  • Summary: Yoshi’s New Island is a good choice for those who loved the SNES game or even the sequel on the original DS. If you couldn’t download the SNES game via Nintendo’s Ambassador program, it’s a decent second option.

  • Summary: One of Super Nintendo’s best is reimagined on 3DS.
  • Pros: Handles greatly with it simple control scheme, fun infant-like art style

High-Def Digest
31 March 2014
  • Summary: Lapping up enemies and popping out eggs with the expediency of the world's last asexual rabbit belongs to just one video game character, and in Nintendo's recent reproduction of popular platforming franchises at a similar rate, it's no surprise that Yoshi returns in his own adventure.
