Yoshi's New Island is getting mixed, often disappointing reviews. Criticism seems to be that the game is flat and unmemorable until maybe the last world. Which kind of sucks since the SNES game can kick your ass as early as level 2 of world 1 with the falling chomps.
I didn't know Nintendo weren't developing it, either.
