Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Yoshi's New Island might not be for older fans

Tagged games:

I remember having similar complaints about the original back in the day and now it's considered a classic so go figure. I'm concerned as I thought Nintendo were over their dumbing down phase (there was a point a few years back were a few of their titles seemed deliberately easy...not for the sake of kidd-a-fying things, I think it had more to do with appealing to the casual gamer). It's just one opinion and I'll reserve my judgement until the games released. 'Easy' doesn't equate to 'crap' after all.

Oh wow, I'm really not digging the new visual style. I would prefered a pure 2D platformer with hand drawn art. That's the reason Rayman Origins looked so good. This just looks awkward to me. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

When was Yoshi ever not for kids? The guy is adorable. Also I haven't been challenged by a Nintendo game in years but I still enjoy them, so his argument is moot.

Oh it's too kiddy now? Based on 5 stages? Yep, not gonna trust this guy! I'll play it and see for myself.


exactly. IMO EVERY New super mario bros game starts off WAY to easy and uninspiring the 1st two worlds, then really picks up afterward. I felt this was especially true with the wii-u edition.

Like i told someone else though, i refuse to believe that this game was developed from start to finish being "kiddy" and too easy as a mario platformer, while still needing to collect 20 red coins, 5 flowers and 30 stars in every level. will still be buying day 1



Amen on the aesthetics, don't know what made them settle on such an ugly style for the new one.

Was the original really that difficult though? I didn't have many problems with it when I first played through it, aged ~8.

Litterally, the graphical update from improved harware made the game look uglier.

Small note, the wap pipes look like some of the art in NSMBU's purple lava levels.
