March 14, 2014 will be known as the day Yoshi, the little green hero, not only sees his own game, Yoshi's New Island, being released on the Nintendo 3DS, but also a special green Yoshi Edition 3DS XL console too.
Priced at $199.99, the new console design features Yoshi himself on the front as well as a series of Yoshi eggs on the back. The game itself will be priced separately at $39.99.
Yoshi's New Island is the next game in the much loved Yoshi's Island series and the first to be released on the 3DS. In a classic style side-scrolling adventure, players take control of Yoshi as he carries Baby Mario to help him be reunited with his kidnapped brother. It wouldn't make sense having a Mario game without a kidnapping now would it?
The game also features helpful items such as the Flutter Wings, which allow Yoshi to fly. This item is intended for players who have trouble completing a level so that people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy the full game.
