E3 2006: Yoshi's Island 2
Yoshi is back for another round on the Nintendo DS
Many of you remember Yoshi's Island for the Super Nintendo as one of the most brilliantly colored and well designed platformers that Nintendo had to offer. Nintendo revealed today at its E3 conference that Yoshi will be coming back for a second round, with Yoshi's Island 2 on the Nintendo DS.
Last time, Yoshi took it upon himself to care for and help a Baby Mario. This time Mario isn't the only one getting a baby-sized version; Baby Peach and Baby Donkey Kong are coming along for the ride.
Depending on which baby Yoshi currently has in his care, he'll have a different set of abilities at his disposal.
The story tells of a mysterious floating island that has suddenly appeared over peaceful Yoshi's Island. Soon after its arrival, a gaggle of kids vanishes from the island school. Thankfully, Baby Mario, Baby Peach and Baby Donkey Kong manage to avoid being kidnapped. Now, Yoshi and the three young superstars must set out on a wild and colorful quest to rescue the kids and investigate the ominous island hovering overhead.
