I wish such a game could be released by Nintendo. In the same style as this game(and possibly better? heck, it'd BETTER be improved over Yoshi's Island DS and Yoshi's Story), and with new features? You'd better believe I'd be first in line to play it.
Does make me wonder(now with Wii U coming out this month), I wonder if there are any plans as of now to make a new Pilotwings or F-Zero game for the Wii U? And I'd love it, if Nintendo stopped overdoing the New Super Mario Bros. games(first one on DS is boring when I look back on the time I spent playing it, IMHO), and tried out bringing back different franchises of the past such as a newer game in the style of Yoshi's Island.
np: Extm. G 3(PS2), Yoshi Island(SNES), Kirby Pnbl. Land(GB) quest to 100% YI: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/588740-super-mario-world-2-yoshis-island/63984893
SMW was SMB4 in Japan. Yoshi's Island was called Super Mario: Yoshi's Island. So, what you really want is Super Mario Bros. 5. Searching for it in Wikipedia redirects you to SMB Wii. So play SMB Wii.
Here's the thing.
.......nah I've already been over this whole 'naming' process before. But essentially I'd like a game as infulential as SMW and SMW2: YI released over here in the West as SMW3, DESPITE whatever naming convention it's given in Japan.
Waiting for Mirrors Edge 2 and a new 'proper' Shining Force.
