A pretty but short story
This review originally went live in 2016, and we're updating and republishing it to mark the arrival of N64 games on Nintendo Switch Online. There's a lot to love about Yoshi's Story. The presentation is gorgeous, the mechanics are solid, the music is fantastic, and seeing a bunch of Yoshis wandering about remains adorable...
From the un-egg-ceptable to the egg-ceptional, as ranked by you
Yoshi! The little green dinosaur has been on our screens for a long time now — over 30 years, in fact — but did you know that his first-ever spin-off game was an underwhelming block-falling puzzle à la Tetris? Honestly, it's a miracle that Mr. Munchakoopas (to use his full name)...
It's the weekend and that means it's time for another edition of Box Art Brawl. Before we head into this week's dino duel, let us first recap what happened last time. In celebration of its 30-year anniversary, we looked at the Gotham-set beat 'em up Batman Returns on the SNES, pitting the EU/NA and Japanese covers against each other. Simply...
Find out what's changed behind-the-scenes
Nintendo has today updated its Switch Online N64 library with the addition of GoldenEye 007. It's also bumped up the app to Version 2.9.0 - so what's changed? As you probably know by now, the video game giant doesn't normally share patch notes about these app updates. Fortunately, well-known dataminer...
What's your favourite memory of it?
The Nintendo 64 era was loaded with plenty of exciting first-party releases, but one that you might not always consider when reflecting on this generation is Yoshi's Story. This delightful side-scrolling platfomer was first released in Japan in 1997 and today marks a special milestone. Yes, believe it or not, but...
A Nintendo Life Lesson
Plenty of games get a bit of a bad reputation for one reason or another, and many of us who feel strongly about those titles aren't happy with how many people view them. Take Yoshi's Story for example: a game this writer played as a child and loved to pieces, so when the opportunity came up to explore the game in greater...

Getting to know the green one
We all know and love Mario’s sidekick, Yoshi — he’s the loveable green creature (also available in other colours) who likes nothing more than to gobble up a Shy Guy, flutter gracefully to higher ground or partake in go-karting competitions in his spare time. With Yoshi’s New Island gracing the 3DS this coming...
Baby Bowser has snatched the Super Happy Tree and cast a spell on Yoshi's Island, turning it into a picture book! Only six Yoshis remain, so it falls to them to reclaim the tree and restore happiness to the world.
This cute, colourful platformer uses a unique '2.5-D' graphical style to render impressive character models and bright, vibrant environments in which the Yoshis can run, swim, 'flutter' jump and sniff out secrets.
Eat fruit, avoid enemies and obstacles, and throw eggs from the Yoshis' never-ending supply in your quest to stop Baby Bowser's plan. And who knows, you might even find the mysterious black and white Yoshis!
