With Nintendo visiting many of its classic franchises upon the 3DS, commenter Daemon_Gildas believes it's high time Mario's trusty mount companion got a little 3D lovin'. Hear him out in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.
I think it's about time Yoshi got some love on the 3DS. Maybe an open-world game, but maybe the "world" being more like Super Mario RPG or Donkey Kong Country, having varied environments taking place on a giant island.
And give us more, varied "Yoshis" to choose from. Classic Green Yoshi, Blue-asshole Boshi, and just offer some more variety and personality with the others. Don't just be recolors, give each one a slightly unique look and personality. And a Name. Yoshi is a character, goddammit, not a species!!!
Also, pull more inspiration from Super Mario Sunshine. That game was gorgeous, but also I think Yoshi (and friends) would work perfectly utilizing the same type of FLUDD water-shooting mechanic, just give them "Food" instead of Water. Hell, they could even use it to promote healthy foods; you know how Nintendo is.
And, for the LOVE of CHRIST, can we at least get a cameo appearance from Geno and/or Mallow?
