Epic Yarn was amazing. Despite the lack of difficulty, it had great atmosphere and variety on par with the Mario Galaxys. Can't wait for this game.

It's also stupid how this is literally riding visually on Epic Yarn's coat tails. Little Big Planet has already gone and championed the look and feel as well, so as people are saying - it would of been much more interesting to go back towards Yoshi's Islands aesthetics.

Disappointing we didn't get a brand new art style, aside from the LittleBigPlanet 3D stuff, which looks great.

I expect a Yoshi's Island 2 using the old SNES/DS art style will be for 3DS, maybe in a couple years time.

That way the parallax layers can truly 'pop' with 3D depth of field.

Which one of these visual concepts are they going for? I see Epic Yarn but with Yoshi, Epic Yarn with 3D yoshi, a more LBP 3D style and then a shot with a window sill visible (like it takes place in a play-room). I'm very confused.

Is anyone else slightly bummed they're using the same exact style as Kirby's Epic Yarn?

I loved that style, but I would've like something fresh...

I would've taken a new spin on Yoshi's Island SNES TBH.



A remade art style of that could've looked jaw dropping.

Yeah it woulda been sweet to see like an animated platformer, like Wario Shake-It but not anime, yoshis island style. Thats where they shoulda gone for Yoshi. This very much looks like a retread of Epic Yarn. But hey, its early days. It may end up being coolest thing ever who knows.

Love this one as well. I would have loved a 2d style, but this looks really nice too.

I just hope they're not done exploring the 2d style for other franchises either.

Love the Epic Yarn look and feel, but a little disappointed, because I was excited to see what the Wii U could do with the original crayon aesthetic. And now I realize I'm arguing on the internet about the relative value of yarn vs. crayon graphics.

It was easy, it was even way too easy. But it was a good game. Not as good (due to being so easy and slow) as Wario Land TSD, though.

Didn't Tezuka also work a lot on Super Mario Bros. 2, the real one, one of the hardest platformers of all time?

As long as it's more along the lines of Island than Story, then I don't care what it looks like.
Those later screens are awesome though, if a little empty.

There's 2 freaking Yoshi models shown in the snippet. (2D and 3D) there's clearly going to be some sort of perspective switch element to the game. I know you get it, maybe, but I feel that some people are being obtuse.

The sad thing about Nintendo is that they never seem to acknowledge when they make a dogshit game. Once they release a shit game in a series, that's it, they'll build on that dogshit and make it worse and worse until we get stuff like this and Starfox Command and NSMB.

Serious business yo videogames etc etc

But really, I am a bit surprised they're going straight with almost an Epic Yarn continuation (wouldn't be surprised if the story crosses over in some way too).

Epic Yarn was easy, but for me very engaging to play, so it didn't get boring. And the one thing it had going for it was that the control and character physics were so damn solid. It very much had a tactile feel that Good Feel seems to specialize in. Level design was also interesting and varied, even if easy in terms of absolute difficulty.

I would have liked to see a take on the original YI's visual style, but can't knock a well executed visual package. Will wait and see how more of this game looks.

looks interesting in a LBP way, but I don't know if I want Yoshi running along a windowsill. I liked when he lived in his own universe - this makes him look like a toy.

will have an open mind though.

I really hope it's more difficult than Kirby's Epic Yarn.

I've never been more let down by the difficulty in a game than I was with Epic Yarn. It was almost literally impossible to die.

If this Yoshi title follows in that same vein I don't know if I'll be able to push through it.

I was so bored with Epic Yarn in the beginning. But as the game went on, scoring the highest star rating per stage.. with the amazing soundtrack.. really sold me on the game. I prefer it over Return to Dream Land, actually.

I have high hopes for this title.
