Nintendo has a long history of producing some really high quality commercials for it’s big franchises, and this latest one for Yoshi’s New Island is no exception. The ad shows Yoshi tearing through some real-life scenes in various forms such as a helicopter, bob-sled, and of course as a giant rolling egg. These are followed by gameplay footage of Yoshi in these forms with a brief explanation of each. It’s clever how Nintendo have taken the opportunity to show off new gameplay features instead of just creating a cute commercial starring Yoshi.

Yoshi’s New Island will be released this week on March 14th alongside a standalone Yoshi-themed 3DS XL which will sell separately for $199. Will you be picking up Yoshi’s New Island or the special edition handheld on March 14? Let us know on twitter or in the comments below!
