Yoshi's New Island Release Date Aims For March
Nintendo locks the release date for their Yoshi's Island sequel.
Yoshi's New Island, a sequel to quirky Mario spin-off Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, will be available for 3DS on March 14, Nintendo announced today. Nintendo had narrowed the game's release window to "spring 2014" during a Nintendo Direct broadcast in December.
We played Yoshi's New Island when it was first announced at E3 2013, and thought the game looked promising. With Takashi Tezuka, creative director of the original Yoshi's Island, at the helm Yoshi's New Island, fans of Yoshi and baby Mario's quirky adventure can hope for a faithful modernization of the game's sensibilities.
I'm so excited for this!! It'll be my child hood all over again! I just SO wish they would start releasing SNES games onto the 3DS shop, I so want to play Yoshi's Island on the go.
I wish they would re-use the same songs from the original. It was one of my all time favorite soundtracks and a huge part of the enjoyment I had with it as a kid. The DS sequel felt pretty flat to me, largely because of the inferior music. Worried this will be the same.
