Nintendo is working on a new Yoshi's Island game for 3DS.


Following on from the original 1995 SNES game and the 2006 DS release, Yoshi's Island for 3DS was revealed by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata during the Nintendo Direct event on Wednesday.

"This game maintains the series' fun gameplay mechanics, such as Yoshi's flutter jump, ground-pound and egg throw," Iwata said.

"It also offers new action which utilises the Nintendo 3DS system's unique features which will make the game feel new and fresh."

Further details, such as a release date, have yet to be announced.
