Game Trivia

If one were to play World 6-Extra in a non-Japanese version of the game, they'd notice that, at one point, the moving platforms' tracks spell out "YOSHI". Such is not the case in the Japanese release, where they spell out "YOSSY". This caused a slight level redesign at that point. That is because "Yossy" is another romanization for Yoshi's name other than "Yoshi" itself.

In the level "Shifting Platforms Ahead", most would assume, as with all levels in Yoshi's Island, that there are 5. There are actually sixth: a sixth one lies out of the camera-panning range of the moving platforms (the path along one that goes straight down and then counterclockwise and up), but you can aim an egg above and to the right of this area to hit the flower still.

Many people think that this game is about the children of the Mario Bros. characters. They are wrong. This game takes place when the Mario Bros. were babies.

The Cactus Jack foe has a behavior that, while programmed in, is never used. If it lies on an odd X coordinate, three Cactus Jacks will fall to form a stack and the stack will reform as needed if only one is left in that stack.

There are several unused transformations for Yoshi still programmed into the game: those for a mushroom, a plane, and a tree.

Famous Quotes

A long, long time ago...

This is a story about baby Mario and Yoshi.

A stork hurries across the dusky, pre-dawn sky. In his bill, he supports a pair of twins. Suddenly, a shadow appears in a gap between the clouds and races towards the stork with blinding speed.

Kamek: "SCRREEEECH!! The babies are mine!"

WOW!!! Snatching only one baby, the creature vanishes into the darkness from whence it came. The second baby falls undetected towards the open sea... OH NO...

Meanwhile, here is Yoshi's Island, home to all Yoshies. It's a lovely day, and Yoshi is taking a walk. HUH?!? Suddenly, a baby drops onto his back. The baby seems to be fine. This is very fortunate! Wha-? Something else fell with the baby... Let's take a peek... It looks like a map. Maybe the stork was using it? But Yoshi can't figure it out. Yoshi decides to talk to his friends.


Kamek, the evil Magikoopa and kidnapper of the baby, quickly dispatches his toadies, when he discovers that he missed the other baby!

Yoshi heads leisurely back to the other Yoshies, unaware of the danger at hand. Kamek's forces are actively searching the island. Will these two children ever reach their parents safely?

Now begins a new adventure for the Yoshis and Baby Mario.
