Your responsibility of taking care of Baby Mario in Yoshi's New Island starts March 14th, 2014 at retail and the Nintendo eShop.

This release should start the 3DS's year off strong and prove that Nintendo will continue creating great software to keep its strong hold on the handheld market, as well as prove that Nintendo hardware brings experiences that cannot be had anywhere else.

March 14, 2014 will bring the 4th (true sequel) entry into the series on the 3DS and 2DS after a surprise announcement at E3 last year.

In a year in which Nintendo is under scrutiny, software sells hardware, so expect the 3DS to continue its handheld dominance and gain more traction with Yoshi's New Island. 

Takashi Tezuka, the series creator, returns as producer of Yoshi's New Island, which maintains the same art style with some updates to the graphics and gameplay.

With Yoshi's New Island, Nintendo gives us another reason to carry our 3DSes around and keep Baby Mario from crying and floating in that bubble.
