The 3DS platformer will be available in stores and from Nintendo eShop as a digital download.

Announced in April, the game is being produced by Takashi Tezuka - who served as creative director on 1995's original Yoshi's Island for SNES - in collaboration with Japanese new developer Arzest.

The game maintains series gameplay mechanics such as Yoshi's flutter jump, ground-pound and egg throw, while introducing new ones that make use of 3DS features like gyro sensor functionality.
