This month’s Character Spotlight is, I’m sure, a fan favorite from pretty much everyone.
Yoshi is an adorable dinosaur. He first appeared in Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo by Nintendo in 1990. He was originally created to be Mario’s sidekick and is just that in many of the games. However, Yoshi grew as his own character.
He stars in many of his own games such as Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, Yoshi’s Story, and, the latest, Yoshi’s Woolly World.
Yoshi can do a lot of things such as eat items and enemies with his long tongue, create eggs and use them as projectiles, and he can also fly short distances. He comes in a variety of colors, which is just cool, and in some games, such as Super Mario Galaxy 2, each color has its own abilities after eating a certain kind of fruit.
I don’t know if Nintendo expected Yoshi to become as big as he did, but he is definitely his own character now with his own games and merchandise. Yoshi is iconic now and what a wonderful character he is.
