    Yoshi and Baby Mario. They go together like, um, a DS and stylus?



    Yoshi and Baby Mario are about to embark on another wild adventure, this time on the Nintendo DS!

    Using the Nintendo DS system's two screens and touch-screen capability, you'll have to help Yoshi guard Baby Mario and guide him to safety. On vertical-action levels, players must use the stylus to draw clouds on the touch screen to protect Baby Mario from enemies and lead him to Yoshi. On horizontal side-scrolling levels, players must use the stylus to look out for Yoshi as he gallops across the countryside. On top of all that, Yoshi Touch & Go (temporary title) also features two-player wireless play.

    Yoshi Touch & Go is a great example of the innovative gameplay available with the Nintendo DS. Creating lines of clouds with the stylus is fun and intuitive, and despite the simple control interface the game can actually become quite challenging. There is something distinctly satisfying about drawing clouds on the bottom screen, then watching them scroll up and affect the game on the upper screen. We can't wait to test drive a complete version of this promising title.

    Stay tuned to nintendo.com for more information.
