Yoshi’s New Island Impressions

/ Jul 10th, 2013 No Comments

Yoshi's New Island

[adsense250itp]It seems that Yoshi and Baby Mario will be paired together once more for a unique comeback title on the 3DS. Yoshi’s New Island picks up many of the concepts and gameplay present in the Super NES hit Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. However, it also adds a few new features of its own, which will make it a delight for Nintendo and Yoshi lovers alike.

Quite noticeably, it has been awhile since Yoshi debuted in a new game focused purely on his own gameplay mechanics, making some of the reminiscent aspects of Yoshi’s New Island even more enjoyable than one can imagine. Players can work their way through levels in some of the ways that they have come to know the best; well-aimed egg-toss attacks, flutter-kicking, swallowing enemies, and the beloved ground-pound have returned to ensure that gamers and Yoshi can take Baby Mario to safety. True to the occurrences of the previous Yoshi’s Island title, Baby Mario will instantly take off to screaming and floating away in his bubble if his travels with Yoshi are disrupted by unexpected encounters with enemies within the world.

As the game’s title suggests, there are also a lot of new additions on Yoshi’s Island. One of the more obvious additions takes the form of a gigantic egg which can be thrown around within the levels in order to destroy certain areas and create new pathways of exploration. Although there are boss fights with appearances from predictable characters like Kamek, there are a lot of new bosses as well. A preview showed a brief battle with a character named Fang, who looks like a round version of a bat. Another scene depicted a level where incredibly huge Shy Guys were skipping around throughout their portion of the island. Some of the other enemies players will encounter while playing Yoshi’s New Island include Piranha Plants, Gusties, Grinders, Lantern Ghosts, Fly Guys, Crazee Dayzees and Cheep-Cheeps.

Although there have already been some mixed responses to the sneak peek provided with the visual demo, Yoshi’s New Island remains a promising title out of Nintendo’s offerings at E3 this year. Both fun and nostalgic, the new approach to adventuring on Yoshi’s Island keeps things fresh by providing an updated storyline and decent graphics. It lacks the almost-retro style that was present in the previous Yoshi’s Island DS title, but somehow manages to accommodate the memorable style of graphics from Yoshi Story for Nintendo 64, which may be an attention grabber for some die-hard Yoshi fans. Whether balancing a volatile Baby Mario or fluttering aptly after red coins, this new 3DS title is guaranteed to keep Yoshi fans on their toes and waiting for more.
