's New Island, continues in the style of recent Yoshi games, so it's all oil painting and crayon-style visuals mixed with fanciful platforming gameplay. In Yoshi's New Island, the titular dinosaur will use his powerful flutter jumps, ground pounds, egg throws, and other new abilities to traverse levels and rescue Baby Mario and Baby Luigi. The controls are superb - no one can fine-tune a platformer like Nintendo - and the game even takes advantage of the unique control abilities of the 3DS.
