OK? This is an official reveal video from Nintendo, therefore it deserves a new thread.

As much as I like Epic Yarn's art style (and music), I believe it's been highly overrated.
It was easy, slow and kinda boring... and quite far from the standard Kirby platformers.
This game looks like some copy-paste of Epic Yarn with a sackboy Yoshi... and it looks quite disappointing to me.

I could go for one more with yoshi, but hopefully they will change it up a bit or something.

Day one of course, but I can't shake the feeling like this is gonna be another "baby's first platformer" like Epic Yarn turned out to be. As lovely and creative as that game was, a literal lack of challenge made it pretty boring for the most part.

Kirby's Epic Yarn was fun but not in the same caliber as the original Yoshi's Island, I'm lukewarm.

I think Yoshi (and the levels) progress from epic yarn style to the 3D look. This is especially obvious when Yoshi swallows the power up that turns him from yarn strings to plushie.
I would've prefered a hand drawn style, but this looks fantastic as well.

I just hope it's not a sign of Nintendo rehashing assets in every games now.

I think the world is evolving around Yoshi. In the video snipped we see, he is eating an enemy and getting into his full yarn form. I think that's the first level with visuals we know and then we will somehow get dropped into the more gorgeous screens.

Edit: Yeah, what The Boat said.

Or they could even take it a step further, license out the graphics engine to 3rd parties, because we probably have a better chance at getting Megaman Epic Yarn before we ever get another Megaman game.

Hell, Call of Duty Epic Yarn, Resident Evil Epic Yarn, Kingdom Hearts Epic Yarn... I'm gonna stop now because I know damn well if I talk about this joke long enough, some game dev will probably do it. (If you're a game dev, an "epic yarn' graphics filter would be great though!)

I really want to be excited by this but I'm not.

Game does look beautiful, but it won't matter if they don't even make it challenging.

That was the problem Kirby had, which ended up boring to playthrough.

Seriously, we'll never get an epic masterpiece like YI. Instead Yoshi gets all the crumbs.

Yoshi's Island was one of the best games ever made, why oh WHY hasn't Nintendo revisited that world? I can't imagine what that would look like today. It would be amazing.

Ugh.

I adored Epic Yarn so I'm really looking forward to this. The original was all about exploration and savoring the moment (hoarding, too, I guess), and if the soundtrack reflects Epic Yarn's in any way it'll be a Day 1 purchase with no regrets.

Perhaps Nintendo intends for us to save our tough-as-nails platforming expectations for the new 3D Mario.

Not really feeling the art style. It worked great for Kirby, but it's a travesty that they aren't revisiting the Yoshi's Island look.
