Nintendo has just announced a spring 2014 date for Yoshi's New Island on 3DS and 2DS.
Nintendo overlord Satoru Iwata also revealed that Takashi "Ten Ten" Tezuka is on board! Who is he! Oh Wikipedia knows! He's joint general manager of Nintendo's famous EAD team! I knew that!
Iwata bowed low during the Nintendo Direct broadcast to reveal a new trailer for Yoshi's New Island. This showed a scrumptious-looking 2D platformer and an array of new abilities for the little mountable dinosaur.
Yoshi can aim his oversized tongue at objects, for instance, and he can also ingest giant enemies, turning them into giant destructive eggs.
