Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island (GBA / Game Boy Advance)

Game Profile

Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island is a Game Boy Advance remake of Nintendo's classic Super Nintendo platformer, Yoshi's Island.

Looking to create a fuss in the kingdom, a meddling magikoopa, Kamek, intercepted a stork carrying the Mushroom Kingdom's newest set of twins.

During the heist, Kamek successfully kidnapped one twin; but the other twin accidentally slipped from the stork's bundle and fell to the ground. With miraculous fortune, the second twin landed safely on Yoshi's back!

Now, the normally docile Yoshis must take on the trouble-making Kamek and his entire cast of underlings to reunite the twins!

Egg-ceptional platforming

When you take into account just how much of a landmark title Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island was when it released back in 1995, it’s absurd to think that it’s only just being re-released on one of Nintendo’s Virtual Console services – well,...

An awesome game. It makes it okay that we didn't get it on Wii Virtual Console now since its coming to the 3DS instead.

One of the two instances where I do not at all mind the fact that the Game Boy Advance has an inferior sound chip, the other being The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the GBA, due to how it succeeds, even though it's no SNES sound; and that's saying something, considering I absolutely abhor how the GBA manages to turn a beautiful-sounding SNES soundtrack into a weak-sounding GBA quality soundtrack. But that's my viewpoint on the subject.
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is my favorite 2D Mario game as well as my favorite Yoshi game of all time, no matter which format it's in. I've always liked this game more than the original Super Mario World.
