Oh hell yeah
IAMERROR  +   606d ago
that style really suits yoshi IMO

The yarn/LBP style is awesome. Kirby's Epic Yarn was artistically excellent and this looks great. Wii U hardware isn't all to shabby after all.

we gamers waited since 1998 for little big planet slash/yarn style yoshi????? NINTENDO!!!!! WAS EXCITED for wii-u til seen the video.

This is a very good Nintendo Direct and I am getting excited.
iamnsuperman  +   607d ago
This looks good but I can't help but see Kirby's Epic Yarn in it. It artistic style is almost identical. They might as well have done another Kirby

If u can't notice the graphical upgrade ur simply blind sorry yoshi's yarn looks incredible wow.
iamnsuperman  +   607d ago
I never said it was graphically the same. I said "artistic style" not it looks like a Wii game. Of course it is a graphical improvement but what I am saying is they have taken the Kirby's Epic Yarn style (which sold) and just applied it to another Nintendo character. I would rather see them go a different direction with Yoshi and just release this game as another Kirby game because the STYLE is exactly the same

Most of today's games follow the same bland brown and grey art style, so why complain about only two games that share the same art style?
Pozzle  +   607d ago
At the start of the video Iwata says the same team behind Epic Yarn is behind this Yoshi game, so it's bound to look a little similar.
Kingofwiiu  +   607d ago
Its supposed to be like Epic yarn.... it's by the same team and is basically a Yoshi version.

Did you not watch the direct ? And yeah the graphics of this or an entirely different level to the 480p epic yarn...
jacksheen0000  +   607d ago
Agreed, I don't like the yarn graphic art style in Yoshi's Island. I hope Nintendo go with a toy story look instead.

So Xenoblade 2,Mario Galaxy3,Mariokart WiiU,Yoshi's yarn,Wind Waker Hd,ect are all new wow,i'm excited.
LastXeno  +   607d ago
Who else thought this looked like Little Big Planet? which is not bad
ElectricKaibutsu  +   607d ago
I noticed that, and even though Nintendo did a similar art style with Kirby, I know we're going to hear a lot of people calling it a rip off.
Veneno  +   606d ago
Dude even the Yoshi model looks like Sackboy.
Pozzle  +   607d ago
I know a lot of people didn't like Yoshi's Story, but if this game is anything like it I'll be a very happy person.
Temporary  +   606d ago
I agree. I gave up my Wii at the middle of this console Gen, but I buy every nintendo system. I think the WiiU is definitely a keeper...judging by the support it has and the great games they just showed us.

Looking forward to getting one.
RogueStatus28  +   607d ago
The 3D yarn model of Yoshi looks like SackBoy, hopefully they have that version in the next Smash Bros
strigoi814  +   607d ago
I can see little big planet style right there...this will be bash i could say
Krew_92  +   607d ago
I kept joking to my friends that I would buy a Wii U when they released a Yoshi game on it. I think I'll wait for another... If ever.

I don't really dig the whole yarn thing. I have a friend who likes Kirby, but he couldn't stand Kirby Yarn... Neither could I, but that's subjective I guess.

They could have easily used the graphics engine for their New Super Mario Bros U game, and just made Yoshi the main character. This, at this point, doesn't look like a worthy inclusion into the very short Yoshi series.

Oh how I wish they released a Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island 3D version on the 3DS.

looks cool but Kirby was very boring to me even though i loved the graphical style. I hope this one has more to offer
MasterCornholio  +   607d ago
Im not really into the cloth look of Yoshi they should have gone with an art style similar to New Super Mario Brothers U.
jakmckratos  +   607d ago
Yawn*.I have a new slogan for the Wii U: It only does Side Scrollers and Mini Games.
Side scrollers have no place on an HD console when they're going to be full retail price. Sorry but they're not fun anymore. I was excited for the potential of a full 3D adventure game featuring Yoshi and they just proved again that the only thing a majority of their huge franchise's will ever be is a side scrolling baby game, Disagree with me if you want but I for one don't want a repeat of what made Wii such a meh system. The only thing they've shown that's appealing is Pikmin 3. They really gotta step it up. This is bogus.

"Disagree with me if you want" it's a shame I can only disagree once ;)

A whole bunch of games have just been announced and ONE of them is a side-scroller. Hardly overkill is it?
Temporary  +   606d ago
I only saw 1 side scroller as well...some of the games look very good though. Im not surprised there are people hating though. Nintendo is pretty much the kid's console, and always has been. This Gen seems to be changing that.

looks boring, hopefully the new mario game will be better and be a challenge this time.
CADmanjules  +   607d ago
Nice! Sackboy Yoshi.. WAIT, WHAT!?
A7XEric  +   607d ago
Yoshi's Epic Yarn basically. I have no problem with another epic yarn game. This looks gorgeous.

Though I do wish it would have been a 3d yoshi adventure instead.
nice! I remember that game! Ninty taking me back.. I want a new clay fighter.

$$ might as well start selling my blood right now to get a head start
jacksheen0000  +   606d ago
Noticed Ng4 cut the video right when he said and.So There is more to this video. Sucks.
Jagsrock  +   606d ago
Got the yoshi happy song on repeat
LOL_WUT  +   606d ago
Looks good but really a sidescroller? Oh well I guess.
Nevers0ft  +   606d ago
I've been playing games since 1836 (my avatar is a pic from my 179th birthday) and I'm loving the side-scroller revival along with the various HD remakes. I'm happy with a 2D Yoshi, especially as it's being developed by the same team that did Kirby's Epic Yarn (an excellent, albeit easy platformer).

Sometimes the urge to be bleeding-edge can get in the way of simple, great gameplay.

(and for everybody wanting a Nintendo 3D platformer, they announced one of those too \o/ )
wiiulee  +   606d ago
haters and nongamers will always have some silliness to say....this game looks fantastic and fits yoshi's world perfectly and shows that wiiu is fantastic especially with gamepad designs to elevate the gameplay
AWBrawler  +   606d ago
I can see myself playing this and loving it, and bragging about it to people who look at me like i'm crazy
Nevers0ft  +   606d ago
I totally agree. I sat for hours and played both Kirby games, Rayman, Klonoa, Mario Galaxy and various other "kids" games on the Wii - they all played incredibly well.

Anybody refusing to play a game because it doesn't have photo-realistic blood must be pretty insecure.
