The beloved Yoshi’s Island is probably best known for its unique artstyle and gameplay that set it apart from the rest of the Mario franchise. Now we have received another short teaser trailer courtesy of today’s Nintendo Direct that shows mostly what you’d expect from the next Yoshi’s Island game, Yoshi’s New Island, but with a couple new twists.
The trailer shows the ability to grow beanstalks in certain areas to allow you to reach higher ledges. The more fun introduction is the ability to eat giant enemies and create giant eggs that can be used to causee havok all over the screen by breaking everything in your path.
Also of interest, Satoru Iwata announced during the Direct that Takashi Tezuka, the Creative Director of the original Yoshi’s Island, is back in charge this time around. You can watch the short teaser trailer below:
