As you may be able to tell from the above screenshot, Yoshi’s Land Wii U is being developed by the folks who brought you Kirby’s Epic Yarn. From the little bits we’ve seen so far, the game seems like a traditional 2D side-scroller, but this hasn’t been confirmed. I don’t necessarily understand the fascination with turning Nintendo characters into yarn, but the game still looks very nifty.
I think we can all agree that Yoshi’s Island is one of the greatest platformers of all time. If you find yourself questioning this fact, you may want to visit a psychiatrist, because chances are you’re completely insane. While no specific title has been revealed, it has been confirmed that the game will be supervised by Nintendo developer Takashi Tezuka, the director of Yoshi’s Island and Yoshi’s Story.
