Heh. Time travel. It figures.

Whoa! And now they're making a new Yoshi game. "Yoshi's Universal Gravitation". Sounds like a physics book from a japanese scientist to me.

You spelled 'scientist' wrong. I feel the need to point this out.

Edit: Looked at your location, feel like a bastard for pointing out a typo to someone whose first language isn't english, especially with Brazillian Cara around to remind us all of the precious gifts of grammar and sanity.

He just forgot the 's'. It's more of a typo than a true spelling error.

Actually, the Yoshi game has been out in Japan for awhile, though I heard it was a disappointment.

Yoshi's Universal Gravitation? Is that Touch & Go or am I mistaken?

They're different games. Touch and Go is for the DS, as it uses the stylus to move Yoshi carrying the baby Mario. Universal Gravitation game is for the GBA, and uses cartridge tilt sensors (ala WarioWare: Twisted!). It's also made by Ohshima's studio Artoon, offering a good explanation as to why it's disappointing.

Hopefully with no relation to Yoshi Story whatsoever, except for the fact it has Yoshi in it. As far as I'm concerned, the quicker the Super Happy Tree is burnt to the ground and left as smouldering ashes, the better.
