3DS Retail Games
The next big 3DS game is nearly here with Yoshi's New Island. Turns out that the stork from Yoshi's Island dropped Baby Mario and Luigi off at the wrong house, so he picks the kids back up and soon gets attacked by Kamek. The gang of Yoshis once again unite to take Baby Mario through a variety of worlds, six in total, to take down Kamek and Baby Bowser and save Baby Luigi. With new giant eggs, two-player mini-games, and some gyroscope challenges, Yoshi's New Island does have some "New" things about it.
