Yoshi's New Island U is a sidescrolling 2.5D Yoshi platformer for the Wii U, the fourth installment in the Yoshi's Island series (after Yoshi's New Island), and the sixth game in the Yoshi series. It is a follow-up game of Yoshi's New Island, released in 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS. Yoshi's New Island U is the first Yoshi's Island title to hit a home console since Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Kamek and his army of Toadies steal all of the babies in the Mushroom Kingdom, as well as in other nearby areas. The Toadies take the babies to Egg Island, but Mario and the Stork comes in and attacks two Toadies, making them drop the babies they are carrying. The two babies land on Egg Island and are revealed to be Baby Mario and Baby Peach. The Yoshis find the babies but, Kamek suddenly proceeds to launch the Yoshis, Mario, his infant self, the Stork, and Baby Peach away from the island, leading the heroes to land on Wildflower Paradise. Afterwards, Kamek seizes Egg Island for their own, and the Yoshis figure out that Baby Mario wants to save Baby Luigi, Baby Daisy, Baby Waluigi, and the other babies from Kamek and his Toadies, setting the Yoshis, Mario, the Stork, Baby Mario, and Baby Peach to go on a new adventure and save the babies.
The Yoshis take the babies with them and go to rescue the kidnapped babies. Later on in the adventure, sometime after the defeat of Ferb the Fuzzy, a group of Ukikis kidnaps Baby Peach. The Yoshis and Baby Mario find another baby, Baby Donkey Kong, who was left behind when the Toadies were kidnapping all the other babies. With the help of Baby Donkey Kong, Yoshi is able to rescue Baby Peach from the Ukikis. Baby Donkey Kong joins the team when the Ukikis are defeated.
Promptly after defeating Kamek on a battleship, Mario, the Yoshis, and the babies are swept away by a tidal wave in a storm. They eventually find Baby Wario, who is also left behind. Baby Wario then decides to join the party.
When the Crabble King is defeated, Baby Wario decides to join a team of Bandits in hope of getting money. Meanwhile, after the Yoshis defeat Kamek in Crystal Tundra, it is revealed that future Bowser and future Kamek are the ones kidnapping the babies and that they are looking for the seven star children. The star children are young children that have magical stars in them. If one collects all the stars, then the owner will rule the universe. Kamek kidnaps Baby Bowser (while Kamek of the past tries to stop him), and Baby Bowser and Bowser get into a fight, ending with Bowser causing his infant self to fall out of a window of the castle. Baby Bowser lands on Yoshi's back and joins their team, although they are worried that he might attack them.
Baby Bowser does not stay for the rest of the adventure. When Chuck the Chomp is defeated, he leaves with Kamek, who then returns to Bowser's Castle and uses a Crystal Ball to check every baby they have kidnapped (with the exception of Baby Luigi, Baby Daisy, and Baby Waluigi, who hide from it) to determine if they are star children, which they are not. Bowser becomes furious, and he sends the Toadies to keep looking for more babies.
The team finally arrives at Bowser's Castle where Baby Wario and Baby Bowser are arguing over who gets to keep some treasure. They then notice the Yoshis and help them travel through the castle. When they finally get to the top of the castle, however, Baby Bowser tells the Yoshis to leave. When they do not leave, Baby Bowser thinks Yoshi is there to steal his treasure. Baby Bowser fights Yoshi, but Yoshi defeats him.
Bowser then comes in the room and is angry at what Yoshi did to his younger self. He then fights Yoshi, but gets defeated just like his younger self. Kamek then uses his hammer to help Bowser become giant. The four babies with four Yoshis fight against the Giant Bowser using Mega Eggdozers and are eventually able to defeat him. Kamek escapes when Bowser is defeated, with four Toadies carrying Bowser right behind him. Baby Bowser decides to escape with Bowser and Kamek, and holds on to his broomstick.
The Yoshis save all the kidnapped babies, and the storks take all the babies back to their home, except for Baby Wario, who is homeless. Supposedly, the Stork adopts Baby Wario and takes him to a raft where Baby Bowser's treasure ends up. A flying rock hits Kamek's broomstick, and Baby Bowser lets go and falls down right in his treasure. Baby Wario and Baby Bowser start arguing about who gets to keep the treasure again.
It is then revealed that the ten star children are Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Baby Donkey Kong, Baby Rosalina, Baby Wario, Baby Waluigi, Baby Bowser, and a newborn Baby Yoshi, who hatches from its Yoshi Egg at the end of the game.
From the Options menu, players can change the controls of the game. The player can choose from two sets of controls: and , and two modes: Hasty and Patient, Below are the controls of the game:
- : Used to move the Yoshis. Pressing it down makes Yoshi crouch or make eggs. If the down arrow is pressed in the air, Yoshi will ground pound.
- : Pauses the game and opens the "Options" menu.
- : Used to make Yoshi throw a Yoshi Egg. In Hasty mode: Holding the button, makes Yoshi aim at his target. Letting go of the button makes Yoshi throw the egg, in Patient mode the player has to press the button again to make Yoshi throw the egg.
- : While Yoshi is aiming up and down, pressing the button makes Yoshi lock on a specific location.
- : Used to jump, pressing it again will make Yoshi Flutter Jump.
- : Used to eat or spit an enemy. With Baby Mario, the player can dash by holding the button.
In this set: the and can be used instead of the and respectively.
- : Used to jump, pressing it again will make Yoshi Flutter Jump.
- : Used to Eat or spit an enemy. With Baby Mario, the player can dash by holding the button.
What returns from Yoshi's Island DS at certain spots are Stork Stops, which let Yoshis change babies, providing different unique abilities. All four hidden babies in order can be unlocked by completing boss levels of the Adventure Mode.
|Baby Mario||Wildflower Valley||A Yoshi can dash at a faster speed, allowing the Yoshi to escape from certain enemies, such as Chomp Sharks and slowly collapsing ceilings. Yoshi can flutter jump normally. The eggs bounce off walls.|
|Baby Peach||It's a Breeze||With Baby Peach's parasol, Yoshi is able to flutter further and a bit higher. Baby Peach's parasol can also be used to catch wind currents. The eggs do not bounce off walls.|
|Baby Donkey Kong||Jungle Country||Baby Donkey Kong can climb vines and chains, carrying Yoshi with him. He can also do a DK Dash Attack, defeating most enemies. The eggs do not bounce, but they go faster and create a miniature explosion that can grab more coins, defeat enemies, or activate winged clouds.|
|Baby Wario||Meet Baby Wario||Baby Wario is accompanied by a magnet that attracts coins facing it (even through solid walls) and can move Magnet Blocks and Magnet Platforms. The eggs bounce off walls.|
|Baby Bowser||Brrrrrrr!||Baby Bowser can breathe fire, but Yoshi cannot swallow any enemies, meaning he cannot make eggs, nor can he collect them. A fire blast often is the equivalent of an egg, being able to break winged clouds and destroy dirt walls as well as melting ice, although the blasts do not bounce off walls.|
|Baby Rosalina||All||Baby Rosalina only appears in Super Guide during levels. When the player touches the Super Guide Bubble, the level restarts in auto-pilot mode: a computer-controlled Yoshi holding Baby Rosalina will play the level on their own; the downside for doing this, however, is that the player cannot get any Coins, Smiley Flowers, or Stars from Yoshi and Baby Rosalina, and the level will not be officially cleared. The player must complete the level without using Yoshi and Baby Rosalina to officially clear it. Lastly, Yoshi and Baby Rosalina do not help the player find bonus areas. At any point, players can press a button to take control of Yoshi and Baby Rosalina and try to finish the level themselves. Losing a life as Yoshi and Baby Rosalina results in being sent back to the map screen.|
Upon entering a Whirly Gate, the Yoshi is led to a course and transforms into different things. Once he is transformed, he must go through a small course that uses the new ability, while watching out for the timer and collecting clocks to replenish it. At the end of the section, there is one or more rings that, if touched, Yoshi turns back to normal and leaves the place. The following are the forms Yoshi can take in the game:
There are four forms:
|Helicopter Yoshi||Jackhammer Yoshi||Hot-Air Balloon Yoshi||Submarine Yoshi|
|Allows Yoshi to fly around.||Allows Yoshi to shatter Rock Blocks with ease.||Allows Yoshi to float up.||Allows Yoshi to move around underwater and fire torpedoes.|
There are five types of transportation that Yoshis can use to progress through various levels.
|Kangaroo||The Kangaroo hops on its own, but pressing and holding left or right determines which way and how far it should go. The Kangaroo floats when the is held.|
|Stilts||The stilts allow a Yoshi to walk the same way a Stilt Guy does. The stilts allows Yoshi to safely traverse hazardous terrain.|
|Car||The car moves on a road on its own. Yoshi can jump out of the car, but cannot Flutter Jump; he always lands back in the car or on a higher road.|
|Sled||The sled is found in some ice-and-snow levels.|
|Rocket||Some huts lead to space launch pads, allowing Yoshi to hop into a rocket. Tilting left and right turns the rocket and pressing or will give extra thrust. If the rocket makes contact with anything, the Yoshi loses a life.|

|Middle Ring||The Middle Ring is the checkpoint in each level. When a Yoshi goes through it, if it dies in the level it will be returned to the Middle Ring. The Middle Ring also contributes ten stars to the star total.|

|Stork Stop||When a Yoshi waits on a Stork Stop for a certain amount of time, the Stork will arrive and allow Yoshi to change which baby it is carrying.|
