The game is being produced by Takashi Tezuka, the creative director of the original Yoshi’s Island for Super NES. Yoshi reunites with Baby Mario in a gorgeous landscape to help him to safety. Flutter jumps, ground pounds and egg throws all return, along with some new actions that use the unique features of Nintendo 3DS.

The main flaw of this game is the controls. Yoshi feels very sluggish compared to previous games, and to other platformers. It takes a fraction of a second from pressing a button to performing that action, and the difference is big enough that it gets annoying. It is most glaring if you try to shoot an egg straight up. In Yoshi's Island, you press up and press A twice quickly. In Yoshi's New Island, you need to wait for half a second after the first press of A to wait for the cursor to appear, before you press A a second time. The same kind of delay occurs with just about every action in this game.
The second major flaw is with how secret items are hidden. In Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island DS, red coins are generally hidden in out of the way places, and you have to search the map to find them. However, in Yoshi's New Island, they are generally hidden by being invisible (and cannot be collected), and will only appear if you hit some specific point on the map that is nearby. This means that you will have to step on every platform and see which ones make coins appear.Read more ›
If you don't get this game, there is no reason to own a 3DS.
Game review, Yoshi's "New" Island is downgraded in gameplay experience compared to the original on SNES. Still worth your buck in getting but everything is too easy. They've made it into a pure kids game.
