Yoshi's New Island getting a limited 3DS console bundle


12:45 PM on 02.10.2014



Not that I'm complaining, but I am starting to get a bit confused at just how many limited edition 3DS's Nintendo plans on releasing. Is it to plant a "collect 'em all" mentality? Are the nostalgia mainlines every few months a business strategy to recapture old fans or prompt sporadic double dip purchases from existing 3DS players? 

Japan just got a nice Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy one, while a Yoshi's New Island console (bundled with the game, of course) popped up sans pictures on a retailer's website and subsequently had its veracity confirmed by IGN.

The bundle will be priced at $200, same as the Link Between Worlds 3DS XL, and available in North America on March 14, when Yoshi's New Island is expected. Don't have a 3DS yet but like Yoshi's Island so much that this is the system for you, sight unseen?

These Yoshi's New Island 3DS XL covers are colorful and cute

I don't know about you, but I'm partial to clear cases for my 3DS XL. Currently I'm rocking a $2 crystal cover so I can preserve my Pokémon X & Y design while still protecting the system. But these Yoshi's New Isla...more

Review: Yoshi's New Island

The original Yoshi's Island is one of my favorite Mario games of all time. I don't know if it's the numerous and remarkably unique boss battles or the whimsical charm of throwing strategically bounced eggs, but it r...more

This live action Yoshi commercial is bonkers

Have you ever wanted to see a giant Yoshi egg wreck someone's backyard? Well now you can. Nintendo has been loving these live action commercials for a while, and now there's a new one for Yoshi's New Island. Despite the ridiculousness of the concept, the video actually does a decent job of showing you some of the new features for the upcoming 3DS game. Our review drops on Thursday, by the way.more

Yoshi's New Island looks a bit better in this trailer

Yoshi's New Island is looking much better in this new trailer from today's Nintendo Direct presentation than it did in prior videos (though that's not saying a whole lot). This time around, we get to see new mechanics like m...more

This Yoshi's New Island trailer just makes me sad

I had thought that, with time, I'd come to accept -- or at least not outright despise -- the art direction of Yoshi's New Island. That's looking like a lost cause. Granted, the game doesn't hit 3DS until March 14, and suppos...more

Risk of Rain's new engine should mean less slowdown

Risk of Rain is a great little action platformer that'll make you feel like garbage before building you up into an unstoppable force of destruction. Try it, sometime! You can even bring friends along. Developer Hopoo Games ha...more

Slugcat gifs? Slugcat gifs

It's been a while since I've espoused my love for Rain World. It looks even smoother in this interesting Kickstarter update, as the game has transitioned to Unity. The update is a good read, but if you're just here for the gifs, well, I feel you. Ain't nothing wrong with that.more
