After the events of Yoshi's Island DS, Kamek decides to try and steal the Star Children once again before they grow up and cause troubles to the Koopa Troop. Kamek and his army of Toadies search once again for the Star Children. However, his search is interrupted by a Toady which came back from a travel to the future ordered by Kamek to inform him that these Star Children are not the only ones, but there are more. Kamek is disgusted by this and now needs to kidnap every baby again to find the other Star Children.
After Kamek follows a great amount of Storks, he finally found the ones he was trying to find. He kidnapped all of them and locked them in his lair. Fortunately, The Baby Bros. and the Princess were safe and the Stork went with the Yoshis at Yoshi's Island to hide them from Kamek. It is unknown what happened to the other babies apart of the kidnapped ones. So the Yoshis and the babies teamed up once again and started their quest to find the babies and defeat Kamek once and for all.
The game is a 2.5D sidescrolling game with 3D graphics and its gameplay is not that different from Yoshi's Island DS. The player can use the control stick to control Yoshi, and can use the A button to jump. The player can use the stylus and slide it to determine the distance and direction Yoshi will throw the egg, and can touch at a direction to throw the egg. Yoshi can use his tongue to eat enemies and use objects by pressing the B button. Babies have their own abilities like in Yoshi's Island DS.
In each player file there are four modes to choose from: Adventure Mode, Solo Mode, Multiplayer Mode, Minigames and Time Trial.
In Adventure Mode is where most of the gameplay available comes from. Yoshis travel an island called Dino Dino Island which is divided in 6 worlds, each world having eight levels with Mini-bosses located at level 4 and Bosses located at level 8. There are, of course, Enemies, Items, Coins, colectibles and other stuff in levels which can help or stop the player in the adventure. There is a different colored Yoshi for each level with unique advantages and/or disadvantages, but it mostly depends on the Baby the player is carrying at the moment of swapping Yoshi colors, because of the baby's favorite color/Yoshi. If Yoshi is hit by an enemy or obstacle, the player not only takes damage but the Baby is knocked loose from Yoshi's back, crying. There's a star power gauge, which protects the baby when knocked with a bubble and keeping Toadies from getting the baby, if that gauge goes to zero the baby is taken by the Toadies and a life is lost. To keep this not to happen, Yoshi must recover the baby while the gauge is still having an amount of time.
In Solo Mode the player can play all of the levels in Adventure Mode, but only if they're already cleared. There's no objective in this game only than playing levels anytime and getting more points in the Player's file score.
Basically the same as Solo Mode, but the player can play the levels with other people. This goes from 1 to 4 players (in Local Mode) and up to 8 players (in Online Multiplayer) that can control different colored Yoshis and can select their Babies. There are three modes that the players can shoose to play with others:
- Normal Play: Players will play in the levels normally with no objective other than just clearing the level and getting into the next one.
- Fruity Fight: Players will go throughout the level collecting various kind of fruits. Yoshis can steal fuits from others using Eggs or by swallowing them. There are also babies, to help their respective Yoshi with their abilities. The Yoshi with the most fruits when time ends wins the game, so there's no finish line in the levels and are slightly changed.
- Coin Crash: Players must collect Coins in the levels and go to the finish line with their respective amount of coins. Yoshis can attack each other to steal their coins and get more. There are 3 types of coins: Gold Coins (gives 1 coin), Red Coins (gives 5 coins) and Blue Coins (gives 10 coins). After getting into the finish line, each Yoshi's coins will be counted, and the one with the largest amount of coins wins the game.
There are various minigames in this mode that can be unlocked in Adventure Mode:
Minigames coming soon.
After clearing Adventure Mode, this mode is unlocked. In Time Trial, the player can play the levels from Adventure Mode (just like Solo Mode) but with a determined amount of time (depending of the level and it's hazards). Yoshi must clear the level in time, and can add more time to the clock by collecting Red Coins, Blue Coins, Flowers and Stars.
Just like in Yoshi's Island DS, the player can choose two types of control in the game from the Options Menu: Hasty and Patient. Below are the controls of the game and the differences between Hasty and Patient.
Used in both Hasty and Patient controls:
- /: Move Yoshi
- : Pauses the game
- : Opens the Options menu.
- : Ground Pound (in air) and Dash (in land) in Patient Mode. In Hasty Mode, it is used to aim an egg.
- : See the map.
- : Jump and Flutter/Throw Egg (Patient Mode), Run (Hasty Mode)
- : Run (Patient Mode), Jump and Flutter/Throw Egg (Hasty Mode)
- : Use Tongue (Patient Mode), Kick (Hasty Mode)
- : Kick (Patient Mode), Use Tongue (Hasty Mode)
- : Used to aim the Egg and throw it by slidding and touching the screen in Patient Mode. In Hasty Mode, it is used to harm enemies and stop them from moving for a few seconds.
Used only in a specific mode:
Yoshi and friends have several moves to perform during the adventure. They are:
Jumping and Fluttering
The player can press (or depending on which type of control is being used) to jump. By pressing again, the player is able to make Yoshi use the Flutter Jump to get into higher places; this is a very traditional move in all the Yoshi games.
The player can press (or while in air depending on which type of control is being used) to ground pound. As the name implies, the Yoshi will pound the ground which is useful for defeating enemies and bosses and make pillars go down and soft stone disappear.
The player can press (or while in land depending on which type of control is being used) to dash. With this, Yoshi is able to perform a little impulse while running to confuse enemies. It also lets Yoshi be even more faster by pressing it simultaneously.
Swallowing and Making Eggs
A Yoshi must swallow an enemy and then squat to turn it into an egg by pressing (or depending on which type of control is being used) to swallow them and then press again to turn them into eggs, or hit an Egg Block. However, there are some enemies that cannot be made into Eggs as some may just be eaten or are inedible for Yoshi.
When eating an enemy, it will turn into an egg for Yoshi. The player can press to aim the egg and press to throw it (pressing again will cancel Yoshi from throwing the egg), or use and slide the screen to aim the egg and target things and then touch to throw it at it's destination, but it depends on which type of control is being used.
There's a great amount of confirmed colour variety of Yoshis in the game. These are:

Items and Objects

|Blue Coin||Blue Coins act the same as the other coins, but give Yoshi 10 coins in one. They're the biggest type of coin in the game.|

Unlike in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island DS, Fruits reappear, but not with the same role as in Yoshi's Story nor in the other Yoshi games in which they mostly appear as collelctibles. In this game instead, they appear as recovering items. There's also a strange kind of fruit called Black Fruits that, instead of recovering health, they reduce it.
It depends on which type of black fruit it is (may be from 5% to 30% of damage):
There are several mini-games Yoshi can play after completing a level by collecting Starlight Flowers, and probably earn 1-Ups. If reaching the "GOAL! Ring" with a Starlight Flower, a roulette will appear and will get slower if Yoshi passes through the ring. If stopping in the Star icon, the mini-game will be played. If getting a total of at least 800 points in a world, the mini-games will be able to be played via World Map like in Yoshi's Island DS.
The mini-games are:
- Flowering Festival
- Scratch and Match
- Flip Cards
- Slot Machine
- Egg Eggstravaganza
- Nuclear Cloud
Worlds and Levels
There are eight levels in the game, with each one having eight normal levels, a hidden one and an extra one. To unlock the hidden levels Yoshi must clear all the normal levels and the extra levels by gaining 800 points or more in each world.
|Pearful Plains||Very Easy|
|Ice Cream Land||Normal|
|Wonderful Heaven||Very Hard|
Below is a list of the enemies in the game. If a * is marked on the enemies, it means those are enemies that also appeared in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and/or Yoshi's Island DS.
