"Yoshi's New Island" 3DS XL System Heads to North America

Special Yoshi-themed portable arrives on March 14 for $199.99

Last month Nintendo announced a special Yoshi's New Island 3DS XL for Europe, and now we have details on its North American arrival. The Yoshi-themed system will launch on the same day as the game for $199.99. 


Sadly this isn't a bundle, as it doesn't come packed with the game. Here's another look at the adorable portable that debuts alongside it on March 14.



Nintendo's description of Yoshi's New Island

Yoshi’s New Island is the next game in the charmingYoshi’s Island series, and the first on Nintendo 3DS. In the beautiful side-scrolling platforming adventure, players take control of Yoshi as he carries Baby Mario and helps him reunite with his kidnapped brother. Along the way, Yoshi will throw eggs that he lays, including the massive Mega Eggdozers, and experience a variety of inventive transformations with unique controls.


Yoshi’s New Island also features helpful items like the Flutter Wings, which let Yoshi fly through the air. This item is great for players who have trouble completing a level, and ensures that people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy the game. The Yoshi’s New Island game launches separately on March 14 at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
