US retailer Best Buy has posted the cover artwork for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game, Yoshi's New Island. The cover features Yoshi holding a Mega Egg in a colourful setting. It has been confirmed that the game will launch on March 14 in North America, but a release date hasn't been announced yet for Europe. The description on the website reads:

Your old pal Yoshi is back for more adventure — and he's more prepared than ever for whatever obstacles he encounters. The beloved franchise is making its way to your Nintendo 3DS in this third installment of the fun series, and is sure to bring hours of jumping, pounding, egg-throwing excitement.

He may be cute, but he's also powerful. Fun gameplay mechanics from the earlier installments in the franchise are back — Yoshi can still Flutter Jump, Ground Pound and Egg Throw — but there are more abilities under his belt this time around. For example, Yoshi can use the giant-size Mega Eggs to mow down obstacles, reveal hidden doors and destroy pipes and blocks. With your Nintendo 3DS's gyro sensor and binocular ability, it's easy to uncover hidden areas and aim Mega Egg throws just by moving your device around. Get ready to experience a variety of different worlds, each in a unique art style. You'll see worlds in oils, watercolors, crayon and more. A fan favorite for decades, this spunky character is back, and it's your turn to experience the fun.
