In just two short days, on March 14, Yoshi’s New Island for Nintendo 3DS comes out! I’m definitely planning on picking up a copy. I love Yoshi. This adorable dragon totally appeals to my girly side that loves cute things. Before I get a chance to play Yoshi’s New Island, I wanted to talk about my favorite Yoshi game: Yoshi’s Story!
It’s not secret that Nintendo 64 is my favorite of game consoles, and I first played Yoshi’s Story rented from Blockbuster. Remember when that was a thing? I (or, I guess, my mom?) actually rented this multiple times until I finally bought a copy. Back then, I didn’t have much independent purchasing power. I loved the colored-in drawing style, and the all the colored Yoshis! The multi-colored Yoshis were a real selling point for me. Pallet swaps can be so much fun. My favorite was the light blue! Most of all, I loved this little Yoshi song.
I listened to this thing over and over again. This is probably not normal, but I have never claimed to be.
Are you planning on playing Yoshi’s New Island?
I can’t wait for a new adventure with Yoshi! I’m excited to see all the things Yoshi can turn into, and to see the new island itself!
