Nintendo has announced a third game in the Yoshi's Island series, due for release exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.

The game rejoins Yoshi and Baby Mario, who must work their way through various side-scrolling levels using the dinosaur's traditional flutter jumps, ground pounds and egg throws.

The game will also feature "a host of new actions that use the unique features of Nintendo 3DS".

A release date has not been announced. For the first screenshots, head through to our screenshot gallery.
