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


Releasing March 14, 2014 for 3DS

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.
