Yoshi’s New Island Hatches on Nintendo 3DS

3DS_YoshisNewIslandOn Friday, Yoshi’s New Island launched for Nintendo 3DS. In Nintendo‘s new platform adventure, Yoshi traverses a variety of worlds to help Baby Mario reunite with his kidnapped brother. The third game in the beloved Yoshi’s Island series, it features inventive transformations, giant eggs, colorful art styles, and a new multi-player mode.

Similar to previous Yoshi games, the title character can swallow enemies using his long tongue and turn them into eggs, which can be thrown to overcome challenges. This time, two giant eggs enter the mix: The massive Mega Eggdozer, which plows through environments and opens up new areas; and the Metal Eggdozer, which can roll over enemies or be used to explore underwater areas.

Nintendo has also launched a green Yoshi Edition Nintendo 3DS XL system featuring an image of Yoshi on the front, as well as cute eggs on the back.
