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 metal giant eggs which allow Yoshi to sink underwater, a hyper dash move, and wings that let Yoshi hover even more than normal.
I'm still put off by the music and the transformation sections -- they just plain don't look, well, fun -- but I have warmed up to the art style after seeing the game in 3D.
