Nintendo's newest crayon-colored Yoshi's New Island comes out in five days. To remind you that it exists and show off some of it's child-like charm, we have a small collection of screens for you after the jump.
Additionally, the new Yoshi will have local multiplayer, giving players an opportunity to take a break from watching over Baby Mario to throw eggs and flutter jump with friends. There are reportedly six multiplayer games in the game, but only two have been discussed in detail. One involves teaming up with a partner to pop as many balloons as possible with Yoshi's egg toss, though there is only one egg-spawning flower between the Yoshis. The other is a long jump of sorts, where players hover as far as possible through a coin-rich sky. Whoever can score the highest based on distance and coins gathered wins.
They sound like pretty simply minigames, but they can be played through download play, which is a feature that doesn't seem as common as it was on the original Nintendo DS.
