Video: Yoshi's New Island E3 Trailer

Posted by Orla Madden

Yoshi and Baby Mario are cuter than ever

A Nintendo Direct broadcast back in April gave us a small glimpse of a new Yoshi's Island game in development for the 3DS, but very few details were given at the time.

Its debut trailer has now emerged confirming the title of Yoshi's upcoming adventure, Yoshi's New Island, and features the cartoonish art style we've grown to love in the series.

Classic Yoshi abilities will be available in the new addition, as well as new moves. Different worlds feature a variety of art styles; oil, watercolour and pastels.

A release date wasn't confirmed, however a "holiday season" window was mentioned. Check out the E3 trailer below, and prepare to be totally relaxed with its soothing music.

This doesn't look quite as exciting as I had hoped. Still, I look forward to seeing more.

I think the art style is awful. I loved the hand drawn sprites on the SNES and the DS version. The environments look bland and lifeless to me.

What do you mean, finally making a sequel? Guess you never heard of Yoshi's Island DS that came out in (I thinK) 2006.

A holiday season release? That's surprising, considering how the game seemed to be early in development. Looks like the latter part of this year will be platformer-heavy with Mario, Donkey Kong, and now Yoshi.

I'm really not impressed by this. Gameplay looks bland and the graphics actually look kind of gross.

Is it me, or wasn't this announced in the European Direct? Maybe my stream was lagging when it happened.

I love the idea of changing art styles. That kind of thing has always appealed to me. I'll keep my eye on this one.

I can understand people disliking the art style compared to the old ones, but the gameplay looks typically amazing!

Yoshi's Island is firmly in my top 5 games, and yes, I'd prefer the hand-drawn style - but the idea of different art styles as the game progresses sounds excellent. Let's wait and see.

Looks very sparse and unfinished. I'm not a huge fan of the Yoshi series to be honest, so I can't see that perspective changing. I love Ninty platformers, but I think this might be one too far..... the resources could have been put into a new racer for example....

music is beyond terrible, sounds like something Sega will use on their commercials to make SNES games seem dull...... graphics are kinda ugly too..... thing I will pass on this one unless future footage is significantly better

I think it looks great, I can't wait to play it! It's like Yoshi's story meets Yoshi's island. The biggest problem: Yoshi's baby-voice.

Love platformers. 3D, 2D I take them all. Yoshi's Island? Not so much. Don't know why, but I didn't care for the SNES/GBA game. It's too slow perhaps.

The first one on the SNES was such a great game. I didn't play the DS sequel but I'm glad that they are making another one in the series. I will definitely pick this one up when it's released.

@ferthepoet and it seems developed by Arzest/Artoon, responsible of the DS episode which was inconsistent and average in its design, nothing compared to the masterpiece that was Yoshi's Island in its time... it is still fun to play today btw
I can't understand all those positive comments here, did people really played Yoshi's Island ?
