Nintendo Direct: New Yoshi's Island coming to 3DS

Eggs on my face!

New Yoshi's Island for the 3DS! New Yoshi's Island for the 3DS! Oh my God, you guys! Iwata dropped the bomb.

From the footage and screens, this new Yoshi's Island sequel will use all the same abilities as in past installments, like the flutter jump, egg throw, and ground pound. There will also be new 3DS features, though those will be announced soon.

I'm not entirely crazy about the graphical style, which opts for a rendered look versus the original's thick-outlined storybook design. That won't stop me, however! Merely a minor shortcoming.

A release date and proper title will be announced at a later date.
