"Yoshi's New Island", Charming on 3DS
According to IGN, playing Yoshi's New Island on the glasses-free stereoscopic 3DS game console is like stepping into an impressionistic painting that's merged itself with your fuzziest, fondest SNES memories. Expect a release date around end of July.
The round, familiar hills blur into the background and, paired with the 3DS's signature 3D effect, lend a real sense of depth to the world. The painterly style doesn't stop there as the stunning mix of art styles offers settings such as gorgeous water color and chalk art or even some elaborate paper mâché...
The third game in the series offers classic Yoshi abilities while introducing new ones, such as giant Mega Eggs that Yoshi can use to mow down obstacles. The game features different worlds in a variety of art styles, including oil, watercolor and pastels. The game is scheduled to launch this holiday season.
