ROM Information

Yoshi’s New Island is a 2014 platform game developed by Arzest and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS handheld game console. First released in Europe and North America in March 2014, Yoshi’s New Island is a retcon of the events of the ending of the 1995 game Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, and is set prior to the events of the 2006 game Yoshi’s Island DS. Yoshi’s New Island takes place immediately following the events of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, where a stork delivers twins Baby Mario and Baby Luigi to a couple in the Mushroom Kingdom assumed to be their parents.

The opening of Yoshi’s New Island reveals that the stork had delivered the babies to the wrong couple. The stork reclaims the babies and sets off to locate their real parents, but is ambushed by Kamek in mid-flight. Kamek captures the stork and Baby Luigi, but Baby Mario falls and reunites with the Yoshi clan on Egg Island, a floating island that was conquered by Baby Bowser. Baby Mario can telepathically sense Baby Luigi’s location; the Yoshi clan agrees to escort Baby Mario across the island and rescue Baby Luigi.

Once Baby Mario and Yoshi make it to Baby Bowser’s castle, Baby Bowser wakes up and jumps on Kamek who attempted to get Baby Mario and Yoshi out. The gameplay is similar to other Yoshi’s Island games, involving Yoshi needing to reach the goal at the end of each stage while protecting Baby Mario from enemies by throwing eggs as a weapon, and sometimes transforming into a vehicle. There are six vehicle forms in the game: Hot Air Balloon, Helicopter, Jackhammer, Mine Cart, Bobsled, and Submarine. They are controlled using the console’s gyroscope.

A new feature to this game are Mega Eggdozers, larger than usual Yoshi eggs, which are able to hit and destroy some obstacles in the way, as well as Metal Eggdozers, which are slightly smaller and roll across terrain. Yoshi obtains these by eating Giant Metal Shy Guys, respectively. In underwater stages, where Yoshi must walk on the seafloor, is another new addition. If the player is having difficulty completing a stage, Yoshi can obtain Flutter Wings, which allows for indefinite hovering, and Golden Flutter Wings, which give Yoshi invincibility as well.

What if the ROM is encrypted?

If you find a ROM that's encrypted, you need to use the Batch CIA 3DS Decryptor, created by Matif.

The ROM isn't working correctly?

Not all games are fully compatible with Citra. If you do find a game that's not working, try using the new Lime3DS emulator, the continuation of Citra since its shutdown.
