    Review Yoshi Touch & Go

    Fleeting fun

    Between the DS, 3DS and Wii U, Nintendo has delivered many touch screen gaming experiences throughout the years. While some are genuinely creative and/or mechanically deep, others have ended up feeling like little more than an experiment or a tech demo rather than a full-fledged game; Yoshi Touch & Go falls into that latter...

  • News Details and Images are Revealed for an Awesome Articulated Yoshi Figure

    Strike a pose

    Earlier this year we told you about a budget range of articulated Nintendo toys that are already available in North America, some of which are rather charming. The higher quality equivalents - the Figuarts range - are more detailed, however, and the most recent images of the upcoming Yoshi figure are pretty darn cute. Due in Japan in...

  • Feature 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Six

    On the sixth day...

    In this completely silly run of bite-sized features, we're going to write a new version of '12 Days of Christmas' with a Nintendo twist that will, hopefully, be good enough to sing. Six Yoshis Laying: With the original line being 'six Geese-a-Laying', we thought that Mario's favourite side-kick — apart from Luigi — was the...

  • Weirdness Yoshi's Real Name Is Both Silly and Scientific

    Will re-open the "is he a dinosaur" debate

    We were once told by Nintendo that Yoshi is not a dinosaur, as we'd stated in a feature, but that he was simply a Yoshi. Once we'd dusted ourselves down from the polite but firm telling off, we felt indignant. He is a dinosaur, with boots, what's so wrong about that? It is possible that down the road of...

  • News Nintendo of Europe Adds Yoshi Backpack to Club Nintendo Websites

    Egg-cellent for carrying things around

    Another month, another good reason for us to all empty our Club Nintendo Star accounts; Nintendo of Europe has recently updated its Club Nintendo reward service to most include a Yoshi-themed rucksack, as seen above. Available for 6500 stars and sporting the classic Yoshi egg design, the backpack comes with...

  • News Yoshi Folder & Bookmark Set Arrives on Club Nintendo on Europe

    Cuteness overload

    The relatively recent 3DS release Yoshi's New Island may have endured a mixed critical and commercial reaction, but we certainly haven't lost any of our love for the mascot(s). Even if his games are occasionally missteps, we still think he's the best dino-like hero in the games industry — he's not a dinosaur, apparently. Club...

  • News Yoshi's New Island is Still Throwing Eggs in the UK Top 20

    Pokémon provides the only other Nintendo-exclusive top 40 presence

    After making its UK all-format chart début in 12th place, a test for 3DS title Yoshi's New Island has been to see how its momentum stacks up — not too badly, as it turns out. In its second week Yoshi's adventure is in 16th place — it holds the same spot in the single-platform...

  • Weirdness Titanfall Gets a Glorious Yoshi Write-Up in The Times

    We'd totally buy Titanfall: Yoshi Edition

    There's no getting around the fact that Yoshi's New Island had mixed reviews — we awarded it a 5/10 score, with various major outlets varying from 4 to 8 out of 10; there's little denying that it divided opinion. It's out in the wild now, however, and consumers will make their own decisions on how the...

  • Feature Baby Mario's Global Adventure Through Twitter

    More social networking hijinks from Nintendo

    During February Cranky Kong took over Nintendo of America's Twitter account for a day in order to promote Wii U release Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Nintendo had made much of the character's inclusion in the game, even officially revealing him at the VGX Awards, and took the opportunity to have a...

    Review Yoshi's New Island


    Back in 1995, Yoshi's Island turned heads when it was announced as the successor to the masterful Super Mario World. Appearing to be more of a spin-off than a direct sequel, there was skepticism as to whether such a departure could live up to the Mario name and please fans of the series. Fortunately the unique gameplay mechanics,...
