It would be cool to see Yoshi also take care of baby luigi, baby peach and baby daisy

Yoshi's Island was amazing.  I played it so much when I was a kid.  Did not really enjoy Yoshi's story all that much though.  Yoshi's Island DS was a much better sequel, but was a bit too hard so here is hoping this new game captures what made the first so great!

They say it's a new game, but what I've seen are remade levels from the SNES game. Plus: The statement "...make this feel fresh and new" seems a bit off. It's almost like that confirms this being a remake with some tiny new stuff...


However, I do hope it will be a new one, but a remake would be fine as well, since the first game is KILLER!

SMW 2 Yoshi's Island was probably one of the best and hard games SNES ever had. I remember pulling my hair while looking for the red coins. Fun times!

Awesome! Yoshi's Island for the SNES is one of my favorite games. I wish this were coming to the Wii U instead of that yarn crap, but I got a 3DS through some craigslist uptrading recently, so this works too.

Not sure about the graphics in this. It looks a bit like they applied a Photoshop filter to the original graphics.

Doesn't look quite right and actually looks a bit amateur in places imo.

I have really good memories of the original... if I owned a 3DS I'd probably try this one.

What... it has been 7 years since the new Yoshi's Island game came out? I thought it just came out a year or two ago. Still haven't played it. The one the SNES was brilliant though.

They should release a new DKC at the same time; maybe it would piss off Miyamoto again :)

Would be nice if we could get a real sequel to Super Mario World. No more Yoshi's Island. Make a Super Mario World game. If you can do a Zelda: LTTP sequel then you can make a Mario World sequel. Super Mario World, to me, is still the best Mario experience of alll time. All I want is an SMW sequel with the same graphics and music. Give me that. Please.

I loved the SNES game so I'll be definitely picking this up.

It's ugly as homemade sin. They used horrible pre rendered 3d sprites for the characters and the backgrounds look like something from an Xbox Live Indie game. It looks like a cross between Yoshi's Universal Gravitation and Clover: A Curious Tale.

Seems like Nintendo has really been listening to their fans.

Loved the SNES one.  Liked the DS one, though I had trouble with the massive difficulty spike towards the end.

@MasterBlade7123 Isn't New Super Mario Bros U basically this? I mean, it  has the connected overworld map and secret passages.

@MasterBlade7123 was thinking this just yesterday (while playing super mario world) i would buy that instantly easily my favourite platformer, mario world and donkey kong country were the pinnacle of platforming on snes :) ah good times.

@MasterBlade7123 It wouldn't be much different than the already swarming numbers of mario platformers. Super Mario World had too many good ideas and they kinda ran out afterwards.

@RX-78GP02A I'd love to see a sequel to SMW too, as it's my favorite 2D Mario platformer, but I'm still super excited about a new Yoshi's Island that looks closer to the first one.

I'd like a SMW sequel as well or at least see it show up in the virtual console, but Yoshi's Island is awesome.

@Lynx_7 @MasterBlade7123 I wouldn't know, I haven't played it yet but I doubt it. If the U version is the same as the previous versions of the NSMB series differently not. What people need to understand is graphics are great but gameplay is the reason you play threw a game, graphics are more important in movies. Storyline isn't important when it comes to  Mario, graphics aren't the best either but they are par, the gameplay is getting stale. Nintendo is going to have to do something different soon or start to lose their hardcore fan base till Mario Galaxy 3. Also if they can make a Mario Party like the first 3 primarily the second one they can rake it in. I believe Mario only has one really good idea left then he need to be put to sleep like Rayman and hopefully revived years later different like Rayman.  The younger generation will continue to buy the NSMB because they didn't grow up playing Mario and aren't sick of the same repetitive formula yet. You know like Pokemon same thing adding different stuff, X and Y have potential if they do it right. Regardless Pokemon will always sell, Mario needs to be put to sleep for a while and Fox needs a syringe in his brain to wake him up from the coma he seem to be stuck in! 2013 Fox>Mario!!!!!!

@RX-78GP02A @MasterBlade7123 HAHAHA didn't know you said that until I already posted.  In other words, I agree. Free Bands for Nintendo if they're smart.
