That's not even close to a confirmation. So being "old" or late to the news is wrong.
You don't remember the debug menu on Miiverse?
EDIT: woops, found link.
Argh, I need this!
As easy as Epic Yarn was, I did enjoy the game greatly (though I paid almost nothing for it). Hopefully this one is a more traditional platformer in terms of difficulty. I'm not expecting NSMBU levels but maybe something more akin to Yoshi's Island.
From the footage and screen it's not just going to be 2D. There are 3D Planes in there so the game will have a lot of 2.5D stuff going on.
i'm on board
its a joke http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=Ll-lia-FEIY
who can't even spell the word baby.
I'm disappointed, guess nothing like yoshis island is ever happening again.
Ah, who am I kidding? I'm a sucker for cuteness and tweeness. Yoshi's my favorite character in the Super Mario series, so, basically, I'm glad that no one can see me weeping right now. IT'S BEAUTIFUL!
(I do think pastels work better for Yoshi and yarn for Kirby Of The Star, based on their storytelling styles. It's still a wonder, though, and Good-Feel is the best.)
Unfortunately, I feel that Good Feel just doesn't make very engaging or challenging gameplay in their games (Wario, Kirby) so I'm going to probably hold off on this game until I hear good word of mouth on it's overall gameplay/fun/challenge.
I didn't understand anything Iwata said, but I got the impression they began to code the game using Kirby's Epic Yarn's engine and art style, and have eventually adjusted it to its own thing...
So, which footage shows their hopes for the actual game? The first couple seconds look just like they imported Yoshi into Kirby's Epic Yarn. But, towards the end they show a couple really nice looking HD screens.
Or is this literally Yoshi's Epic Yarn? :/
This screen looks alright:
But thats about it.
kirbys epic yarn was incredible, and this literally looks exactly like it- sold
Funny side note for those saying it's a kiddy platform - holding onto all the beads in order to unlock the secret levels in each world drove my wife to her first game rage ever. It was the meta knight boss fight and she kept losing all her beads and said she wasn't going to bother finishing it.
But she came back, did it, and finished the game.
Yoshi's Epic Yarn = day 1 buy and has convinced me, among other Direct announcements, to get a Wii U this year.
but the Stages in Smash 4 are going to be pretty amazing even just based on the games we're seeing today.
