If you've booted up the Nintendo Switch Online's fancy new SNES app, you may well have already given Yoshi's Island a fresh spin. The 1995 classic is now available at no extra cost to Switch Online subscribers - and we'd definitely recommend diving into it.

Now, we wouldn't blame you for missing it, but it turns out that the version running on Switch has fixed a glitch that was found in the same game on the SNES Classic console. You see, in the original SNES title, if the player touches a Fuzzy (the floaty white things), a strange, pixelated effect is shown on screen as you enter a disoriented state. Weirdly, on the SNES Classic, this effect didn't appear to work correctly, with the game just sort of flashing for a moment instead.

We initially imagined that the SNES games on Switch would be the same emulations found on the SNES Classic, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Yoshi's Island on Switch performs just like the original with the effect perfectly intact. You can see it all in action in this video from the folks at GameXplain.

You learn something every day, we guess!
