Oh yes!

I loved the original so much. Maybe Nintendo made this because of all the stick they got from the under par Touch & Go.

Can't wait for this though!

im expecting it to be good but why did they have to change the graphical style?

-Have you any idea what it's like to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?

This is going to be fantastic.

And Yoshi's Touch & Go rocked!

Looks gorgeous, sounds immense, another one for the ever growing list. Smilie

Oh my god

The graphics look the same as Yoshi Touch & Go, hopefully they'll make them a bit more detailed & like the first Yoshi Island over time. Also the gameplay style looks like Sonic Rush, over 2 screens.

GOD, BABY Princess Peach looks HOT Smilie

Nice and bright, just the way i wanted it.

I also enjoyed Touch and Go, but it didnt have the same sort of appeal as Yoshi's Island/Story.

... WHY.

I really can't see much of a change in graphics. It just looks like a slightly tweaked up version of YI to me Smilie

Oh wow, the true follow-up after the excellent (if shortlived) Story and Touch & Go! Smilie

Same here Ben, slightly different in character models but the backgrounds are the same.

I don't quite understand WHY Donkey Kong is in this. If they had to have three, could they not have just shoved baby Luigi in?

It would make much more sense. I don't like the way theres a baby character for everyone now. Baby Mario was enough in my opinion, and Luigi.

WHAT!? DONKEY KONG IS IN IT!!! Damm i missed that detail. I guess it's kinda cool to have the Kong mixed in properly with the mario universe again instead of only appearing only in the sports titles.

Here's footage of him.


It seems they have the same special powers.. peach using her parasol to hover and DK with his hands.. Smilie

ew, crapppy Baby Luigi, now way would I want HIM in that game!

the graphics dont look at cute as the original, but still I'm hoping that it'll be an alright game, I'm not expecting brilliant stuff...
