Yoshi's New Island for the 3DS was announced for a spring 2014 release in today's Nintendo Direct.
The game is a sequel to 1995's Super Nintendo classic, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and will be headed by the same creator Takashi Tezuka.
Being first revealed at E3 2013, the game will have similar art direction as the other game with backgrounds that look childish and drawn on. Baby Mario will again be on Yoshi's back, and he will try his best to protect him from enemies.
The same egg aiming and throwing mechanic is back along with the floating jump of Yoshi. Most importantly is Yoshi's long chameleon like tongue, on which he grab enemies and converts them to eggs.
Yoshi's of different colors are seen throughout the trailer, and a new giant egg is possible when Yoshi eats an enemy much larger than himself.
