Yoshi’s Island DS

Yoshi's Island DS

Game: Yoshi’s Island DS
Start Date: May 26th, 2015
Videos: 28

After the events of Yoshi’s Island, Kamek goes on a baby-napping spree yet again and makes the mistake of messing with the wrong infants. This time however, Baby Mario is not alone as a few other select babies from the Mario universe are here to fight alongside the Yoshi race as they take back their island once again from Kamek’s evil deeds.

So here is a little backstory with this project….this has actually been in the works since like…2014, and even the tail-end of 2013 as well, however, with DS capture being a novelty that is not readily accessible, getting this one off the ground was quite the challenge. For those who watched my updates, this was the long-defined project known as “Project Babysitter,” a codename I gave this project in particular because the original Yoshi’s Island project was once considered some of my best work on Youtube. A month before this project was even recorded, this was still considered an impossibility until Nintendo gave us the wonderful news that DS games would be coming to the Wii U console’s eshop, and this game was one of the first candidates. This only meant that Project Babysitter could finally come off the ground!

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Game: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
Start Date: January 17th, 2010
Runtime: 10 hours
Videos: 65

The Mario series has come a very long way, and although his games started on arcade machines and the NES, this game showed us that Mario went on adventures even when he was a little baby! Even before they could be delivered to their parents, Baby Mario and Luigi were separated, with Mario ending up on the back of his future friend Yoshi while Luigi was captured by a koopa wizard named Kamek. It’s up to Yoshi to find and rescue Baby Luigi and and send the babies to a proper home so they could have a nice Italian upbringing.

This was the fifth “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the bad (camcorder) quality of the project, with no commentary to boot, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The older videos are no longer available on my channel.

I normally did not like doing replays back-to-back, but due to the success of Kirby Super Star and people wanting more from the SNES era, I couldn’t ignore the demand for another high quality SNES game, and Yoshi’s Island was the perfect candidate! The project was quite a challenge to overcome, as getting 100% in this game is quite the daunting task, but when you stick a game from my childhood in front of my face, you are never going to hear any complaints from me!

This project also featured some content from the Game Boy Advance remake “Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island,” as I showcased the six bonus levels that were exclusive to only that port of the game. This content was shown later, long after the project was finished.
