When it comes to the Super Nintendo, most Mario fans would agree that Super Mario World is the best Mario game on the platform. While technically not a Mario game, some fans would argue that Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island is the superior game thanks to its vibrant visuals and innovative gameplay. Well, those fans are finally getting a second chance to prove Yoshi’s greatness in March with Yoshi’s New Island.
In the latest trailer for Yoshi’s New Island, Nintendo invites us to have “a shell of a time” because Yoshi lays eggs. Also, puns are fun, especially when it lets Nintendo retain its kid-friendly image while alluding to a mild profanity.
As for the game itself, it looks like a new Yoshi’s Island game. Players will have to navigate Yoshi through platforming challenges while protecting Baby Mario who’s riding on his back. Yoshi’s transformation ability is also back with the trailer showing the dinosaur transforming into a mine cart and helicopter.
Yoshi’s New Island will be available March 14 for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS.
