The post-credits of Super Mario Bros. – The film hints at the inclusion of the dinosaur Yoshi in a future animated film from Illumination Entertainment / Universal / Nintendo. Let’s quickly retrace its playful history.
Who has been watching all the credits Of Super Mario Bros. – The Movie knows that the Nintendo and theIllumination have in fact promised, with a short scene, the arrival of dinosaur Yoshi in an eventual (almost certain, let’s be honest!) next movie animation dedicated to the characters. Yoshi is one of the relatively newest characters in the Super Mario gang, but he too has managed to mark more than one generation of gamers…
Super Mario Bros. – Movie Promises Yoshi: Nintendo Dinosaur Trivia
While the other characters in Mario’s gang were born in the eighties, the dinosaur Yoshi first appeared in Super Mario World (1990) for the SNEStherefore in full epoch 16 bit. She actually shouldn’t have gone like this: Shigeru Miyamoto he wanted to give Mario the chance to ride a dinosaur-steed already in Super Mario Bros. of 1985, but it was the technical limitations of the previous Nintendo machine, the NES a 8bit, to force him to contain his creativity. For Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988, again for NES), although the design already looked at the almost open structure of Super Mario World, the same technological limits recurred: for this reason Yoshi waited for another round and a change of hardware generation before finally seeing the light .
Yoshi was born unborn egg and it’s rideable by Mariowhich also takes advantage of its amusing ability to devour enemiescatching them with a very long tongue also able to hook holds or distant bonuses: swallowed enemies can be spat out as projectiles against other opponents, or turned into eggs. As always, Miyamoto didn’t think in narrative terms, but rather on the expansion of the possibility of interaction. Strictly fun and lively interaction!
Yoshi, instant protagonist by popular acclaim
While the glory from the protagonists of even important characters such as Peach e Luigi was long over the years, Yoshi immediately proved to be so popular, especially with children, as to push Miyamoto and Nintendo to already make him the star of a flagship like Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island (1995), the swan song of the SNES, with a spectacular technical realization. In this beloved platformer, it was told in a prequel how the stork carrying the infants Mario and Luigi had been hijacked by a young Bowser, who wanted to prevent the birth of his nemeses after receiving a prophecy! Luigi was kidnapped, the “Baby Mario” it fell on theyoshi island, who loaded it on his shoulders and set off to rescue Luigi and defeat the bad guy. Miyamoto and him calibrated the game on the little ones, not just with a more accessible level of difficulty, but also on an aesthetic level, with backdrops that recalled a childish trait. In more than a historical ranking of the best video games ever made, Yoshi’s Island it never fails.
Yoshi before and after Super Mario Bros. – The Movie
Since 1995, Yoshi has become one of the most popular characters in the Nintendo stable, so much so that he has even been reinstated as a co-star in Super Mario 64 DSthe portable remake of the seminal Super Mario 64. However, beyond his appearances in the flagship series, as in the last Super Mario Odyssey (2017) for Switch, Yoshi has had games of his own ever since Yoshi’s Story (1997) for N64, to get to the last Yoshi’s Crafted World (2017) for Switch, all characterized by a more tolerant gameplay: not aimed at “hardcore” gamers, the adventures of Yoshi are a parenthesis of colorful fantasy that smells like childhoodwith a slower pace and occasional light puzzles to improve your results.
