In case you had forgotten, Nintendo plans to release the sequel to one of the greatest 2D platformers of all time in December on the DS.
That?s right, Yoshi?s Island DS is out on December 2 and it is without a doubt the third must-own DS title of 2006 (New Super Mario World and Metroid being the other two).
Whilst we bicker internally about the many other great DS titles that could feasibly make it into our ?must-have? list, check out the new character art from the game right here, which we just received from Nintendo.
The game is straightforward, classic Nintendo. Kamek has captured Baby Luigi, and Yoshi and his band of babies must ?set out on a wild and colorful quest? to rescue him.
From the accompanying release: ?This time, Baby Mario, Baby DK, Baby Wario and Baby Peach are along for the ride?..[Yoshi] can swallow enemies, turn them into eggs, throw eggs and flutter jump. However, depending on the baby he's carrying, he also adopts new abilities. Baby Mario gives Yoshi the power of speed, while Baby DK gives him strength and the ability to climb vines. Baby Peach lets Yoshi float, and Baby Wario's giant magnet grabs metal items like coins.?
If you feel we should have included any other must-have DS titles of 2006 in our list, just let us know in the forum.
