The new Yoshi's Island art style = Awesome!

I LOVE what they're doing with the stylized graphics, everything looks like it was painted with watercolors. I think it's great, many others try for realism and IMO it's boring most of the time, I love some of the new style concepts like Yarn Yoshi...great stuff!

Looked better on the SNES honestly. I hate that they're using 3D models for this game, they really should've stuck to the 2D:

I've heard that the original Yoshi's island was supposed to look like this:

But Shigeru Miyamoto didn't like the style so they ended up changing it which is why the intro is the only part of the game that looks like that. Maybe they were trying to recreate that style?

Miyamoto had the right idea. YI 3DS looks like Yoshi's Story :(

This is why I fear that the next 2D Metroid game will be 2.5D....

I like the look of Yoshi Land or whatever it's being called for now, but I'm still on the fence about YI3DS. The backgrounds look fine to me, but Yoshi looks rough.
