Yoshi’s New Island



On March 9, Nintendo is hosting an invitation-only event for celebrities and media to celebrate the upcoming launch of the Yoshi’s New Island game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. In the game, launching March 14, Yoshi bashes and thrashes his way through an island by throwing around Mega Eggdozers, which are huge egg-shaped objects that can destroy anything in their path.

During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in fun Yoshi-themed activities like seeing celebrities decorate a five-foot-tall Mega Eggdozer. Attendees can also get hands-on time with Yoshi’s New Island and enjoy special beverages and snacks.

The full North American Yoshi’s New Island website is now live here. We’ve rounded up footage from the site above.

Pre-orders are now live for the newly-announced North American Yoshi Edition 3DS XL. You can place an order at Best Buy here or GameStop here. The system will be available on March 14 – the day Yoshi’s New Island launches.
